February half term turned out to be pretty cold and wet, but we still managed to get out and about most days. That’s another great thing about living in Cornwall, there’s plenty to do no matter what the weather throws at you.
I love wintry walks on the beach, so we headed on down to Watergate Bay and watched the stormy waves and clouds roll in from the Atlantic. No 1 was very interested in the various flotsam that had washed up on the beach (including a manky dead seagull- nice!) and, after an hour or so pottering along the beach, we retreated to the Beach Hut for some of their famous ‘Extreme Hot Chocolate’, which comes piled with whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate buttons and sprinkles- it would definitely win an award for the most calories crammed into a cup!
The funky I Love Cornwall website has some more suggestions of gorgeous beaches to visit when the weather's at its wildest- take a look and get your wellies on!
