Cornwall Days

With it being the start of summer and a trip to cornwall always being on the cards, Lucy, her mum, Anna, My mum and myself took ourselves off for a little trip to the seaside. 

Anna and Lucy have the cutest cottage down there, so the four of us stayed there.

After a long afternoon of travelling the first place we hit was the pub for food. 

It was gooo-od, as I said in a previous post any burger with gherkins on is good enough for me, so this one went down very well!

But the dessert. Oh boy, the most amazing sticky toffee pudding ever.

It was like eating a toffee flavoured cloud. 

So light and drenched in toffee sauce. 

Try and resist licking the screen. I know, it's hard...

We ventured to the Lost Gardens Of Heligan (Separate blog post to follow!)

Then after, we hit the beach!

Luce and I booked a surf lesson for Day Three. I have ALWAYS wanted to learn to surf! 

We tried to convince the mums to have a kayak lesson... they weren't having any of it!

We retreated back to the cottage (after some food & clothes shopping...) for a bbq and a night in.

We visited Wheal Kitty. So beautiful and picturesque. 

The bright blue sky reflected on the sea making it a gorgeous deep blue which faded into a beautiful turquoise.

What a beauty Luce is!

Just look at the colour of the sea! 

Makes me want to just dive right in!


Just posing on a cliff, because we can! 

The rest of the day continued with a surfing lesson!

We had water up our noses, salt in our hair and a hell of a lot of laughs.

'If in doubt, paddle out!'

We had such a lovely instructor and we both had the best time. I'd recommend Breakers Surf School to anyone in St Agnes wanting to learn! 

 The evening was spent watching England (lose) in the World Cup at the pub, then drowning our sorrows in that sticky toffee pudding! 

D a y F o u r  = hometime!

Lets Go To The Beach-each...

Recently the weather in the UK has been absolutely glorious.
 It's only June and we've had scorching hot summer days. 
(Hot enough to make me swim in the sea in Brighton and that means it must be hot, trust me...)

These photos are nothing special, just a few snaps from my iPhone from various beach days. 
They bring a smile to my face every time, happy days and memories.

If only beach hair was normal hair...

best friends and beach days!

Do you ever get those days were you just want to spend sometime just 'me, myself and I'? I grabbed a trashy novel, sushi, rose lemonade and just settled down on the beach for the day. It was really lovely to just listen to the sound of the sea and enjoy some 'me' time.

Run and jump!

Bill's in Brighton

Okay, I'm a little bit late to the 'Bill's' party. 

I'd heard so many people talk about how lovely it is there and how great the food is, although despite having one in Brighton, I'd never been, so Henry and I decided on one lazy saturday that we'd go there for a late lunch. 
I knew as soon as I walked in that I would love the place. With all the bottles of wine and a rainbow of their jams, chutneys, drinks and other goodies stacked up to the ceiling as soon as you walk in.
Also, if somewhere has a recipe for Brownies scrawled across the wall in fancy handwriting, then I'm already sold! 

Henry went for Bill's Beer Battered Cod with minted mushy peas, skinny fries and tartar sauce, which looked like a fabulous choice if you ask me! 

Being an utter burger girl, I went for the Bill’s hamburger with a sesame seed bun, red onion, tomato, lettuce, horseradish mayonnaise, gherkins and skinny fries... and just because that wasn't quite enough I opted for Monterey Jack cheese too.

Put a gherkin in a burger and I'll be sold. Gherkin cravings all day, err'day. I'm weird, I know.
Look at me just loving life with my burger, I will definitely be ordering this again, but not before trying 'Halloumi and Hummus' a sesame seed bun with grilled halloumi, hummus, baby gem, roasted peppers, sweet chilli and yogurt, served with skinny fries. I think that sounds amazing!

I'll definitely be returning soon, possibly at breakfast time as I've the pancakes are to die for!
