Rather unexpectedly, our Easter this year was more about wind-whipped hair, sandy boots and cornish pasties than chocolate eggs and hot cross buns.

It was all very last minute but we went down to Cornwall for a few days.  Newquay to be precise.  We made the decision, managed to secure accommodation in a caravan holiday home, packed our bags and went.

We had a gloriously sunny Saturday but Easter Sunday was horrendous.  It bucketed with rain for the entire day.  Monday was a mix of the two.  Ahh, the inimitable, unpredictable English weather!  No matter, we had thought to throw waterproofs in with our shorts.

We clambered up sand dunes, picked our way around rocks, chased seagulls, made daisy chains, sought shelter in doorways, got lost in narrow, high-sided lanes, gorged on Cream Teas, snoozed and walked until our thighs ached.

Some friends were staying nearby so we met up each evening to eat too much and drink too much.

I've never really been very good at spontaneity but now that the children are a bit older, I'm finding that I'm getting much better at it.  And thank goodness for that.

Hope your weekend was every bit as enjoyable as ours.

  2. Sounds like the perfect decision to make. Yay for spontaneity. I miss just doing it because I feel like it, so each bit of freedom that comes as they grow is good too I reckon.

  6. Lovely pics, lovely place, Heather! I'm not so good at spontaneity either, but it sure does often work, as seems to be the case here! I'm sorry the weather wasn't as good as it might have been, but a nice break for you nevertheless! Joy xo
