    Brighton

    August 5, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Went through the Pavillion. What opulence! A a array of rooms dressed in oriental style. The dining room is light by an enormous chandler held to the ceiling by a dragon set on a palm tree then down to various ornamentation to this massive crystal chandelier. The bed rooms were surprisingly austere after the other rooms. Went back to bus area with enough time to duck across to the Albion Hotel. Had drinks sitting in a huge lounge facing Brighton Pier.Read more

    Mt St Michael on back to hotel

    Well, have experienced the traffic jam that occurs regularly getting to and from St Ives. We move on now edging the Bodmin Moors. Made it back to the hotel and decided to have my tea in. Service was atrocious. Poor lad was new and incredibly nervous and staff just left him to flustered on his own. Finally fed, ready for bed.Read more

    Lands End

    August 3, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Mad traffic today. Director Henry says he hasn't seen it like this for a while. All good . The roads are lined with trees, elder and oak , I think and as they have grown they have created a roof above the roadway.

    Right at the furtherest point of land in England, been there, done that.
