On the first day, we went for a little walk, relaxed, and played a bit of croquet (how posh!). I tried to read a chunk of Captain Corelli's Mandolin, seeing as I have to read it for school, but my cousin Zoe came over after I spent half an hour trying to digest the book... I blame my lack of reading progress on Zoe distracting me! I find Falmouth so peaceful and calm - sitting in the garden with a cold glass of coke, good company, and a gorgeous sea view, is my idea of a fabulous holiday!
Living in the Midlands means that you really appreciate the beach! It's such a treat to be able to trot down to the sand and paddle in the crisp shallows. I find that the beach is a great place for talking. You can plonk down on the sand with a pal and natter away for hours.
That pretty much sums up day one in Falmouth!
