Perranporth Beach

Perranporth-Beach The first stop of the holiday in Cornwall, Perranporth Beach. Just a few other people around and about, so really it felt like we had the broad expanse of sands to ourselves. Past Chapel Rock and the stream of water that runs across the sands we walked towards the shoreline and took in the wonderful coastal views.

Magical Cornish coastline that conjures up dreams and then reclaims them as the tide does the sand. Walking-on-the-beach My little boy felt free and ran around, turning to me every now and then to make sure he hadn't strayed too far. Splashing in the pools of water and the beautiful clear sea. Cornish-beach  A breezy day and both sand particles and kites danced about mirroring my boy on the beach.kite beach-boy We looked in rock pools and picked up slimy seaweed. Lots of stamping and splashing. So great to breathe in the marine air and taste the salt. seaweed The beach is popular with surfers and we watched them out in the sea on the breaking waves.
Perranporth was also the home of the author Winston Graham, who is responsible for books that inspired the current popular series that everyone is raving about. This is Poldark country and you can see why, with all the old mines, smuggler's coves and romantic landscapes.

Blue skies and sunshine had renewed all our spirits after what was a very long journey from Cheshire and it was back to the caravan to plan the next day......surfer-at-Perranporth

Perranporth is a lovely place to spend the day, you picked a great day to explore it as well. It's great to see your son running around enjoying the fresh Cornish air and the great expanse of sand. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.

Wow what a stunning beach - I am pretty sure I visited this beach as a child. Cornwall is so far away from us but I would love to re-visit with my children one day x
