I'm trying to be honest because when you've been together as long as we have (eighteen years! And married for thirteen!) people assume everything is fine, and honestly, long term relationships can really be a struggle.
Anyway, I took a few photos in St Ives because it is a really beautiful place. We didn't see much of it, but we did have a nice lunch on the harbour. We ended up parking in a park and ride which was really useful, I would recommend it if you go to St Ives because parking in the town is limited.
In the evening we went back to Porthoustock beach for a barbecue. We paddled a bit again and considered going swimming, but the sun was falling rapidly behind the headland and I didn't want to get out of the water and be cold while the barbecue was cooking. I ended up a bit chilly anyway, so I think that was the right decision.
We had a simple barbecue - burgers for me, a chicken something for Lee, a couple of salads, and breadsticks and dips. It was really lovely - I haven't barbecued on the beach since I was really small, and Lee doesn't think he ever has! There were a few people swimming or paddleboarding, so lots of things to watch.

The harbour - the sea is such a gorgeous colour here!
I would have loved to swim here
There were tons of these little boats for hire in the harbour
I had this amazing Greek salad!
