The first of a series of postcards from day trips around the UK.
Cornwall is an intriguing county of rugged coastline and ancient fishing ports.
Famous, amongst other things, for Cornish pasties, Cream Teas, Daphne du Maurier and Poldark attracting artists, surfers, walkers, and holiday makers from all over the world.
We took a Spring Break and made our base in the harbour town of Falmouth.
We walked the coastal path, indulged in fish and chips, Cornish ice cream and Pasties. We wandered around the shops and afterwards sat soaking up the atmosphere and views whilst drinking cider seated outside the Harbourside Pub.
Point to note - the shops closed at 5pm and most restaurants needed to be pre booked .
We drove from Falmouth to explore St Ives and Barbara Hepworth's House.
This town has so much to offer, ancient cobbled streets, Independent Shops , Art Exhibitions and a beautiful beach for surfing and strolling .
As the Summer Months can get very busy you may prefer to consider a trip outside of this time.
We also visited Leech Pottery which I will cover in a separate post. I plan to write a series in this format of
postcards from days out in the UK to share with you. I think we will all be needing inspiration with the current situation still limiting travel .
