One of the best things about the house we are staying in here in Cornwall, apart from the steam room and hot tub, is the fact that the living room has sea views in three directions. It's simply stunning to sit here looking out to sea, even if the weather has been a bit dodgy - as I sit here typing there's a storm brewing, and the rain is lashing against the windows. It's quite dramatic.
We've had some fun over the last few days. There have been some flashpoints with the kids, but that's par for the course. Nothing too destructive or dramatic. Yesterday my brother Arthur and his family, who are holidaying in Looe, came over for the afternoon and stayed for dinner. It was a fun time, even though their youngest found RTL a bit scary.
The hot tub here is great. It's a Japanese style version without bubbles, made out of a barrel-like wooden construction. Very relaxing, and an ideal Champagne moment.
