Today, on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year so far, we went to see St. Nectan's Glen, between Tintagel and Boscastle. It's a place we've wanted to visit for a while and despite it being about an hour and half away it was so worth it!
We had a quick lunch, in the company of a surprisingly bold robin who even attempted to snack on another diners sandwich straight from her plate and then descended the steps into the valley below.
Wow! I did not expect to see what we saw!

Lucy and I were feeling bad because there were other children enjoying the stream, either wearing wellies or just barefeet. I was worried that Isaac would want to sit down in the stream like he does in the sea, which probably would've been ok except we only had an emergency nappy with us and no wrap to put around it. But we had his wellies and in the end Lucy convinced me to give it a try.
Lesson for the day, sometimes it's good to try and say yes, even if you're not sure it will work. He loved it, so much so that he didn't want to leave.
It must've been such a challenge for him, but he tackled it with the same determination and persistence we see so much from him.
This evening Isaac's photo taking continued; I now have a lot of great photos of Isaac's toys on my phone, and they're all better than the photo's I take...
