My Happy Place

Long time readers of my blog will know that it is no secret that St Ives in Cornwall is my very happy place.  We have visited this gorgeous seaside town every year (sometimes more than once per year!) since we first had our family.   


This was the first time that hubby and I had been on our own.  We missed them, but it was easier and much cheaper!!

 I have to say that we have easily fitted back into each others company, and it is a great relief to find that we still like each other!
 We walked a lot, and talked a lot, picked tons of sea glass and stood and stared - and stared - and loved every minute of it.
 We nearly gave it a miss this year, we thought about jetting off to sunnier climes...
 but this is where my holiday heart is.
 It seemed strange visiting outside of the busy school holiday season, but we soon got used to it.
 It was great to wander into restaurants and find a table without having to book in advance.








So I've had my fix for now.  But it's never quite enough.

Ahhhh, I love St Ives too, though I've only been once, a long time ago! That lovely golden beach, and the little streets up the hills...

Another lovely break away with Mr HS and what a fabulous destination you chose.
Lovely to have a place where there are so many happy memories.
The ship reminds me of the ones from Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell at the weekend!

Great pics . This place is very high on my priority list for the next time I visit the UK. I've never been to this coast but is seems quintessentially English - down by the seashore.
