  • Day123

    Driving to Cornwall

    October 18, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Bleak wet day for our drive south to Cornwall. Morning stop at Weston-super-Mare, strange name for a town but a lovely seaside town south of Bristol. Amazingly they have a sand castle competition running all summer. Lunch at Port Isaac, a small fishing port on the west Cornwall coast (also the little town where Dr Martin is set and filmed)- I had a great lobster sandwich.Read more

    Tiere unterwegs

    April 24 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    Was wäre eine Reise ohne Tierbegegnungen...
    Auf dem South West Coast Path ereignen sich manche Begegnungen überraschend und unvermutet, so zum Beispiel das Sichten und Beobachten der Seehunde oder der Basstölpel, wie auch die begegnunge mit einer (Kreuz?-)Otter, andere Tiere sind zu regelrechten Wegbegleitern geworden und wir bringen sie sofort mit dieser Wanderung in Verbindung, das sind vor allem Zaunkönig und Lerche, deren Stimmen regelmäßig zur Geräuschkulisse gehören und auch die Schafe und Kühe, die immer wieder am Wegesrand weiden.Read more

    11. Tag Penzance nach Hause

    April 25 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    Viel zu schnell ist diese Etappe wieder vorbei und wir wollen früh am Bahnhof sein, um in London Zeit zu haben, den Bahnhofswechsel zu Fuß zu machen...
    ...da fällt der Zug aus!
    Die Überraschung: wir werden überaus freundlich von einem Bahnmitarbeiter informiert, bekommen Tee und Wasser und : ein Upgrade in die 1. Klasse inklusive Snacks und Kaffee...! Da nehmen wir die U-Bahn in London in Kauf!
    Die Strecke ab Penzance gibt uns sogar anfangs Ausblicke auf unsere nächste Etappe, denn wir werden definitiv wieder kommen!
    Es wsar anders als das letzte Mal, vor allem aufgrund des sommerlichen Wetters, und wir sind gespannt, was uns beim nächsten Mal erwartet...
    Der Rest läuft glatt. Abends sind wir zurück in Hinterzarten und lassen es uns nicht nehmen, zu Fuß vom Bahnhof nach Hause zu laufen ;-)

    Trewidden Garden

    May 20, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Eigentlich wollten wir ja den "Nachbargarten" besuchen, aber der hatte geschlossen. Vor Ort bekamen wir dann den Tipp, dass Trewidden "nur ums Eck" ist und geöffnet hat. Diese Chance ließen wir uns nicht entgehen. Am Ende unserer Reise stellten wir fest, dass es eine sehr gute Entscheidung war, da dieser Garten einer der schönsten war.Read more

    Driving to Penzance

    April 3, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    After leaving London and the stop at Stonehenge, the driving got much easier. Less traffic and pretty countryside and towns to pass through. I stopped at one little village and grabbed a coffee from an old hotel. It had a fire roaring in a snug like room and I was tempted to just sit for a while. But the road beckoned and I was happy to get to Penzance just before dark. The bed and breakfast is very nice and the owners welcoming. A quick meal at a local Thai restaurant and then I was soon tucked up in bed.Read more

    Where it really all began

    April 4, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Some of you may know that I was born in Penzance Cornwall fifty mumble mumble years ago. This morning I visited Penzance hospital and also the house and village that my dad grew up in called Pendeen. I remembered the address somehow and found the lovely stone terrace house nestled in the narrow lane just as I recalled it (from a visit at 10 yrs old). I chatted to a newer resident and she said many of the old traditional houses were being bought by "city folk" who can telework these days. I know nana would have been pleased that her old house is still the original stone and not painted bright blue or reclad like some of the neighbours. Apparantly the old ways of village life is disappearing as it is in many places as technology shrinks the distances.Read more

    Penzance

    October 18, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    After a VERY trying day we are arrived in Penzance, which looks very neat and nice.

    A walk along the promenade and fish and chips finished the day, which featured a magical mystery tour diversion to absolutely bloody nowhere, getting lost in a maze of back country lanes, and almost getting bogged in field that wasn't actually at the edge of hell - but you could sure see it from there. It took us about 7 hours of driving to relocate about 200 miles. Car is looking a bit the worse for wear, thank goodness we took the full insurance!!!Read more

  • Day2

    Mousehole...

    July 14, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    Well we’ve made, and what a hidden gem it is; very pretty.

    In luck because a ‘Sea Salts & Sails’ maritime festival is happening this weekend. Sat on the harbour wall, sun shining and we’re enjoying our first Cornish beer.

    More to come....
