I hope you all had a great week!
I hold my hands up to being a total ‘Birthday person’ – I love celebrating EVERYONE’s big day – and drag mine out for the majority of January (thank you patient friends and family!)!
With this in mind, I was super happy to share my Birthday this year with one of my best friends whose Birthday falls on the same day! Double Birthday goodness – as you can imagine – I was in heaven!
We spent our joint Birthday, with our respective parters and another couple, down in Polzeath Cornwall.
I hadn’t been to Cornwall until last November, when my boyfriend and I stayed in the same modern beach house we stayed in this year.
NB: A house made of mainly glass by the sea = view central!
Every morning we’d wake lazily, put on a pot of coffee, and simply watch the waves break from the cosy comfort of our (borrowed) home.
Caffeinated up, we braved the sea! I love the heat, but the British sea is spectacular, moody and although bitterly cold, with wetsuits you don’t feel it! I promise!
The Cornwall coastline is breathtaking, and the greatest pleasure to have been enjoyed on our trip away, was simply switching off for a while.
If you haven’t visited Cornwall before, I’d highly recommend going in the Winter months! Summer can be EXTREMELY busy, but Winter is silent, peaceful and very romantic.
With Valentines just around the corner – it could be the perfect last minute getaway.
You can see more of my images from Cornwall on my blog, The Elgin Avenue.
Have a great weekend all!
Till next time!
