Underneath the Cornish Sky (A Springtime Walk with Doc and T)

We woke up to beautiful sunshine and sky.  After doing my chores, we decided that this was the kind of day best spent outside.

I love the crisp Cornish blue sky.

And of course, the excitable Doc was with us too.

And up we climbed again.

One of the many reasons why I love the coast is the dramatic changes over the seasons, from drab grey, to beautiful vibrant colours, like these yellow gorse, you’ll see them all over the coast-line during spring and summer.

And of course, the coastline is always dramatic around here.

That white building on the hill is known as the coastguard’s hut.  It’s beautiful up there, but we never really go up unless we have visitors.  I worry that one of us might fall!  Yes, I am paranoid that way.

Little T wanted to stop by our special bench for a little rest.  This bench has one of the best views along the North Cornish coast.

And Doc actually hiding from the sun!  He found a little shade near the long grass and plonked himself there.

I love the plaques you can find on the benches around here.  Every time I see them, I always stop and read what’s written, some of them are really touching.

Before going home, little T wanted a play at the playground.

But was actually exhausted, so after a while, we ended up going home.

What about you?

Were you also up and about today, enjoying the glorious sun?

I hope so, because  the last time I checked the weather forecast isn’t going to be anything like this in the next few days!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!


    • Do hope the weather holds for you guys! 🙂 I’m sure it will 😉

    I’m so glad one of us managed the beach today! It was such a glorious day, sadly changeover for me but it was wonderful and some real heat in the sun too. I recommended to all our guests they head out to our lovely coastline today. How could it not be the perfect walk with hills and scenery to die for. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

    • It certainly was a glorious day! It actually felt “summery” 🙂 Sad to say though, all that will change tomorrow 🙁

  2. Absolutely beautiful, and I am absolutely jealous. It’s still winter here in our part of the world and I’m SO done with it. We haven’t been able to play outside for months now and our mental health is all suffering. I shall live vicariously through you as we suffer through the dregs of winter here.

    • Will send some blue-skies, sunshine and warm(ish) weather over 😉

    What an amazing walk. Stunning scenery! 🙂 #CountryKids

    We were the same! We woke up this morning and wanted to get outside. Although our countryside is less “blue” than yours!

    Beautiful pictures.
    It makes me miss Devon even more. Luton aint the same!!

    • Thanks Josanne. Didn’t know you live in Luton! My husband grew up there before going off to Uni 🙂 … I love Devon too.

    Its photos like these that make me wish I lived near the sea, there’s something very calming about it. Gorgeous photos (via #CountryKids)

    If by “glorious sun” you mean 6 feet of snow, then yes, we were up to our ears in enjoyment.
    It has to melt soon, right? It can’t stay 3 degrees forever. But we are also big fans of the elsa dress.

    • Six feet of snow, wow! Hopefully it melts soon 😉 As for the Elsa dress … sigh.

        • T’s Elsa dress has been washed so many times. It sounds mean, but I can’t wait till it gets totally worn-out, that it actually becomes “unwearable”?

          • naptimethoughts

            K has so many dresses. When Elsa is dirty, Ariel just comes in and takes her place. That is, when the child is wearing anything at all.

          • T is a bit of a late-bloomer when it comes to Princesses. She wasn’t really into them until the Frozen phenomenon struck. So far she hasn’t asked for another princess dress though. When she’s not wearing her Elsa dress, she likes to wear her old Halloween costumes. Yesterday she wore her witch outfit which is actually too small for her now 😉

  8. Oh wow what a beautiful day!! It’s amazing how blue the sea can be when the sun shines isn’t it!

    • Yes, it was a beautiful day indeed! And then it rained, the next day… Then again, this is England right 😉

    Oh, these photos made me smile. Glorious sunshine and beautiful blue sea! Love it 🙂

    • Thanks! 🙂 It was a wet day today, but tomorrow might be another good one 🙂

    Gorgeous photos! We are so lucky to live by the sea too. We have never been to Cornwall but would love to go x

    she’s such a great adventurer! I feel like this post is the beginning of a story book!

    • Definitely that – and she can also walk for miles without whinging … at least not much 😉
