Days Out near London - Salute to the 40s at Chatham Dockyards

What I hadn't realised about the 40s was just how glamorous a set of victory rolls can be.

For those who already appreciate how glamorous the 1940s were, I send my apologies. For me it took a trip to a dockyard in Chatham, in Kent to have this lightbulb moment.

Cornish Tales - Staying at Boscastle YHA

It was a day of natural wonders that began with the sighting of a swallows nest full of noisy chicks pitched up in the beam of the ladies public toilets at Lizard Point.

Cornish Tales - Beautiful Kynance Cove

Saved as a precious memory, we took the opportunity of visiting a beach so spectacular that my Welsh One had remembered it vividly since childhood.

Cornish Tales - Staying at Lizard Point

Not surprisingly I didn't want to leave Coverack. It had reminded me of the beautiful north Antrim coastline and in particular Portballintrae. What could be better?

Cornish Tales - Sculptures in a Meadow

Thanks to a recommendation from Jo at YHA Coverack we went on an adventure to find a sculpture park near the hostel and discovered something quite incredible.

Cornish Tales - Staying in Coverack

Our journey to Coverack was horrible. For the second year running we vowed we would never do it again, as we finally reached our destination.
