A Weekend in Cornwall, Part 3: Porthkidney Beach & Back to St. Ives

On the Sunday of our trip away, we ventured on a bit of a walk.

We passed beautiful Porthkidney Beach. What do you think!?

I didn’t even know Britain had waters of such beautiful colours. But I’m glad I know now!

My favourite beaches are all pretty much deserted. I can’t stand beaches packed to the rafters with people, so this was a perfect beach in my eyes. All we needed was a little more sun…

But with autumn fast approaching, and blackberries turning ripe, we couldn’t really complain about the relatively mild and (most importantly!) dry weather.

After heading back to the apartment for a quick bite to eat – scones, naturally – we headed back out to St. Ives for a little evening explore.

It’s so peaceful simply watching the boats bob up and down in the dock.

After watching the pretty sun begin to settle over the little fishing village, we headed back home.

Only to find my brother pretty content in his Hugh Hefner-style gown and tumbler…!

And lucky for us, the sunset was still creating beautiful colours and patterns across the sky.

To be enjoyed, naturally, with a glass or two!

The perfect end to another fabulous day down in Cornwall!
