    Aunty May's

    August 17 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Stopped at Aunty May's in Newlyn to get some pasties before walking along the footpath next to the beach. We met this little dog. Well, actually, it just decided to piss in front of us while we were eating and enjoying our hot drinks on the bank.Read more

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Tiere unterwegs

    April 24, 2019 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

    Fowey to Mousehole

    August 11, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We started the day with a mooch around the Fowey shops. We found the most amazing spot for lunch, it felt like we could have been anywhere in the world (we imagined Bali)! Lunch of drunk mussels in curry sauce with aioli chips was a winner!

    We then made the drive the Mousehole - more narrow roads. It's very pretty here although a limited number of pubs! Thankfully we are staying in the Ship Inn who are more than happy to accommodate us! Lovely treat behind the bar for us from Liam and Josie too - thank you both x

    We spent the evening drinking champagne on a bench looking through our wedding photos from Jack, can't wait to show you them all! Then back to the pub for a fish and chip tea!

    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
