This weekend my friend and I decided to go on a bit of a road trip over to the Roseland Peninsula. We didn’t know where exactly we were going but we were in search of a new and successful bass fishing location. With rods, lures and a trusty map packed, we set off. We decided to take the short cut and go via the legendary King Harry Ferry, cutting out about 20 miles of faffing about through Truro. I…

  One of the perks of running a site like Wild Tide is getting invited to cool events and shindigs. I’m not always able to attend them but when I was asked to the launch party of the new Stable restaurant in Falmouth, I couldn’t say no. I’d been to their last opening event at Fistral Beach in Newquay, which was great, but the Falmouth opening was even better (and not just because of the free bar) The photograph below…

  This is an article all about my new Sleepy. I’m not going to beat about the bush, the Sleepy is a funny thing, there is no denying it does make you look like a teletubbie, It is however still brilliantly fun and great for people like me.   So what is it? Well a Sleepy or SLPY is quite simply a sleeping bag with arm and leg holes! Why? Because it’s fun, cool and useful! Let’s face it, as…

  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…

  I’ve had a mad couple of weeks at work, which has resulted in not a lot of blogging and not a lot of fun. It’s been worth it though as I’ve managed to secure a better position and have got through it all now. To celebrate the frantic fortnight being over, I bought myself a new watch and my girlfriend and I popped into Truro for lunch. The watch I bought was this new Swatch watch called Black Ghost…

  A couple weeks ago my girlfriend and I went on a lush little wander down to a very cool and lesser known Cornish beach. It’s off the beaten track and is one of my favourite beaches, especially in summer as it’s not known by tourists and locals alike. There is no car park, you simply park up on a country road and walk down what looks like someones drive until you see a small woodland path. From the top…

  I’ve just been packing for a couple nights away and thought I’d pop on here and write a quick post (mainly to brag) about my new Fjall Raven duffel bag. It’s made from their waxed fabric, called G-1000, which is mega strong and will definitely last me years. It’s straps are made from a really high quality and natural coloured leather. The way their made means you can carry it in your hand, over your shoulder or like a…
