I’ve been loving my summer holiday, It’s been important to me to make sure I’m doing something fun or productive (normally DIY) everyday and because of this, I haven’t had one boring or lazy day. We’ve had some really memorable days including trips to Devon, watching the red arrows from the water and lots and lots of trips to the beach. One of the best days of the summer and probably the entire year had to be last week.…

  Every year Falmouth has it’s annual sailing regatta – Falmouth Week. It’s the largest regatta in the South West and not only does it have races for all sizes of ship but it also has a huge amount of action on shore for landlubbers. The highlight for me has got to be the Red Arrow display over the harbour. They are always spectacular and thrilling to watch but we decided to make it even more of an event by…

  For the last few weeks, I’ve been working flat out on my house and loving it! I’ve had so much help from friends and family and am really grateful. I’ve also had some really awesome house warming presents. This article is about a really cool gift that I was given – a picnic hamper. I’ve always coveted them, especially whenever I’ve seen someone using one. So I was totally stoked to have one of my own!   My girlfriend…

  With the start of the summer sun beating down, I decided to ignore the reports about wind and swell and head to the North Coast in search of an adventurous afternoon and fishing. It’s a short drive to one of my favourite fishing spots on the North Coast of Cornwall: Tubbies Head. This rocky outcrop is located on the cliffs between St Agnes and Porthtowan and, in the right conditions, can present some awesome bass fishing. As I arrived…

  Last week we went for a little paddle around St Michael’s Mount. I’ve not kayaked around it before but was inspired by a friend telling me about his experience kayaking around the mount. So late last Thursday, we drove down to Penzance in the van with a couple Fatyak Kaafus on board to check the mount out for ourselves. We parked up at The Godolphin Arms in Marazion as their carpark was open late, was only £2 and was…

  I hope you all had a fantastic Easter break, I certainly did! When it comes to holidays, I make sure I try and not leave a day spare and ensure that I make the most of my time off. Have you ever had a holiday and when you come back to work and someone asks you what you did and you just don’t really know –it’s depressing! Plan something for every day, that’s my advice, that way your holiday…

  After last weeks post, I thought I’d do it again and put up another quick write up of last week’s highlights. As part of Falmouth Week the Red Arrows came to Falmouth, they did an outstanding display of their aerobatic talents over the harbour. We sat down by the sea wall, legs dangled over the edge with a bottle of beer in one hand and watched the spectacle. As we were watching we wondered, actually how close were they…

  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 has got off to a bit of a lame, rainy start so I thought I would use some of my rainy day today to blog about last week and the adventures I had! I’m pretty busy at the moment and I’m sure nobody wants to read a detailed description of the whole 168 hours, so I’m just going to write a few lines and let you look at lots of photos. At the start of the week…
