It was one of those days, the sun shone and you drift down to the Harbour side, I even packed a picnic! We settled down with our sandwiches and salads only to see our friends up the beach, then more. Friends left kids with us to stay and play, some went off shopping with calls of will you still be here when we get back? It was one of those lovely Cornish days when you realise you know so many people, we all go to the same places and we all meet up with no plans too. It was one of those days where the beach calls abd we all gather. I cant tell you how stunning our little town looked today, how pretty the sea and how happy the children were. We went home with leggings rolled up to the knees soaking wet and sand caked to our feet. It feels good to be back, it wont be long before this is commonplace. I cant wait!
The rest of our day was filled with Tennis and Art. We go to one of the few places where the courts overlook the sea, its so special. The Art was a community project where we are designing tiles to tile our Harbour front. I hope we will have a little piece of history in our town forever.
So many little events happen here and I try to involve the children as much as possible. Unfortunately some happen during school time now, so those days are gone, following the Cornish Music through the town while children dance. I hate the fact that they miss this, its so important, but they do. But things that happen at weekends we embrace and get involved. I want them to grow up here loving the town as we do and feeling a part of it.
