Hey Bella, what clever daughters we've got eh?  Obviously doing it for the girls big time and mostly taking after their Mums surely if the truth be known. lol  biggrin  Congratulations to your gorgeous daughter, they're definitely stunning beauties too with loads of intelligence, (both of them), is the dark one the eldest? Let's hope they all have an exciting and interesting life ahead as they embark on their next big adventure.

What a coincidence, I came up to Cardiff with my eldest daughter for an interview 2 years ago and she loved it, brilliant Uni with fantastic sports facilities, but sadly she didn't get her grades that year.  She's away working in Canada again for the summer as a sort of au pair teaching 3 young girls watersports, so we're not sure if she will be taking up her Uni place in Bedford or Chichester.  Here she is doing what she loves best; surfing and water-ski-ing.   Hoping to hear from her tomorrow, miss her dreadfully. 

Just think Bella, reckon we'd have a load of fun together on a trip to Cornwall - we'll have to organise a forum expedition!!

Speaking about being from Cornwall, I have exciting news which I'm busting to shout out loud .......... my little baby (well actually 18 yr old now) has just passed her 'A levels with an A and 2 B grades and has had her place to study Journalism at Falmouth University, Cornwall confirmed .........   YAY!!!! .... so we'll be off to down there to visit her just as often as we can  whilst she's there for the 3 year course.  The uni does private accommodation for visitors, so we won't cramp her style, probably take her shopping to stock her up on food and supplies, take her out for a meal and then do our own thing exploring our favourite places on the north Cornish coast, just 25 mins drive to the north coast from the Uni.  Just one little fly in the ointment is that it's a deferred place for Sept 2011, as she's taking a year out to travel Australia, NZ and Bali with her boyfriend - so life map all sorted and the world's her oyster - how wonderful to be 18 again with all those exciting adventures awaiting to be explored.

All I can say is watch out Falmouth, blonde, beautiful, bubbly and brainy babe coming your way soon!  Can't help being a very proud Mum, she's the sunshine of my heart!  sun.gifheart.gif

What a wonderful thing to be actually from the area! I have always wanted to visit Cornwall since I discovered Poldark at 12. I am still planning that trip and now I'm 47. I live in NJ and I love the shore. New Jersey beaches in the good ol' USA do not have cliffs but once in a while you might find a jetty where you can spot the waves hit against the rock or sit and feel the ocean spray.

Great to have you aboard! I am relatively new to this site as well.

Sincerely
RDP5

Sending you a big warm welcome to the forum Sejourneur, so glad you discovered the fabulous Poldark books written by the amazing Winston Graham which led you to find us.  Have you had a chance to watch the TV series yet on DVD or Youtube?  Lovely to have you on board, hope you enjoy taking part in the chats about anything remotely Poldark related.  Enjoy!!

Greetings, my first post here to introduce myself as yet another newbie who's recently discovered Winston Graham, Poldark and, now, this web site.

When the Poldark series were being shown on BBC, I was too busy with serious illness in the family to sit down and watch TV. My parents loved it and so I heard about it at second hand.

Very recently, I've discovered some of the Poldark books on audiobook. That has been a wonderful discovery and has led me to look up Winston Graham for the first time.

As a West Countryman myself, I feel an affinity with Cornwall despite being from the "wrong" side of the Tamar!
