Cornwall is not just for Christmas

SOH and I are in Cornwall, having a good time visiting relatives and friends and meeting the family and swapping presents. The weather is bitterly cold and the wind cuts straight through and you really need to have big coats and scarves on.

We have a lack of internet connection in our little cottage, a miners cottage in Helston but very pretty. We were greeted with a gift from the owner which was a little chocolate tree and a decorated plate which is a great memento of our stay.

We met up with Sally-Ann from Cornwall-by-the-Sea blog, together with Mike her husband and had a chat over a cup of coffee in the local pub. It was nice to meet them in person, and they were kind enough to offer us access to the internet if we needed it, but this is being done from SOH's neices internet connection.

It has been a good stay and we have a couple more days before we go home, but we have more to do and people to see.
