the sun came out at tintagel castle!

after three full days of wind, rain and fog, we decided to try our luck with weather and make one stop on our way back to london from cornwall. and…we lucked out.

we rushed to pack up and leave our cottage when we saw the sun had peaked out, and then drove to tintagel castle – a little peninsula speckled with ancient ruins and dusted with legend (they say this spot has significant ties to the story of king arthur). and the sunshine held out! and gave way to a spectacularly beautiful afternoon.

we were all three so happy to have that gorgeous little finishing touch on our cornwall adventure (that had previously felt like a bit of a fail). we saw some stunning scenery on our drive east back to the city.
