We have just spent the most wonderful week in St Ives. Both children decided to come with us and we had some great family time - which we all enjoyed. The weather got better and better with each day. We watched seals and dolphins play in the water, and I met up with Noelle, Lesley and Carolyn - my 3 lovely St Ives buddies. We had coffee and cake and visited a couple of galleries and got to know each others tastes a bit more. I loved it. A colleague thinks i'm strange to keep visiting this place time and time again ( I have to say that they have ever been here so what would they know!) but I think you can see from the photographs why I love it. Apart from being stunningly beautiful, it is also my "happy place" - the place I feel totally at peace with the world. We have had some brilliant family holidays here and I am hoping that this tradition will continue for ever.
