Hey fellas! For today's post I thought I'd share with you some snaps from St Ives, the place that encouraged me to shout 'I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS THE UK' at least seven times a day. I've been to Penzance before (you can have a read of the guide here if you missed it) but, as much as I loved it, it was March and the weather wasn't fantastic, so this is the first time I've seen Cornwall in all its turquoise-sea'd glory. We were down there for Meggy's birthday so I was in holiday mode and didn't capture as many guide-style photos as I normally would, but I thought it'd be worth sharing some snaps along with a wee round-up of the places we stopped! 

We flew from Manchester to Newquay (a short forty minute flight with incredible views) and from there it's about an hour's drive to St Ives. There were six of us altogether so we booked into this Airbnb here which I couldn't recommend more; it was in a great location and had the most beautiful views across the harbour (again cue spontaneous, 'I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS THE UK' comments). Over the course of the weekend we filled our bellies with some wonderful food in the form of:
- Burgers and gluten free (!) fish and chips at Hub
- An insanely good brunch at Scoff Trough
- Cocktails and seafood dishes a-plenty at Rum & Crab Shack
- A big, hearty brunch at The Cornish Deli which has a really welcoming, homely feel to it as well as a deli in the front where you can buy local produce (chocolate and teabags for me)
- A morning-of-the-airport run to St Ives Bakery for Cornish pasties
- Delicious ice cream at Moomaid

There were a few recommendations that kept popping up, like Porthmeor beach cafe, that we didn't get a chance to try so I'm taking that very seriously as instruction to go back.
