Hello There! I've finally got around to sorting out the
I've never been on me hols to
Anyway, enough about what I did and didn't wear- I say time for the snaps!
Porthleven: our home for the week.
Reached via a visit to my beloved Totnes (and its super flea full of my kind of tat) and a cup'tea'bun break at Helston...
(oh and these are a mix of mine and P for popsie's snaps)
We arrived in glorious Sunshine...
... and I promptly got pooped on by a seagull.... yuck!

Day Two: The beach and the first Pasty...
T'was so sunny and warm (don't faint) we decided to just pootle around the town (or whatever it was!) for the day. And by lunch time we made use of the bakery, bought some "award winning" pasties (fancy) and then headed for the beach....
The "award winning" pasties had to wait as I wanted to paddle. It was soooooo cold, and I mean cold- it made you do the cold - cold - cold jig!
Looks warm and inviting doesn't it!
Obviously it was the complete opposite.....
Tasting the "award winning" pasty (though I thought it was average) and having a flyaway hair moment...
Headscarf donned to keep my hair under control- this happened a lot over the week!
Day Three: The Lizard.
Ma and Pa had told me about a really old fashioned tea room on the Lizard, so I got my hopes up of having a lovely cream tea in super duper surroundings.... alas, that was 30+ years ago, and things have changed somewhat since. Let's just say it's now a crappy modern affair with no charm... bah!
Me taking the above photos and a picture of..... well, the disappointment in the form of a tearoom!
|The Lizard Peninsula... I think!|
|Siren or Harpy... ? Nah, Harpy... A Harpy on the rocks!|
Thankfully, we found a nice cafe to have some refreshments after our trundle down to the Lizard...
|Action shot of|
the making of the first (or was it the second?) cream tea of the holiday. Nom, Nom, Nom.
Think that's about all for today- just five more days to go!!!!
I shall divide it up and do another instalment of three days, then another of two days with my vintage finds bunged in... sounds like a good ideal to me. ;)
Remember this picture- it's connected to another of our holiday jaunts!
