Oh i do like to be by the seaside.....

I'll miss all this

I'll miss waking up to these views from our apartment windows

I'll miss the walk along the harbour/beach coastline with Mrs 64 at 8am as we pick up our papers then sitting on a bench drinking coffee taking in all the beauty of the blue sea/sky. All very serene with only the noise of the seagulls in the background

I'll miss the culinary fish dishes & desserts + the wine & malt. St Andrews Bistro & the Mermaid top of our list for the best food in St Ives. I'll also miss the prawn & crab sandwiches during the day

I'll miss the natives we've got to know over the years, oh & Aggi the now 16yo black & white cat who is looked after by the local shopkeepers & restaurateurs

On Sunday afternoon we had a fantastic time watching this crazy lot on the beach amongst 300/400 others, got some great close up photos on my phone. A band from Brittany i believe







Visits to Marizon (St Michael's Mount is amazing close up) Porthreath, Mullion Cove, Lizard, Truro & Padstow all made for a truly wonderful holiday once again. Roll on next year :-D

Sandi is down in Cornwall for a week or two from Wednesday, I'm missing it again this year. Prefer the likes of Porthtowan and Stagnes to Mullion and Falmouth to St Ives but that's just me
