Outing: My Birthday Cornwall Adventure Part 2

Saturday morning started off misty, but the sun came out soon enough. It was still fairly chilly in the wind, so our trip to the beach was just for a little stroll, neither of us wanted to brave the waters!

Afternoon tea on the terrace followed, and I was pleased the cottage kitchen was properly equipped with a big teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl! The owners obviously understand tea-drinking.

Later on the weather changed yet again (very Cornish, it's a lot like Wales!) and we went to the town of Looe up the coast for a wander around. There's a small vintage and vintage-inspired shop there called 'The March Hare' and as it was my birthday weekend I treated myself to a Besame mascara. We were also keen to try out a proper Cornish pasty and went to Sarah's Pasty Shop over the street, which the owner of the vintage shop assured us was the best place to buy a pasty! We weren't disappointed, and now I can never go back to a Ginsters.

Back to our lovely cottage for the evening, and after a swim in the indoor pool we spent the night drinking red wine and taking in the views. It turned chilly and started raining (again!) so my Beloved got the wood burner going to make it cosy, and we even went and sat in the hot tub in the rain for a bit!

Another lovely Cornish day!
