During my 9 years living in the UK, I saw a LOT of Norfolk and Suffolk but only a fraction of the rest, as Ricardo and I were always working or in France (working too). This time seeing as I was on holiday, I was determined to see a bit more, and managed to talk my niece, the lovely Louisa into coming on a road trip. We decided on Cornwall and I'm so glad we did. The weather had been pretty dismal except for the 2 bank holidays (see previous post) but finally the sun shone. When the sun does shine, there's nowhere else on earth you'd rather be.
This is the romantic B and B called Hill Farm we stayed at in a tiny hamlet called Hittisleigh on the northern edge of Dartmoor in Devon. The only reason we chose it was because it was half way to Cornwall but we couldn't have found a more beautiful place to wake up.
But there was more to see further afield
... and so our next stop was Boscastle (after driving past incredibly close to Stone Henge.)
Look at the curve on this roof! There WAS no fish eye lens, the whole house was bowed.
Boscastle experienced a terrible flood in 2004, here is a photo from the CBBC websitebut there was no sign of trauma on this perfect day.
It had to be done, the definitive Cornish Pastie was absolutely delicious.
Wilson's promontory National Park and it felt strange not to have to look out for snakes along the way.
