We have had a wonderful time catching up with family and friends. We have also been very lucky with the weather, the sun has shone most days.
We have visited St Austell, Mevagissey, Fowey, Truro and Charlestown. It has been great having the E bikes to whizz around on. With Cornwall being so hilly the E Bikes have been a real help because at a click of a button it has made it easier work to peddle up the steepest of hills.
I caught up with my best friend Lisa, we have been friends since we were 2 years old. All these years we have kept in touch by writing cards even though it would be easier to email … now we are going to be keeping in touch using WhatsApp..how the world has changed!
Our most enjoyable trip was cycling down to Charlestown on the E bikes. I am sure a lot of people will know this quaint little harbour as it is regularly used for filming Poldark. Unfortunately Aiden was no where to be seen however, Colin and I associate Charlestown for another reason as this is where we got married.
It wouldn’t be a trip to Charlestown without having an ice cream from the Tall Ships Creamery.
Since arriving in Cornwall we have made sure we have filled up on as many of the Cornish delicacies as possible. We have eaten proper Cornish pasties from the local pasty shop, handmade fudge from Fowey and had a few samples of Tarquin’s gin and Korev which is the local lager brewed in my home town of St Austell.
Cornwall has certainly changed over the last few years, it has been a nice opportunity to say goodbye to everyone.
We have off loaded all the items that we packed in the motorhome that we have decided we wont need and the time has come to leave this haven and our next stop is back to the New Forest before heading off to Europe.
