Now hopefully I will not curse the weather but it is gorgeous at the moment. Two days on the beach this week have resulted in a house full of sand but it is worth it to hear the crashing of the waves and see our little one exploring the sand. Day one was spent on this coast at Porthpean – I have mentioned it before but it is such a lovely little spot and a little bit of a hidden gem. The car park is £3 for the day and there is a small shop on the beach selling ice creams and bits & bobs. There are also toilets. As for the beach itself it is clean and sheltered and has a large selection of rock pools to explore. If you fancy a change whilst there you could venture up onto the coastal path; Duporthand then Charlestown are only a short walk away.
Our second beach this week was Treyarnon Baywhich is on the north coast. The large sandy expanse was very quiet and sheltered but the waves were big. The beach, which has lifeguards present is stunning and bigger enough to hold the crowds I am sure it would attract on a Saturday. Again the car park was £3 for the whole day and there were toilets and food on offer – we took a picnic which was just lovely. After the beach we strolled along the flat cliffs taken in a bit more of the coastal path – it is such a different coast to the south coast.
After a visit to the north coast why not pop into Kingsley Village – this shopping outlet stocks locks of local bits and bobs and has a fantastic food hall that does amazing cakes and meat for the BBQ.
Finally I must apolgise for the delay writing this blog. My brother got married in Southampton last week so we have been away for a few days which with a little one means lots of packing and then lots of washing. Any of you staying from this Saturday (8th June) will notice one big difference – no Judith & John! They are off for a few days away so Richard, Jessica and I will be moving in
to man the ship whilst they are away. I am in charge of the animals – which I am slightly nervous about so be prepared for lots of animal stories next week. Apparently I just need to ensure they are all standing when Judith returns…. fingers crossed!
