Get out in Cornwall this Easter weekend!

posted on April 15th, 2014 by Emma Raczkowski

Claiming the top 3 spots in this weekend’s Sunday Times guide to Britain’s best hidden beaches, Cornwall is definitely the place to be this Easter.

Pedn Vounder was in first place, closely followed by Bosahan, near the Minnack Theatre, with Lansallos Cove in third place.

We’re big fans of Maenporth Beach, as you can probably tell from our Instagram feed! It’s just down the road from our office.

Some other great ideas to keep kids of all ages entertained this Easter:

  1. Take a walk along the picturesque South West Coast Path
  2. Enjoy a refreshing Spring dip in the sea – pack your wetsuit!
  3. Or just watch the Pro’s at the English National Surfing Championships in Newquay (3 – 5 May)
  4. Take a ferry boat ride along the River Fal
  5. Go mountain biking along the Tamar Trails, bring your own or hire one there
  6. If the weathers not so great the spa at the St Michaels Hotel is just the ticket
  7. The National Maritime Museum is another great visit
  8. Check out the chocolate festival at the Eden Project

Diminuendo – A lovely Cornish poem

posted on April 3rd, 2014 by Emma Raczkowski

Seasalt poem boats at dusk

 

Seasalt Fan Faith Ford sent us this gorgeous poem depicting a beautiful Cornish harbour in the fading dusk light.

Diminuendo

Tonight the boats are restless on the quiet waters

in the harbour as darkness falls.

The wake from small power boats

laps against the stone foundations

of ancient buildings, now renewed.

The last of the sailors

secures his sails

from this evening’s race,

and a dinghy’s outboard engine

hums loudly as it returns to shore.

The harbour side is alight

with arc lamps of larger vessels,

the dockside illuminations.

Night’s falling fast

and brings its own tranquillity,

just the chink of rigging

like a cowbell’s warning;

and the final noisy engine

comes to ferry two last sailors

to the yacht club,

and a noisy gull remonstrates

in an ugly call,

before the silence falls.
