In my post yesterday I said that I like walking by the seaside. Of course, I don't just need to be stwalking by the seaside. I am equally happy driving by the seaside, sitting and watching the sea or walking around a seaside town! All are just as good happy seaside moments as far as I am concerned.
I am finally - can you tell! - getting round to sort out my holiday pictures from our travels in April. Of course I still have to sort out the rest of the pictures from last September's holiday as well, but we won't go there right now, either literally or in any other way!
Today we are off to St Ives, which is, in my humble view!, one of the most gorgeous and picturesque places in Cornwall. It is a real treasure of a place. If you have ever read any Rosamunde Pilcher novels you will recognise St Ives immediately as Porthkerris, a town mentioned in many of Pilcher's books.
On they way we drove through the nearby town of Hayle which is also very lovely. This is actually where we stayed - not this building, I mean we stayed in Hayle!
There were some lovely houses to spot on the way.
Then, finally, we saw the sea for the first time!! Yay!!! Isn't it beautiful!
Then we got into St Ives proper and were able to appreciate the views from the various beaches and the harbour. I will let the pictures do the talking from here.
Oh, and I decided that I needed to share a photo of my feet for some reason! Sorry if you don't like feet!
The other reason for coming to St Ives - apart from the sea! - was to go to Tate St Ives. I am not going to tell you about our visit. Not because I don't want to share, but because it wasn't all that we had hoped it would be, but I don't want to say bad things as it was just one exhibition. Plus, as I shared a little while ago we went to the Hepworth Garden also in St Ives and that was fabulous, so overall it was good!
I hope that you enjoyed your visit to the seaside! I loved looking back at it!
