A Postcard from Cornwall

Oh, hello there! Sorry, it’s been a bit quiet from this corner lately. I’ve been in Cornwall you see. Baking, eating clotted cream, cooking with clotted cream, and drinking Cornish cider, Cornish wine and, best of all, Cornish tea from Tregnothans.

I love Cornwall, it’s uncannily like Ireland with the sensibilities of California (there is all those surfers you see). The food is terrific, and local, in the main.

Here are some photographic highlights of a lovely weekend there. More soon.

  2. Was a lovely trip, glad the rest of your weekend went so well too.
    Am full of enthusiasm after Tom’s course!

  3. Gorgeous snaps Niamh. I think the banana tree at Tregothnan is on Darjeeling Hill (couldn’t remember name of it the other day) – so maybe you walked right past the Cornish ‘nanas!
    Oh and Watergate Bay is so beautiful – that endless sand and sky. Look fwd to more pics x

    I’m visiting Cornwall in May and your pics have got me excited about the surf and food! Have already booked into Jamies but can’t wait for clotted cream
