Sunny day, While away the afternoon

Boscastle

Before I left the South West for good, I knew I had to visit Boscastle one last time. Situated in North Cornwall, it's home to the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic which I visited last year and is how I discovered Boscastle. I've visited a lot of the UK throughout my lifetime and lived in more places than I can count on both hands, and I can honestly say that Boscastle is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It's truly breathtaking, and no amount of photos can ever do it justice.

I didn't visit the museum this time, I just traveled for the view. It's only a few miles down the road from St Nectans Glen, so it provided the perfect lunch spot! It was the most beautifully sunny day as you can see.

There's a really great gemstone and crystal shop called 'Boscastle Rocks' which I was sure to pop in to. I've always had a huge interest in crystals and have a modest collection - my parents used to own their own gemstone shop which I used to help out at as a teen so it's something I've always been well immersed in, and you may have noticed my numerous gemstone rings adorning my fingers in every outfit post! I'm a big believer in letting a crystal choose you, which means just taking notice of which piece you're particularly drawn to rather than focusing on what's prettiest. On my last visit to Boscastle I bought a smokey quartz and citrine necklace which I'm so attached to I've barely taken it off since, and this visit I couldn't stop admiring the above purple and green ring. A ring is honestly the last thing I need more of, but it fit so well it felt like fate and it had to be mine. It's Atlantisite which I hadn't previously heard of before, but its properties fit me to an absolute tee.

  1. All I know about Bocastle is the dreadful flooding a few years ago. It looks lovely.
    I love your new ring and agree with you, the stones seem to make themselves known to us - I'm always attracted to turquoise (my birthstone) but your new ring is stunning. x

    1. Thank you. I'm quite partial to turquoise myself and own a few pieces including the other ring in the photo, it really is a lovely stone! My birthstone is moonstone, which I'm also naturally attracted to so I do think there's some truth to it all.

  2. I can see why this is one of your favorite places, the view is just stunning!! I had a bit of a gemstone collection when I was younger, I definitely agree that some of them just draw you in :)

  3. That's a lovely place, I can see why you'd want to visit it again.

    I'm drawn to jewellery in general, though it's possible my gemstone may be tacky diamante ;-)
