Cornwall has the longest stretch of coastline in the whole of the UK. As a county, it’s bordered by beach and surrounded by sea and people come from far and wide to get a slice of its seaside culture. Falmouth in particular is said to be one of the UK’s finest natural harbours and is a massive hotspot for sailing.
With the weather being as perfect as it was, my family and I decided to jump on the boat and embark on a voyage to Falmouth. It’s incredibly peaceful being out on the water on a tranquil sunny day, switching off the engine and letting the fresh sea air fill the sails – I just love it.
Being out on the water is a great opportunity to do a spot of fishing. Falmouth happens to be one of the best coastal spots for fishing in the UK. I hooked my first ever catch of three mackerel in one go. Dinner sorted!
We ended up catching a decent haul of mackerel which we later stuck on the BBQ. There’s nothing like eating fresh fish that you have caught yourself.
