Cornwall in the Wintertime

Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Have you been to Cornwall?

It’s a beautiful county on England’s rugged south-western tip. Yup, this little slice of United Kingdom is made of 300 miles of dunes, cliffs, medieval harbours and oak-forested creeks. Besides that, it’s one of the most popular summer destinations because of its amazing beaches. Having said that, winters are pretty quiet there, which I personally wouldn’t mind if I had scenery like that to keep me company.

Recently, Sarah snapped those images above of her home turf and I’ve been daydreaming about taking a trip there ever since. Can you imagine spending a long weekend in a place where on a clear day you might just see the other side of the world:) Plus, don't get me started on their local fish & chips dinners - the best thing ever!

Btw: did you know that Cornwall is known for early springs? Supposedly, in that corner of the world, daffodils bloom in January and camellias and magnolias in mid-February. Now, that is as good reason as any to make a move, no? :)

P.S: Also, this spot and that British countryside farmhouse...
P.P.S: Plus, 1928 England.
