We have sunshine! Summer is here, so we decided to take advantage of it and headed to Cornwall on the South West coast of England. Cornwall reminded me so much of Tuscany. It’s like the English version with rolling hills and beautiful scenery. The villages all had a different identity. We booked our stay just outside of St. Ives, which turned out to be the ideal location. The cottage we stayed in was through AirBnB and the host was great. I’ve linked to the exact listing in case anyone else wants to stay there as well. The driving took at least 5 hours. We broke it up with a stop in Exeter where I accidentally pulled the wrong cord in the bathroom and sent an alarm off throughout the entire cafe. It was like my worst nightmare having to come out of the bathroom with everyone staring at us. I think we were punished because our sandwiches took 25 minutes to make. During the drive, here’s a conversation we had.
Me: “Oh, we’re only passing one of the great wonders of the world. Go back to whatever you were doing”
Phil: Looks up from whatever he was doing. “Oh, you’re funny.”
This was as we passed Stonehenge on our way.
Where to next? We have to take advantage of this weather.
