From the photo above you might think I'd spent a week in the Med or somewhere even further afield, but no, we spent a week in St Ives in Cornwall - just a few hour's drive from home!

We rented the sweetest cottage just above the main drag so it was tucked away but close to everything too.

This meant lots of uphill walking which was probably a good thing considering the amount of lovely food on offer!

It was just a few minutes walk from the harbour & beach & what a lovely beach it is - golden sands, rock pools, shells to collect.....

Fishing boats....

Lots of cute dogs having fun.....

Rowing boats waiting for the tide to come in....

Illiterate seagulls....

Cute restaurants.....

Winding cobbled streets....

Cath Kidston....

Old church & war memorial....

The road leading down from where we were staying....

Lots of tempting food....

The beach on the other side of the harbour....

The Eden Project....

And finally, the Motley Crew!
