The sea sparkled and the sun shone.
I got sunburnt.
And not a drop of rain.
The fishing villages were their usual photogenic selves.
The food was good.
This is a doughnut hot from the fryer with jam and clotted cream.
You want one don't you?
There were daily ice-creams too. We visited this place twice.
Trifle, lemon cheesecake, dark chocolate and ginger, after eight mint, tiramisu, chocolate fudge marshmallow, rum and raisin were some of the flavours we sampled.
I also ate many sea creatures; lobster, crab, prawns, megrim, haddock, mussels and some other unidentified white fish (in bouillabaisse) all of which were pulled out of the Cornish seas.
Katie also tried a weever fish.
There isn't much that gets Katie out of the sea, but treading on the venomous spines of a weever fish did the trick.
Luckily the RNLI lifeguard was on hand to dispense hot water 'as hot as you can stand' which helps break down the protein in the fish's venom.
He was very nice.
The pain wore off pretty quickly and she was fine.
I think the RNLI are wonderful.
Here is the lifeboat crew boarding the boat in an extremely bumpy sea. I don't think they were on a call, just moving the lifeboat to a more sheltered port. It didn't come back.
I'm glad I took my telephoto lens. This picture was taken from our bedroom window from about half a mile away.
Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post.
I am looking forward to September's blogging very much.
I love this time of year.
