Fish and Chips at Looe
On our recent long weekend away down in Cornwall, we wanted to take the girls down to the beach and enjoy a fish and chip supper on the seafront. The closest seaside town to where we were staying was Looe, which is a lovely fishing town. It is divided into two by the River Looe which flows through it and into the sea.
We walked down towards the beach, passing the fishing boats and shops selling freshly caught fish and seafood. With the weather bine variable that day, the beach was understandably quiet, with a few people making the most of the space there to enjoy a ball game.
The girls were keen to get down on to the beach and play with the sand. Emily has only been on a sandy beach once before. This time she was so much older and excitedly dug in the sand with her hands and made patterns in it.
Unfortunately, the skies turned darker and another shower was imminent, so rather than sitting on the seafront, we headed back towards the town and found a fish and chip shop, with a restaurant. Here we were able to take shelter from the rain whilst enjoying fish and chips (or fish fingers and chips as the girls had). It wasn’t quite the same as eating them outside in the sea air, listening to the sound of waves crashing on a beach whilst keeping an eye out for hungry seagulls, but it was still fish and chips at the seaside. Here’s hoping that on our next trip down to Cornwall, the weather will be kinder!
