Just back from a week in Cornwall. I haven't been until last week for a few years and decided to go there. I stayed in a campsite near Polperro and Looe, and that was our base for the week. On our first day we checked out Polperro (as I've said, I expected the car park charges) and at first we thought 3 hours was too much but found out it wasn't enough as we later paid a return visit. Grabbed a hot drink near the harbour. Than spent the afternoon in nearby Looe. Was blessed that first day as it was very hot and warm, and lovely.
The second day was a bit random. Visited Trago Mills (it was a lovely walk in the area around) before going to a Cavern nearby which was just because we saw a sign for it. Quite interesting, but didn't expect it to be made by hand, and still interesting. We went at the right time as it wasn't busy.
On the third day, we went back to Polperro and went on a boat trip around the coast. It was £5 for adults, and we where the only two on the boat, 3 if you count the skipper. It was really good, seeing the coastline from the boat was lovely as the coastline was very ragged, quite unlike the white cliffs of home. Would recommend it especially if not many get on. The boat we went on was called the Smuggler. Much enjoyable as not really done a boat trip before (apart from the ferries to France/Ireland and one around Pett may years ago but anyway).
On the fourth day, we headed towards Falmouth but changed our mind and went elsewhere. We went down a road that ended up taking us to a ferry to Fowey (try saying that drunk), so Fowey was our first port of call. It was a lovely place to visit, nice harbour, nice streets, just a lovely, picturequest place to visit. Spent over 3 hours there again, time flies in Cornwall. We got back to the vehicle just as the heavens opened so that was good timing. Headed towards St Austral, and found a sign for Charlestown, so decided to have another visit as haven't been for years. Found a carpark and walked towards the harbour. Found a strange building and was most confused, until someone said, that it was from a film set as filming a Pirate (as in Pirates of the high seas, not a Pirate movie if that makes sense). Saw a Pirate ship that was part of the film set, which was good.
We later wandered around the shipwreck museum, but I guess that is a review, so I won't say much apart from I had my first scone with clotted cream and jam ;)
More to continue.
