A Full Cornish and Wild Seas

25 Dec

Full Cornish breakfasts were on offer for anyone who wanted to turn up this Christmas morning at Gweal An Top in Redruth. There were lots of volunteers cooking, serving and washing up. A full Cornish breakfast has – eggs, bacon and sausages, fried bread and beans, mushrooms and tomato, fried potato and Hog’s Pudding, a Cornish speciality – an amazing spread! What a kind and beautiful thing to do for people who are perhaps alone or those for whom a Christmas dinner is not on the menu. Well done to the organisers and all the lovely volunteers.

A Christmas Day tradition for our family and many others is to go to the beach on Christmas Day, whatever the weather and so we did in wild, wild winds! A number of my dear friends are among those for whom the tradition is to swim in the sea on Christmas Day! Some of them were off to Carbis Bay to swim today but I haven’t yet heard how they got on.

    I would hesitate to swim in the “wild seas”…

    The full Cornish sounds very similar to the full ‘Irish’ and the full ‘English’ breakfasts we’ve had. The only difference seems to be the black and white pudding that these two versions serve.

    Sure beats my dish of cold soggy cereal. 🙁

      They were enormous breakfasts! We were offered one too but they were over facing! The people who came in were very glad of such a monster meal though! 🙂

        Yes, a very generous offer.

    What a beautiful sea picture. It would make a great poster.
