Matt arrived home to me at 10 pm sat night after a complicated afternoon with his kids and more to the point (ex) wife.
When he got home we decided to pack the truck and go to Cornwall! Brilliant!
We stuffed stuff in the truck, clothes, wash stuff, duvets and Music, coffee and food and left.
We drove through the night and arrived on Polzeath beach at 5 am, the sky was light and the tide was right in. We drove onto the beach and I, in my childlike excitement, bounced out of the truck and ran full pelt into the sea :D YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!
Then realised a) it was cold b) my DC's were soaked along with my trousers, knickers and socks and c) We needed to get some sleep! So I took of my wet clothes and we drove up onto the cliff top, parked up, made a bed in the back of the pick up curled up together, watched the ocean sparkling then cuddled up and slept for 4/5 hours.
I woke up and listened to Matt being awake, I could feel him watching the ocean and being ridiculously happy. He opened the back of the truck up properly and I Sat up next to him cuddled up in the duvet watching the ocean, the cliffs, the seagulls, the surfers and the sun playing among the waves. It was divine. What a way to spend a lazy sunday morning after having driven through the night!!!
We got up and out of the truck at 12 ish, i went to get washed and when I got back Matt was bouncing waiting ready to go down the cliffs to the sea :D I followed him down with the camera and found him stripped to his pants in the sea. Proper clear, clean gorgeous atlantic waves.
When he came out we sat on the rocks with the sea wrapping itself around our feet and we ate brie, dates and nachos for breakfast with the rest of our cold coffee. Perfect!
We stayed together on the rocks for 4 hours in the end just 'being' with each other and with the ocean. Feeling a beautiful oneness with nature and with ourselves and with each other. Utterly spiritual in it's beauty. I know it all sounds so cliche but the cliches are cliches for a damn good reason!
We walked into the village, drank tea by the carpark, walked over the beach and brought great coffee then went to find pistachio icecream which we took onto the beach to eat walking through the baby breaks of the waves on the shore. After me having a piggy back across the mid beach stream we went back up and sat on the rocks again. After an annoying interruption from Matts (ex) wife on the phone I got a bit defensive and a bit distant and cross so I walked up to the toilets and met Matt at the truck. To his full credit he let me tell him how pissed off I was, told me not to cry and told me to get it out of my head. It's not always that easy to get out of those silly emotional trips though...
We had both taken a piece of moonstone to recharge in the ocean and Matt said we shouldn't just let the sea wash over the stones we should generate more energy by jumping into the sea with our stones :/ ... Still a bit pissed off I could see where this was going and knew it would be good so we did it :)
It was amazing! (god i use that word sooo much lately...) It was freezing but we were together holding each other totally exhilarated. Suddenly Matt said we should so be naked doing this and I agreed so we pulled our wet clothes off while we were still in the sea and chucked them onto the rocks. We were in an alcove away from the main beach stood in a deep rock pool with the waves rushing in at us through a funnel neck in the rocks and sucking us out when the waves retreated. The power was just phenomenal! We had to hold onto each other and the rocks to keep ourselves from being dashed about! Unbelievably powerful and cleansing-like a natural and pagan baptism if you can get that...
We lay naked on the rocks for an hour after that together just being one, with nature and each other. Bliss. Like there was nothing but us at that time, no past no future no trappings just us and the earth.
We visited my close close friends an old couple called Eddie and Nora on our way home in their farm, arriving unannounced as I always do and that was gorgeous too.
We shared driving home and arrived home around 2.30 am.
What a gorgeous and perfect way to spend 24 hours!
