Thankfully, in the weeks prior to these April downpours, we’ve seen some sterling spring weather here in Cornwall. So me and my little family have been busy getting out and about to our favourite beaches, gardens and outdoor attractions. We’ve even been to our first festival of the season.
For me, the months of April through to June are the most magical times to explore the wonders of Cornwall. Bluebells carpet the woods, yellow gorse flowers line the coast paths and the ocean is thawing and once again teeming with marine life. We’ve been out on boards, bikes and on foot, with fishing nets, kites and picnic blankets.
