Postcards From St Ives, Cornwall

This weekend was a long weekend here in the UK so Carlos and I took advantage of the extra day off and headed to St Ives in Cornwall, it’s a five and a half hour train journey from London and is located on the south west tip of the UK. I had heard wonderful things about St Ives, and google images showed me picturesque photos of clear, blue water and soft sand against a bright blue sky… I thought these may have been enhanced with the help of photoshop. But as the train pulled into St Ives, we were delighted to see that it really did look like the images, the water was especially beautiful and the sun was beating down on us, I had to do a double take to check I hadn’t accidentally travelled to the Mediterranean.

These are some photos of the beautiful area, while I prepare some longer posts for next week and the week after, no photoshop enhancing… It really was this amazing! Take me back, it’s really worth that long train journey!DSC03393

Which amazing beach have you been to?

Based on my colour themed posts, I am going to be creating a ‘multicoloured’ themed post, which I will publish on Thursday 28th May.  I would love to make it a collection of lots of blogger’s travel photos, so if you have a photo with a multicoloured theme, please could you email it to me by Wednesday 27th May at: , with a short caption to tell me where the photo was taken as well as your blog URL so I can then make a link to your blog. It could be anything from a colourful market stall, to traditional colourful outfits to a multicoloured bird.  Can’t wait to see your photos 🙂 

My colour themed posts so far:  Blue, Yellow and Pink

  1. Truly stunning pics that are drop dead gorgeous. And in the UK which is amazing as I don’t usually think of it as a beach destination. But then again some of my favourite beaches are in Prince Edward Island in Canada.

  2. Cornwall looks so lovely! Thanks for the link back to my blog post. Tahiti truly had the best sunsets ever!!!

    • Thanks Jessi! I’d really recommend it, and it was perfect for a long weekend… the travelling might be a bit too much for just the weekend because it’s you’d lose a lot of the day on the train.
