The Cornish Coast

This week I have been away on a mini break in Cornwall. Our first stop was Falmouth, where we visited a friend and took in the sights of the little seaside town.


We arrived about six in the evening (its a long way from where we live!) so we headed straight for a restaurant at Mylor Harbour called Castaways, it literally had the most delicious food I have ever tasted.


We had mussels in white wine sauce…


…the most delicious squid tentacles…


…scallop and prawn ravioli with tarragon cream sauce…




…and the best bit! Tiramisu, Creme Brulee! Two puddings mixed together!



After our delicious feast we headed home to bed….and got up bright and early and headed to St Austell, and then this little seaside village – Mevagissey. It was quite rainy, which was a shame as we had wanted to go sea cliff climbing, but we had a wonder around and stopped for food in a little fresh fish cafe.





The next day we went to check out some sea cliff climbing in Morwenstow, but unfortunately it was raining again…so we had a tromp and went for scones instead! We stopped off at Rectory Farm & Tearooms which was so cute!

And we had scones with cornish clotted cream! Amazing!


We walked along the Morwenstow coastal path (the sun came out for a little while, before gale force winds and hale hit us!)




We took shelter in this little hut, they call the Hawker’s hut, which was built by Parson Robert Stephen Hawker in 1864. Apparently he used to write poems and smoke opium in here and Alfred Tennyson visited it in 1848.

Monkey Man was not impressed by the cold, wind and rain (he’s a sun snake).
