A very early morning rise just so we don’t lose much of the day travelling all the way to Cornwall.
Paddington Station had re-opened and we’re some of the first passengers yesterday morning, heading out of London for the weekend. It was going to be a long journey – more than five hours to get to Newquay from London.All along the way, the fog hung low as the sun crept up into the sky.
Instead, I looked at Mummy questioningly and she tells me, “No, not yet. Two more hours till we arrive.”
Two more hours?!?!?!
Finally there’s water in the horizon!We must be near. Indeed we were. We arrived in Newquay and after a short cab ride, thank god, we arrived at our hotel, The Scarlet on Mawgan Porth.Where’s the beach?!?!?! I’m rarin’ to go!C’mon George!
The beach! The beach! We had to go past this little gate And ran down a narrow pathHurry up, Mummy! There’s a beach waiting for usAnd the sun is out!George, don’t you go speaking to strangers!Whoa! There are a lot of strangers on the beach!Let’s run away to playLet’s go into the water!
“I’m afraid of the water, Darcy.” Don’t be. It’s only very shallow here. “Darcy! Come back! A wave is coming!!!“Oh! Oh! Oh!May’s comment: After a long journey we have arrived for our weekend in Cornwall. Staying at The Scarlet – more about this later. Felt immediately at ease, and loving every bit of it. The best part – watching Darcy and George race down the hill and they ran and they ran on the beach – so free, so happy and oh, so loud! Darcy keeps egging George on to play!
Need to get on with the New Year’s Eve program – more later!
