cornwall wishlist

Wednesday, 20 August 2014

i can say now that we are lucky enough to live in cornwall and to have stunning beaches a few minutes walk away as our playground. whilst most of our friends dream of london, we couldn't imagine for a second having to move to a big city.

we spend most of our time off going out for walks, shopping at the organic farm up the road, surfing, paddle boarding, exploring the countryside, or swimming out in the celtic sea.

so i put together a short list of places i would like to visit and things i would like to do this year to get to know cornwall a little bit better and make the most of the summer.

outdoor activities

since we do a lot of outdoors activities with jack's family, i had to be a little more creative on this one:

a. go coasteering  jack went coasteering a few times in wales and dorset and it sounded like a lot of fun, it involves climbing, jumping off cliffs, rock pooling and a bit of ocean swimming!

b. go on a long trek  there are many coastal walks to explore around cornwall, plus jack's got his duke of edinburgh gold so i am pretty sure he would be up for it!

c. go sea foraging  food is everywhere around us and since the beach is only a stone's throw away, i figured we should get to know it better and not only collect sea glass and shells but open our eyes to what's edible from shellfish to seaweed and everything in between. here is to give you some ideas.


cultural outings

a. watch an outdoor performance at the minack theatre  the open-air cliffside theatre offers a wide range of performance from may to september, this was jack's dad's idea actually.

e. go see the seasonal exhibition at the tate in st ives modern art and st ives 1915 — 1965.

f. take a class at st ives school of painting.

since cornwall is a traditional holiday destination for british people, i guess quite a few of you might have been here at least once during their childhood. is there anywhere that you specifically marked your memory or that you would recommend to go explore?
