Back from holiday ( if you can call a week off a holiday!)

Last week CJ and i took a weeks holiday. We decided to visit the family i used to au pair for in Sussex and then headed off to Cornwall. The weather wasn't great, it didn't rain too much but was quite cold and very windy. We visited St Ives, Lands End, Lizards Point, Mevagissey ( what a tiny little town!) Newquay... we also went to the Eden Project which was quite impressive and went on a tour to a cider farm. We came home with quite a few bottles of cider!

House on the rocks in Newquay

Don't you just love this house! I think it's amazing, with a little bridge connecting it to the mainland. You can see from the picture that the tide has come in a bit, the sea does surround it when it is high tide. The beach is really weird because at low tide the sea is so far out it looks like a totally different beach.

Unfortunately we didn't spend too long in Cornwall, with the weather not being great and accommodation being the most expensive part. I think next time we will go camping as there as so many campsites around. It was nice to get away though and have a break. We came home on Thursday evening which meant i had 3 full days to relax before going back to work.
