Pilgrimage to Padstow

Left Trewethett and Tintagel and continued our travels through Cornwall. Through pretty villages and majestic wind farms. We thought we would revisit Padstow, previously visited in about 2004. As we entered the top of the village there was a sign for Park & Ride, do use it if you go, because it only cost £4…

Tasty Tintagel

“We’ll walk to Tintagel today, according to the map it’s not as far as Boscastle!!!” Said Mike this morning… However, what Mike had failed to realise that there were humongously steep valleys to climb down and up (should have known by the name Valley of the Rocks).

So let the adventure begin… We saw the kids and said our goodbyes which was mixed emotions. But did agree the babysitting duties once we return. The plan originally was to go to the Scottish Highlands, island hopping around the Outer Hebrides, but plans needed to be changed at the last minute for reasons that…
