Welcome to my special week of Cornish diary entries. This week I’m on holiday here, so I hope to give you a new entry every day. Today was our sixth and penultimate day, and a visit to the Range with a swim at Porthpean Beach…
Thursday 11th August 2016
Today was a super busy day! I woke up to an alarm for the first time in days, and it went off at 7.30am, and again at 7.45am and finally I was up at 8am. I got ready for the day and we headed out early for a walk into Charlestown.
We arrived there at about 10am and the weather was really lovely and sunny, with barely any breeze at all. We had a look round some of the shops and I saw these amazing necklaces… contemplating getting one but I don’t know what to do!
We then walked down to the harbour and sat on the wall for a while, and the sun was so nice I got some really nice pictures of the glistening sea.
After a while we headed back up to the house and were back by just past 11am. We had a quick sit down before heading out again. We had seen an advertisement for a car boot with a massive The Range next to it, so my dad was going into the boot whilst me and my mom had a good look around the Range.
Well I managed to get an amazing Winnie the Pooh scrapbooking paper pack for £10 – 150 pages and I absolutely love Pooh! So I was really pleased with that. After about 45 minutes we headed back to meet my dad and back to the house.
We got changed quickly into our swimwear, and then had a walk down to Porthpean Beach to have a swim in the sea. The beach was super busy – a sharp contrast from yesterday when we went at about 5pm and it was empty! We got a space over near the cliff.
My dad sunbathed on the beach whilst we got in the sea. I could barely feel the cold in my wetsuit until I got half way in. The water was a really disgusting colour, too! Pure brown… So we didn’t stay in very long! We had a walk up and down the beach to dry off and then headed back home.
Once home I had a quick shower and got changed and we walked into St Austell. It took about 45 minutes and we headed to the cinema, where I finally got to see Finding Dory – it was so, so good! Really funny.
After that, my dad picked us up from there at 7.30pm and we drove into Charlestown for dinner at Wreckers on the harbour. It was a really nice seafood dinner – I had battered monk fish ceasar salad – different but so tasty.
So tomorrow’s our last day… waaah!
