I’ve already written about where and how we camped during our trip to Padstow. I thought I’d write a final post about what we got up to whilst we were there. As you can see from the photo on the right, we didn’t have a very good idea of what we would do, so we just chucked a ton of stuff into the van and set off. I always like doing this as you can just decide what to…

  Falmouth Tallships doesn’t happen very often so I definitely think it’s always worth checking out every few years when it’s in town. I’m not the only person who feels this way as this year saw around 70,000 people go to Falmouth Docks to peer at the ships. Even more impressive than this, the total visitor numbers across Falmouth have been estimated at more than 200,000 over the weekend! Sam, our friends and I made our way into town on…

  I don’t want to jinx it but overall we’ve had a really, fantastically sunny summer so far. It was with this in mind that I decided to treat myself to a new pair of Maui Jim Coconuts Sunglasses this week. When I was making up my mind whether to get them or not, I couldn’t find many reviews so I thought I’d resolve that problem by writing one of my own; here are my first impressions:   Cases are…

  This week I’ve been indulging in the most primitive of coastal pastimes, skimming stones. It’s one of those brilliant activities that everyone and their dad is a professional at. My girlfriend and I went down to a beach on the south coast when the sea was mighty flat and practiced our skills. Everybody has an opinion on the two main skimming elements: Stone choice and throwing technique. I’m definitely of the “get low to the ground and chuck it…

  In Greek Mythology, Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian Gods (and little brother to Zeus). He is ruler of the ocean and is called the “God of the Sea”. Poseidon is usually depicted as an old, angry man with curly hair, a beard, carrying a mega pointy trident. I’ve always thought that Poseidon has a bit of an image problem. The most recent time he updated his wardrobe was a couple of thousand years BC! Looking all grumpy…

  The 6 Nations have been making my weekends recently and as you can see from the highlights below the England vs Ireland game on Saturday wasn’t an exception… When it comes to watching the rugby with friends down the pub, normally clothing choices are pretty straightforward and a white shirt with a red rose on it usually does the trick. Sometimes however it’s nice to mix it up and that’s where Raging Bull clothing comes in. Raging Bull was…

  Cornish people are obsessed with the weather, I think it’s because the weather varies so much down here. It goes from super hot, pretty much tropical summers to torrential rain and stormy winters. For January and February unfortunately it’s only been the latter. Inspired by the constant discussion about the weather I decided to purchase this awesome T shirt from 8 Ball.   If for some reason you’ve managed to miss the near constant stormy weather, I’ve been kind…
