When I come to the UK, I want to see castles. Castles and coastline, thank you very much. My mother in law laughed when I asked to visit Tintagel while we’re in Cornwall. YES Kay, another castle!
Tintagel castle is wrapped up in the myth of King Arthur.
The site is one of the biggest ruin I’ve ever been to. There are ruins on a few different hill tops, the stairs up to reach them are steep and uneven. Taking a 4 year old and a VERY headstrong 2 year old up these steps? No problem at all!
Callum walked the whole thing. He has amazed me on this trip! There is so much to look at and he is so interested in it all that he doesn’t seem to notice the work he’s doing. We walked around 300 steps (ONE WAY!). It’s no wonder we can’t seem to feed the boys enough these days.
Callum and I left the paved path and went climbing
All Max wants is to watch the water
And up we go
If you want to give this mom a heart attack…this was the place to do it.
Kay, Geoffrey, Callum, Me (Shauna) and Max on my hip
Probably the only 15 seconds I wasn’t clutching onto him while we were on the edge.
Stomp stomp stomp
There was so much to see Callum needed his binoculars
This was, most definitely, one of my very favourite days of the trip so far! How incredible to see these castle ruins on the top of these cliffs, with that stunning ocean view below.
