Recharging my batteries - 2 day break in Cornwall

Yesterday morning I left the house at 8.30 am and drove all the way to Falmouth in Cornwall. It only takes two hours but I've not been back to Falmouth for years. I decided to go alone as I had a need to recharge my batteries after having spent what has seemed like months and months in my studio in solitude working on lots of new books. My partner and daughter were fine about me going away for 2 days and told me to enjoy myself. I occasionally go to London for meetings but haven't ever gone off like this alone on a mini adventure for years and years. I had a wonderful stimulating time and it was just what I needed. I walked around Falmouth, Penryn and Flushing, looking at new undiscovered streets, cafes, boats, art galleries etc...  It felt so good being somewhere new. I didn't take any work with me and I made a concerted effort not to check emails. I'm now back at home and have made a promise to myself to get away more! Here are some of my snapshots. Some of the coloured houses reminded me of when I lived in Hanover in Brighton - my first terraced house was pink with turquoise window boxes.

Looks great, you look like you had great weather. Haven't been there for years. Sometimes you just have to get away from everything, espacially when your so busy 😃

Glad you had a lovely mini-break! I love Falmouth too and keep looking on Rightmove as I'd love to live there! Jo x

Looks so lovely over there!! I have wanted to visit Cornwall since I first read Rosamunde Pilchers books in the 90s .. Shell seekers, Coming Home and all of her books which mostly take place in that place.
