Beachcombing in Cornwall, Summer Holiday Inspirations

IMG_0308

It’s been a good few years (make that a few decades!) since I last visited Cornwall. After enjoying many family holidays there during my childhood and beyond, I felt it was time to take my own little family on a Cornish adventure!

We stayed a few miles away from the beautiful Sandymouth Beach, near Bude in the north of Cornwall.  This spectacular beach is owned by the National Trust and like many  beaches in Cornwall, is lifeguard patrolled during the summer season.

I love the rugged landscape of Cornwall; Sandymouth Beach has some fantastic rock formations and freshwater streams cascading over the cliffs and flowing down to the sea.

The Little Chick and I had a great time dipping our toes in the sea, followed by some serious wave jumping later on!

We even saw a jellyfish wash in on a wave beside us!

With so many amazing rockpools, we had lots of fun searching for hidden treasures. Look at this incredible sea anemone!

Best of all, I got to indulge in some beachcombing- collecting shells, sea glass and pebbles is one of my favourite holiday pass times!

Now I’m back home and looking forward to getting back into the jewellery workshop. Look out for some beach inspired designs coming very soon!
