February's weather was unseasonably warm in this part of the world and reasonably dry so we're seeing early sightings of dolphins and seals. Recent sightings have been recorded at either end of Cornwall in Ramehead and near us here at the 19th acre in Penzance. A map of the best places to see the Seals is located here. There's really nothing quite like catching up with the wildlife of Cornwall in its natural habitat so a 20 minute trip down the coast to Godrevy head in all its glory is well worth a visit.
For those on holiday with us in the cottages Easter is a great time to visit local National Trust properties who do such a wonderful job of entertaining young and old alike. The three nearest are so varied you're bound to find one that fits your need for personal adventure. The first for the industrialists among you is in Redruth at East Pool Mine. East Pool mine is an old mining relic that illustrates how industrial Cornwall was at the turn of the 20th century. The second for the beach lovers among you is at Crantock Beach. Run through the dunes and sand to discover very many Easter bunnies who have generously left eggs dotted around the countryside. Last but by no means least take a walk in the beautiful Trelissick gardens. Savour the flowers and beautiful views of the estuary while finding eggs along the trail.
Whichever one you pick we know that you'll enjoy the company, memories and laughter that you share along the way.
Happy Easter to all from the 19th Acre.
