It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I fancied doing something other than a pub/ restaurant meal out and so rallied the troops and decided on a day out adventure into the countryside for a nice walk and sea air.
We ended up in Cornwall, an hours drive from home. The beautiful coastline of Trebarwith Strand (the next bay along from Tintagel) was wonderfully quiet, even on such a glorious day. We’d avoided the tourist trap of Tintagel but still enjoyed the benefits of the stunning views and Mediterranean-style blue sea.
My Mum and Dad wanted to eat whilst the local pub was quiet so we stopped off before our walk. The Port William Pub sat in the cove, with views back across the coastline and to the sea so we could watch the surfers and enjoy the scenery. We had an amazing seafood lunch – Mum and I shared a platter for 2 (consisting of mussells, prawns, scampi, crabmeat, home-made coleslaw, chips and freshly baked bread!)… needless to say there wasn’t a scrap left over. It was SO delicious!
After we had eaten our full it was definitely time for some excersize! We started our walk from the base of the pub. Climbing steep steps up to the top of the cliffs.
My Mum and Dad found this a little hard work – I was struggling too! Dusty made light work of it with her 4 legs, and needless to say the boys marched on up to the top with ease.
BUT, once we are at the top…. wow! The views were fantastic. We wandered casually for a while, taking in the scenery, stopping to take photographs and enjoy each others company. I hope you enjoy the snaps I ended up with!
