A couple of weeks ago now me and James spent a week in Cornwall. Surprise surprise the weather wasn't on top form. We managed to dodge the showers but it meant that our days out were very dependant on the weather. As we weren't really able to spend time on the beaches we spent a lot of time driving from place to place. I'm going to break my posts up over the next week or so into the places we visited, bite sized chunks if you like.
We stayed in Newquay. The hotel was lovely, very grand and I would stay there again. It is just a shame really about Newquay itself. I wasn't too impressed. It was OK but not really our sort of place but was ideal as a base, and that is exactly what we used it for.
We were lucky enough to have a sea view from our room. One thing I loved about Cornwall was the sea. It was just so clear, nothing like the sea I'm used to seeing in other destinations around the UK. By far the best part of Newquay is the beaches, I miss seeing it every day.
The one thing I don't miss though are the seagulls. Pesky things.
Well more downpours today, I'm in the middle of a thunderstorm right now. Let's hope tomorrow is a brighter day.
