All Roads Lead to Gweek!
Well, despite the weather we still enjoyed our holiday in Cornwall. Actually, it could have been worse - we might have gone on holiday this week instead! We took so many photographs that I can't possibly put them all into one post and so I'm going to have to spread them out over a couple instead. Our favourite piece of Cornwall is the Lizard Peninsular, a mixture of soft green countryside and gentle creeks contrasting with the rugged cliffs and dramatic Atlantic with its busy shipping lanes into Falmouth. As soon as I reach our little coastal village all my worries are just lifted away as I sit on its pebbly beach and watch the blinking light of St Anthony's Head lighthouse keeping the container ships and little sailing boats safe from the clutches of The Manacles and other treacherous rocks lurking beneath the surface of the sea. This is the little lane where I begin to forget all my little troubles.
And as we reach the bottom of the lane this is the view that greets us every year.
Then it's up the hill to our home for the week.
We've been here so many times now that the owners greet us like old friends and Rob and Josh sometimes accompany Steve on fishing trips out of Helford into the bay. Below are a few more pictures of the village taken throughout the week.
The Cornish also have a new highly technical method of weather forecasting.
I'll post some more holiday pictures later. I've been a very lucky lady this week. Jayne at Country Cottage Chic and Deb at This Vintage life have both given me this award.
They both have gorgeous blogs, so please give them a visit if you haven't already. I now have to pass the award on to 7 other gorgeous blogs. It is very difficult to choose and I love all of them for different reason - one was probably the first blog I read, others such as Louise have been very supportive of a new blogger with positive comments and a couple more are new blogs to me but have grabbed my attention.
Saucerful of Secrets
These are the rules if you want to play ladies. I won't be offended if you don't!
1.Add the logo to your blog
2.Link to the person you gave you the award.
3.Pass on the award to least another 7 blogs.
4.Link to those blogs from your site.
5. Lastly, leave a message for the people you have nominated for the award.
By the way - we didn't actually stay in Gweek. It's just that every signppost you see says Gweek two and three quarter miles even though you might have travelled ten miles along the lanes from the last signpost.
