  1. The ice cream you described at the beginning is so tasty when I imagine I’m eating it! I really like the way you write. I wonder, have you ever thought about writing a book/novel/short story, or some sort of literature? Also your husband sounds playful and fun to travel with 😉

    1. Hahaha he is a hoot but he can be such a kid. I thought it was only me who could let the inner peskiness out but he overtakes me by far now. Thank you Jen that is a lovely thought of yours. I have been working on a book but I fall lazy and then blogging takes away a lot of time too. I should get back to it more seriously! I say go and treat yourself to a lovely ice cream this weekend 😉 xx


  2. I adore Doc Martin, so it was lovely to stroll round Port Wenn (Isaac) with you. I’d have had Pizza and Cream Tea and Ice Cream by the way. But I am just a walking disgrace ? xx

    1. Isn’t it adorable? Elaine cracks me up. I am aiming for pizza tonight after the apartment having been packed and carted away by the movers. The boy just won’t take no for an answer 😉 I love the ‘walking disgrace’ that is Osyth and I might just join her if she doth not protest much xx

  3. Another beautiful little village! I’ve missed reading your posts! I love that Adi grabbed some icecream without you, how did he think he could get away with that? XD
    I also hope you sang along with him atop those cliffs, even it was for a little bit 😀


  4. Cow’s can drink up to 90litres!! Did not know that. Also can i just mention it’s 10pm here in Kenya and now you made me crave for ice cream but am too lazy to get out to find some ?. As usual i enjoyed this post.

      1. I have never been there… yet ! 😉 But visiting UK is definitely on my list ! I have only been to London, Cambridge and Oxford and I know there are ‘heaps’ (once an Aussie, still an Aussie 😉 ) of amazing landscapes to see there ! 🙂

  5. Oh man, there are too many things to say about this post. First of all, the sneaky ice cream eating–hilarious, by the way–that is grounds for a swift kick in the pants 😛 Though you probably played it better with your own trip to the fudge shop for an ice cream cone that looks nothing less than heavenly. Then of course I can’t not say how gorgeous Port Isaac looks. And the dog–I have a soft spot for hounds with droopy eyes and big bellowing bays ❤ And lastly, love the 'enry 'iggins reference. Now I will be humming My Fair Lady all day 🙂

    1. Now all of those observations made me smile! I promise I had the better ice cream, creamier and more delicious, in the bargain. I was kind though and allowed an avaricious Adi a few bites. That dog is one of the cutest woofs I have set my eyes on for a long time. I am a sucker for personality and he had oodles of it. You surely would have made a beeline for him while singing…which would you be humming, my fair lady? 😀

  6. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for novice blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.|


      1. My heart is definitely in New York/ New Jersey! However, my son now lives near us in Dallas with his lovely girl friend – so my heart is here too! I try to get back to NYC a few times a year, but it isn’t all that handy. There is so much I love about that area. Culture, art, history, trees, hills, beach….

      2. I shall start updating myself slowly about all those aspects, Diane. It will take time but I shall get there 🙂 Dallas would be interesting plus if you have your son and his partner there, it makes quite so special xx
