A Day Trip To Cornwall

This post is a little over-due in my eye as we actually took this trip almost a month ago now, but with my mind going a little off track when it comes to my blog, I thought I'd share our day out and some of my favourite photos.
A day trip to Cornwall may sound normal to some people, but not when you travel 4 and a half hours from Birmingham to spend only a day in the seaside town of Padstow but, that's what the Murphy family does…now this isn't a normal thing and some how I doubt we'll be doing it again anytime soon but a few weeks ago my brother had an trial shift at an Nathan Outlaw restaurant, just completing his time in college he's now a qualified professional chef, so given the chance to potentially work for a pro chef he jumped at the chance and well I've been wanting to spend the day at the beach for a while now and obviously had to go to keep Momma Smurph company throughout the day!

We started our day at 3 in the morning, setting out at 4…from the moment we headed on the motorway I regretted not bringing my pillow so I could sleep but instead I ate chocolate and kept Momma Smurphy company while she drove. Fortunately due to no sleep, I got some beautiful photographs of the sunset and a rainbow and drove over the Bristol bridge before it got anything close to busy. Once We'd arrived and dropped Brother Smurph off at his trial, the weather was pretty miserable which in result made us miserable. Myself and Momma Smurph needed to spend the next 6+ hours keeping ourselves company and when we planned to spend the day at the beach and eating ice cream for that short time the day felt a little ruined. Heading into a cute little cafe for a cuppa before heading over the ferry to Padstow, when the weather started to pick up I was certainly glad as I'd only popped a small jacket in the car and typically of me decided to wear a dress that day!

Camera in hand, sunglasses on and dress blowing everywhere we began to explore the town, a town we'd spent time at when I was younger and I was honestly so excited to see a place I'd seen as a child, kind of made me miss family holidays to Cornwall, Wales & Devon. Holidays I used to go on with my nan, aunty, mom and brother. After spending the day sat at the beach, we finished out day by meeting up with Brother Smurph and headed to Rick Stein's fish & chip restaurant, which was amazing…just like any other chippy but just that little bit better. To end the day I treated the three of us to ice creams before travelling back home. The perfect day out really, so much fun.

  7. Oh thank you! Yes it was a while ago now, not too sure how the weathers looking at the moment, hopefully it's not too cold there just yet!
    I'm definitely tempted to go again, though possibly making it a longer trip
