Greetings from Cornwall

I am blogging this from Hayle, Cormwall Cornwall (thanks Ummi) right at the South of Britain (well almost). The journey which was supposed to take around five hours took nearly eight hours due to heavy traffic and road repairs. By the time we reached our destination, it was around 9 pm. Thankfully the days are long and there was still light when we reached the site.

BBC weather predicted a sunny day today. However it was overcast almost the whole day.

Today was the first time my son has ever seen the sea. He was really excited and ran towards the water but when the waves rushed in and soaked his feet with cold water, he rushed back towards me and hung on for dear life on legs.

I am able to access the net here, thanks to the 3 mobile broadband service and of course the guys from 3 mobile buzz. I am still testing out the 3 mobile broadband USB modem. Uploading pictures take a while but the surfing speeds are quite satisfactory. Having connection to the net has proven invaluable while checking for tourist attractions nearby.

More updates and pictures tomorrow.

David: It's really nice to get away from it all. But I can't stay away from blogging.

Kenny: It's a really beautiful place.

Ummi: Visited Lands end today morning. However, we were too late to visit St Micheal's island. We did take some pictures from the shore though.

I live near the bay myself, 20 minutes walking, but in comparison to Cornwall our beach looks so plain... I'd wish to see Cornwall one day... it looks both wild and somehow calming... no human presence felt... no human trace... I'd wish to be there...

LOL, no doubt! When you have the power(blogging warrior), the options are limitless. Looks like your family is starting out an early summer vocation. Enjoy and thanks for sharing many interesting photo diaries!
