Falmouth dreaming

Photography, Uncategorized

It’s been almost a month since I decided to leave London and accept a job back in Cornwall. It’s had its ups and downs but yesterday was one of those days that confirms moving back to the homeland was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long while.

Yesterday was the last day of the Pendennis Cup, a four day yacht race that takes place around Falmouth Bay and culminates in an amazing Red Arrows display. We decided to take a trip up to Pendennis Castle to have a walk around the castle, watch the sailing from the top of the cliff and lie on the grass and watch the Red Arrows fly overhead.

Although the day started off a little cloudy we were treated to some beautiful clear skies, which led to some amazing sunset views.

I’m an absolute sucker for a gift shop, and the English Heritage gift shop at Pendennis Castle was no different. I bought the most beautiful blanket (that I’m currently huddled under now despite the warmth of the day) that is made from recycled wool. Wool that has been respun into an environmentally friendly throw perfect for cool evenings, or hot summer picnics. Cool, huh?

So although I’ve had to make some big decisions and move a lot of miles, it was definitely worth it.
