Hello everyone, I hope you all had a gorgeous weekend whatever you got up to. I'm excited to share a little photo diary of our weekend in St Ives a few weeks back. But firstly I must admit that I'm a little gutted with these photographs and how they turned out. See, my trusty film camera seems to be on it's way out which is SUCH a shame as these cameras aren't fixable (damn it!) but fear not, I have another one on the way, or at least I will do if I win the listing on eBay, fingers crossed ey!
But despite the focus on these photos not being quite tip top, I still wanted to share them in the hope that they might inspire you to go for a little staycation this summer. St Ives has been high on my hit list for quite some time and having visited for an afternoon in October last year I knew I wanted to return when things heated up a little bit.
We headed down for my birthday weekend with George's mum and dad to visit George's Auntie and Uncle and of course brought our pals Amy and Rob along with us. It was such a special weekend, a weekend literally spent belly laughing which is always good for the soul. What is also good for the soul is sunshine, and St Ives provided us with sunshine by the shed load with highs of 30 degrees, heavenly or what!
The famous Banana-colada at Rum & Crab Shack, It was utterly delicious but rather large so a little sickly towards the end! Thanks to everyone who recommended this place, we all loved it and I would now HIGHLY suggest heading here for a relaxed bite to eat, the food is comfort food at it's finest mostly centred around, you guessed it... CRAB!
We visited two gorgeous cafe's for brunch across our weekend in St Ives the one pictured above was Scoff Troff and I'm still dreaming of their crab rarebit now! It was utterly sensational and something I'm desperate to try out a home. I would totally suggest having this place high on your hit list whilst on your travels to the beautiful seaside town of St Ives. Another was The Cornish Deli, which was super cute and quaint and served up some delicious brunch whilst also having an adorable deli to the front of the shop.
The boys (especially Rob) were obsessed with getting in the water. On numerous occasions we proclaimed how we couldn't believe how clear and how blue the water was, it was like something you'd see in Italy, honestly! As I've already said we were so lucky with the weather and the boys really did take full advantage.
For our final day in St Ives we took to one of the many beautiful beaches and had a little beach BBQ. Whilst the weather wasn't quite as glorious as the day before it was still warm enough to lounge about on the beach chatting, having a couple of bevs, playing bat & ball and eating all the BBQ food. It was honestly one of the happiest care free days ever, a day I'll treasure forever and ever.
So that's it, a little photo diary of our weekend in St Ives, it was a truly glorious weekend and the perfect way to spend my birthday weekend. I would whole heartedly recommend a weekend in St Ives. With just a 45 minute plane journey from Manchester it really is a no brainer, particularly as it's one of the most beautiful parts of the UK that I've ever seen.
Until next time St Ives we will most definitely be back.
