St Ives

It's starting to get a bit lighter here and there are the first signs of winter starting to loose its grip. I love winter but I also love our changing seasons and the blue skies we've seen over the last few days are making me think about our annual week in St Ives Cornwall (not for a while yet but it's good to have it to look forward to!). For anyone who hasn't been to St. Ives it is a fantastic place to visit. Lots of beaches (some more suitable for surfing and some more suitable for little kids) all wrapped round a town full of higgledy-piggledy houses and cobbled streets.
Then there's the art connection - lots of artists with work exhibited everywhere you turn. Louise McClary , Michael Rees and last year I found a ceramicist I really liked in the wonderful St Ives Printmakers Gallery. Traces of Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Alfred Wallis etc everywhere you turn and the fabby Tate St Ives right on the beach.
