The Start To The Summer Camping, Beach & BBQ

    It’s been an awesome start to the summer. I’ve built up a little collection of photos and anecdotal stuff we’ve been doing so I thought I’d share it on here, cos that’s well what my site’s for! I’m going to try and keep this pretty text light and photo heavy as they paint 1000 words and all that. Don’t be surprised if I ramble on though, it normally happens.   Beach BBQs have literally become a weekly occurrence…

There are two trays made of silicone, making 24 ice cubes in total! You…

Camping, Chapel Porth and The World Bellyboard Championships

  During the summer, we spent numerous occasions on Chapel Porth Beach, west of St Agnes. I love this beach because of its clear waters and dramatic landscape. Due to it being so close to my new home, my girlfriend and I have got into the habit of getting up early to go and have a fry up on this gorgeous beach.
