Cornwall England – part 4

We move on along the very southwestern edge of England, still enjoying the beauty of Cornwall.  Brian takes me to a few of his old surfing haunts.  We stop to watch the surfers all over this coast, and there are plenty of them, lined up in tiers politely waiting for their turn on a wave. Here in surf country the season is just getting started. We see them in the back bay of St. Ives, at Perranporth and Newquay, and at Watergate Bay.

We stop to see the castle at Tintagel, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur.


And late in the day we head to Fowey for the night. It’s a cute fishing village that turns out to be several hundred years old. Well, of course it does! It’s English.

The next morning we hike up to St. Catherine’s Castle and then wandere through the village before driving to the cute village of Mevagissey and to the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The story about these lovely gardens reminds me of The Secret Garden, one of my favorite children’s books.

And that night Brian gets to see an old friend when we meet up with Lee and his lovely wife, Haley, and their three bundles of energy. I really enjoy meeting them and letting the kids wear me out in the garden after they treat us to a fantastic dinner. What a perfect way to end our time in Cornwall, with friends. Come to think of it, that’s how we started our time in Cornwall too. Thank you Lee and Haley for a wonderful evening.
