in a cosy cottage, by the sea …
This is a much needed, hard-earned half-term break in our favourite seaside cottage in Cornwall.
Our home for the week was once a net loft, perched above the rocks – there’s the little cobbled terrace outside, complete with wall and gate to keep the collies safe (actually to keep everyone outside the gate safe from the collies); then an uninterrupted view across to the breakwater and harbour entrance with the beach and bay beyond.
Our cottage looks tiny but it’s wonderfully warm and cosy helped along with my favourite quilt and blanket. I can’t do without my homely comforts – a crisp white duvet just doesn’t do it for me!
So far we’ve had fantastic waves and lots of rain, but I don’t mind a bit ‘cos I’ve brought my sewing machine (for indoors) and am well equipped with riding mac, waxed hat and sturdy boots (for collie walks along the coast path and beach)!
I’m sending best wishes to my friend in NY – keep in touch as long as the power lines survive.
I’m also hoping that all is well for NY’s visitors including a school trip from west Wales – keep safe all of you.
