One of the things I found to be true

in life is that people and experience don't  (usually) let you down, your expectations do.

So, with that in mind, the only thing that really disappointed me on my last trip was the fact that The Museum of Witchcraft was closed.  One of the main reasons I wanted to go to Cornwall was to visit there.  But it is closed for the winter. Very sad frog queen indeed :(

Me, trying not to look too disappointed :(

This is the Christian Tea room directly across from it (also closed) I hear in the town that the two have a bit of a rivalry going on....christian against pagan?  Or just good promotion?  Being the cynical marketing person that I am I bet on the latter.

So, it is closed because it is closed.....not it's fault.  I was only disappointed because I expected it to be open. Maybe next time.

Boscastle is a lovely little town, definitely worth the visit, so even if it is closed, stop by if you are in the area....and have a pint at this pub.

Yes, the frog queen ate at a pub called The Cobweb Inn - yes I did!  Now if it would have been called the spider pub.....well, nah, still would have eaten there.....not because I am courageous mind was the only place open.

I picked up a few things when I was in town for myself....a lovely silver handmade crescent moon necklace with matching earrings.  I told myself on this trip I would not buy myself anything.....but I told husband it was to console me since the museum was closed.

I also picked up a cute touristy thing to give away on my blog.  It is a coaster that says "I would rather be in Boscastle" - I would show you a picture, but I was having camera issues last night.  I will post a picture here over the weekend.  If you want a chance to win, just post a message on this blog post and I will be happy to send it to you.  I will even mail it back to the UK if one of my long distance followers wants it.


  1. Aww I hate when that happens. You have such excitement and you know you won't be coming back for a while or ever sucks big time. x

  2. That is too bad. Still, cool pics, and who knows - maybe next time :)

  3. Good for you for being such a big girl about the whole thing. I'd have been stomping my feet and the photo would have been of me throwing myself at the front door of the museum!
    I've enjoyed all of your photos and stories from your trip. TFS!

  4. 'Tis a bummer indeed to stop by a museum and find it closed. I bet the moon necklace is gorgeous, though.

  5. Aw, thank sucks! Sorry you couldn't visit - it looks so quaint. That reminds me to make sure the Bigfoot Museum in Maine is opened when I make my visit up there this Spring. Wouldn't want to get all the way there and have it be closed. Better luck next time!

  6. Oh no, that sucks:( Sorry to hear you didn't get to see it!! Hate when that happends.. But at least you got to go on a charming pub:) And not to mention a beautiful new necklace, a necklace is allways good!!
