This week’s Weekly Challenge is ‘Nostalgic‘, which for me, brings to mind the best places I have been to, and the suprising little secrets they hold. They say the past is another country, but for me it’s also an island – isolated perhaps by the rose-tinted glasses we wear when we look back – but also untainted because of the good memories we hold, particularly when it comes to places which change (or don’t!) as time goes on.
One of these places is undoubtably the wonderful Cornwall, which I visited with my family a couple of years ago, and which I have never forgotten. (One of) the most memorably places which we visited was St Michael’s Mount, which was a small island that has a long path to walk along to get there – but you have to be quick, otherwise the tide comes in on the way back! I think everyone’s favourite memory that day was dashing along the path in the evening, holding their pants/dress/shoes up and splashing their way back to the shore, before we could get stranded (and would have to take the boat back).
We didn’t get to explore the island for long, because we arrived mid-day and only managed to walk around for an hour or so, but it’s definitely on my to-visit list when we come back – this time we’ll bring wellies and a paddling boat!
