So it should be no surprise to any of us that we stayed a week longer than planned and had a VERY relaxing time in Cornwall. We caught up with family and friends, went to the beach, ate pasties, drank cider, played football and cricket with Louis and Henry (Molly’s cousins) and explored some parts of Cornwall we hadn’t seen before. And every morning we woke up knowing where we would be that night, how we were going to get there and what we might encounter along the way! As I say, very relaxing.
The highlights were little Cornish pubs in places like Marazion and Penzance, walking in the woods and coastal paths around Portreath, getting hopelessly lost in the Maize Maze (with Julia reliving nightmares from the movie “Children of the Corn”!), discovering new towns East of Falmouth across King Harry’s Ferry, pub crawling in St Ives and of course, the Hayle Town Carnival (or to be more correct, Ye Olde Heyl Carnivel). Nothing like a bunch of Cornish famers tearing up and down the main street in their tractors, towing trailers full of children whilst men dressed as women run alongside them! Well, we loved it so I am sure you would have too!
