holidays remembered

A rather boring looking flat roofed building, but this is where I spent many summer and winter holidays as a child. It is at the far end of Kennack Sands, nestled into the hillside. I used to get so excited as we arrived, having driven from Sussex after getting up very early in the morning. Past Goonhilly and then we were nearly there, Kuggar, down a rough track and there it was, all windswept and scrummy. My main interest, aged 9 - 13 ish ish, was looking at and collecting stones, little bits of amethyst, studying the serpentine. I was a strange child! I loved the sea as well, so wasn't totally weird.
