A Cornish Adventure

March 1, 2011

As I type this, I am sitting in in the dining room of The Observatory Guest House in Falmouth. Having left home on Thursday, the plan was to stay over the weekend, visiting the university open day on Saturday and leaving Cornwall on Sunday. I type this on tuesday, our car having “broken the head gasket” and in need of “pitting”…or whatever. So its become an extended trip.

The open day at the uni campus in Tremough was well worth the stay though, and I had my first interview on Friday. Having the tour blew my mind – the facilities are AMAZING! lazer cutters, kilns, wheels, Plaster rooms, looms, …..enough toys and gadgets to keep me occupied for the next few years, should I be lucky enough to get a place here. The accommodation is brilliant too, with massive en-suites, a desk, double bed… the only thing is whether I’d have enough wardrobe space…!

I’ve been shopping around town a little too, and there’s loads of little quirky boutiques, surf shops and tea houses. The hotel (which is beautiful and with amazing service from Heidi and Paul and the best full English I’ve had in a long time) is a lovely 10 minute walk from Swanpoole Beach, a small cove with a restaurant and water sports centre.  I managed to bring along the Nikon for a spot of filming and some photography and the views were amazing.

A pretty nice trip and unfortunatly, due to the breakdown, we didn’t make it to St Ives or Truro, but it does look as though I might be coming back…:)
