St Mawes

This was the view from our cottage, and the two rainbows were a bonus.
We had a fantastic holiday in St Mawes and the weather wasn't actually too bad! When we arrived I thought we were in for bad weather as the sea leapt over the wall and soaked R as he got the cases in from the car...however we had two days of awful rain and the rest were nice and sunny with a few spots of rain, creating the most gorgeous rainbows.
There was so much to do. We went to The Eden Project, The National Maritime Museum, Goonhilly Satellite Station, St Mawes and Pendennis Castles, also a ferry trip to Falmouth on a gorgeous evening for fish and chips, long days on the beach and loads of cream teas and ice cream (mint-choc-chip mmmm). There is still plenty to do again so I'm sure this won't be our last visit.
St Mawes is actually quite a quiet village (well, it was when we were there!) and the views were breathtaking. I love the sea and we miss waking up to seeing the tide go in (or out) and the salty air as you walk down the road to get a paper and a fabulous Almond Croissant or Pain au Chocolate from Cafe Chandlers.
The children enjoyed their room with the sea view and spent most of the time pretending they lived on a boat.
I want to go away again......
