St Ives Holidays in hand drawn postcards

This was back in August 2016, but since this blog is only couple of weeks old, it may  just as well be ‘fatten up’ on some past (but not ancient) material.

I started to carry blank postcards with me in my backpack last year, and I love it! You can catch the memento and post a quick hello to a friend anytime. Even my children started to join me in drawing them, when we are on a walk or a day trip. Most of these end up in a pile on our shelf, but some made it to other people’s postboxes and even walls!

Here is a little glimpse of our family holidays in St Ives, Cornwall (where my husband is from).

St Ives
First day – rain. View from the top room in my parents-in-law’s house
Lamorna Cove coastal path. Our oldest’ second name is Lamorna – we had to visit this place…
Porthmeor beach – the best beach in the world.
G and D on the beach. Watercolours and Spectrum Aqua pens.
My husband’s sister requested a postard with all our children in it – here she got it. Marazion, near Penzance.
D at Tintagel Castle, on a bench, devoted to beloved sister Maureen.
Daughter S reading. Godrevy.
Daughter G on Porthmeor beach. Last day of holidays.
Husband B near Man’s Head, St Ives.
