The weather forecast was awful. August bank holiday Monday was set to be a washout. Wind and rain would keep everyone indoors. Not the best weather to mark the first full day of our Cornish holiday.
The reality was much better, showing you should never allow a weather forecast to rule your life. Monday dawned as wet as expected, but the middle of the day was much better. True, the afternoon was very rainy, but the evening made up for it. A gloriously sunny vista over Mawgan Porth beach, with magnificent reflections at low tide. A lovely end to the day.
We were lucky to be staying at The Park, Mawgan Porth, with its wonderful indoor pool and cafe-restaurant. While the rain was falling, Owen swam a pool width for the very first time. What a wonderful way to spend a bank holiday!
