So the holiday is over. I'm heartbroken! I've been to Cornwall a few times before, but not for nearly 10 years so I was pretty excited to go back, but I didn't expect to totally fall in love with it and leave a piece of my heart there! Leaving was very very hard to do and five days is just really not long enough. I'm sure looking back at all the photos is going to break my heart even further...but here you go!
We arrived on Monday to Trevella Park, meeting up with my sister and Paul who came to join us on our holiday. I initially arrived in Cornwall on Sunday where we dropped Theo off to a very weary Rob fresh (or not so fresh) from his stag do. I then scampered off to the Eden project with my dear friend Jonny to indulge in a night of beautiful music, watching Sigur Ros and Daughter. Needless to say it was pretty breathtaking, and amazing to see Sigur Ros again (we worked out it has been nearly seven years since I last saw them?!) and even more so at such a magical venue as the Eden project.
So the next morning I travelled back to St.Agnes to meet up with Rob and Theo again, and then we travelled onto Newquay to meet up with my sister. We had a wonder around the town, did a little shopping and ate amazing sandwiches at Cafe Irie before making our way to the holiday park to settle into the caravan. After this we unpacked explored the pretty spacious mobile home (we opened all the cupboards) we had a little scout around the site. We even braved the swimming pool, which surprisingly was pretty warm, for being open air. Theo had such a good time splashing about that we had to tear him away! There's a little play park a couple of 100 metres from our pitch and a little shop just around the corner too. We discovered Ollie the Owl, a huge Eagle owl, and some other birds and eyed up their crazy golf course (as 30p a game we surely can't pass that up?!) We spent the evening playing, talking, eating lasagne and playing cards. Perfect!
50 adventures we could experience whilst on our stay in Cornwall, which was a fun way to get a few ideas on what we can get up to. There's just so much to do and see though, which is why you definitely need a lot more time!

Even though it rained on and off all day it definitely didn't spoil our day, and we had such fun exploring Newquay, finding family friendly places to visit and explore. We really enjoyed it all, the aquarium, the harbour and seal spotting, looking round the shops. We even adventured off somewhere else for tea, but more to come on that later! Such a lot to pack into one day, but it was such a good one!
