Cornwall

For the early summer May bank holiday weekend, Jess, Elisa and I decided to head to Cornwall for a very English weekend by the seaside. After a very early start and long drive, we made it to the seaside town of Padstow for lunch. After Fish and Chips and pint, we were off to explore the seaside town. After a short wander, we made a healing for the beach to dip our toes in the sea. This was my first encounter with the sea in over a year and we were three very happy sea babies on that beach. After an ice cream by the cute little harbour and picking up supplies we made out way to our glamping campsite. Our yurt was pretty cool, and outside was the perfect spot for a dinner of wine and cheese. 

After a delicious breakfast thanks to chef Elisa, we made our way to Polzeath beach, one of the better beaches in the area. It was already full of brits making the most of the sun, which unfortunately didn’t look like it would last long. Our next stop was Tintagel, to check out the castle and unknown to us, also Merlin cave! This was another very cute village, punched up on the ridge, and the walk down to the beach and cave was ok, but back up was another story. 

After our last night in the yurt, our departing mission before driving back to London was to have ourselves a clotted cream. This is a local dish of tea, scones, jam and clotted cream. Obviously very unhealthy, but also very delicious. We also grabbed real Cornish pasties on our way out, and these were absolutely delicious.
