Here's a 360 degree video clip featuring the sea, the cliffs and our dog.

And for once I'm not talking about a piece of knitting or yarn. I'm talking about landscape. We're extremely lucky to live in Cornwall which has some beautiful landscapes. I've already shown you pics of the moors near were we live. We're also very close to the coast. Our nearest seaside village is about 15 mins away, Looe.

Yesterday we went to a place called Whitsand Bay, near the Rame Peninsula, just west of Plymouth. We haven't been there for years and yesterday we were wondering why. I don't think we've been since before the girls were born and I think the main reason why is steep path down to the beach which would have been totally inpractical when the girls were younger. Yesterday the girls were on a trip with Brownies and Guides.

Simon and I took our dog, Sam, she's a Jack Russell Cross and features in some of the pics. So instead of rabitting on, I'm just going to let the pics do the talking. They're taken on my mobile phone so aren't brilliant but they give you an idea. it was lovely and warm and we did see some people sunbathing. the man in the pic is Simon.

After our wak and the steep climb back up to the park we went for adrive around the coast and stumbled upon a lovely little restaurant along the side of the road called 'The View'. It just looked like an ordinary coffee shop from the outside but inside it was very stylish and the food that was being served looked gorgeous and very posh. We only had Cornish Cream Tea and drinks.

You can see why the restaurant is caled The View. This is the view from my chair.

And here's is one of my scones with a generous helping of cornish clotted cream and jam. I hadn't loaded up the second half of the scone yet. For any foreigners reading this who haven't discovered Cornish Cream Teas yet , they're a must if you ever visit Cornwall. And no other county in Britain do Cream Teas like the Cornish. Devon (our neighbouring county)tries to do their own Devonshire Cream Tea but it's nothing like the Cornish one. Cornish clotted cream is a dream

Oh I am totally homesick seeing this lovely post. This was the beach I spent many a weekend sunbathing on as a teenager. My parents must live close to you - they're just near Trerulefoot. Will have to check out The View one time I'm home.

That beach is so incredible! Must have been such a lovely day.

Would you believe me if I told you I've never tried eating a scone before? From your picture, looks like I'd love it!
