If you've been wondering why things have been so quiet around here lately -- and even if you haven't -- it's because we've been holed up in Cornwall for a week of much-needed rest and recreation.
Last weekend we hired a car and drove to the other end of the country, where we stayed in a gorgeous little three-storey house in Boscastle, a fishing village on the north coast of Cornwall. It was remote and quiet, which is just the way we wanted it, the perfect antidote to the London rat race.
We spent our days exploring the Cornish countryside, with assorted day trips to various villages and fishing ports, including sojourns to the Eden Project (impressive) and Land's End (tacky), while we spent our evenings in various local drinking establishments enjoying great food washed down with locally produced ales and ciders.
All up it was a very relaxing way to spend a week, helped in part by absolutely no internet access and not even a mobile phone signal to keep us in touch with the rest of the world!
As usual I took a trillion photographs -- well, okay, 456 to be precise -- so I'll try and get some of them up online as soon as I can. Stay tuned for future posts about our little jolly over the course of the next few weeks...
