Camping in Cornwall

After one night back home from Hay-on-Wye we were off again, this time Burton joined us for our camping holiday in Cornwall!

You can just about see Burton relaxing with Mr H and Ephram in my chair after we'd just got the tent up.  I'm afraid to say that none of them helped other than to tell us we should be quicker!

The amazing view from our tent front!

I had hoped to make both Mr H and Burton a sleeping bag for our camping trip, but alas I only had time to make Mr H's, so for this trip they had to share!  Hopefully next trip Burton will have his very own though Cool

Tuesday - Truro.  Whilst we wait for lunch, Burton surveys all of the leaflets I picked up to tell me where he'd like to visit in Cornwall

A quick trip to the Skinner's Brewery before heading back to the campsite.  We had intended to just pop to the shop for supplies, but there was a tour of the brewery just starting so it would have been rude to not join eh Wink

Enjoying some post-tour free pints, they were very generous!!

Wednesday - Padstow for my birthday.  Burton was a little worried he could get blown in the sea so he anchored himself to my picnic blanket whilst sat so close to the edge!

Thursday - St Austell Brewery.  Burton enjoying his first Cornish pasty, which incidentally was absolutely delicious, best one we had whilst in Cornwall!

Going on the St Austell brewery tour - checking out the yeast tanks

Inspecting all the old machinery

A little light reading for Burton!  He's certainly going to go home very knowledgeable about beer and brewing methods.

Some more free post-tour drinks!  Not quite as generous as Skinner's but still pretty good!

Mmmm there are so many good ice cream dairies in Cornwall, Burton is enjoying delicious blueberry and clotted cream ice cream here!

Friday - Bodmin and Wenford Steam Railway.  As the weather forecast was not good I figured this would be a good day to spend on a steam train, Burton agreed though it was pretty busy!

Enjoying some St Austell beer on the train

Burton about to enjoy his very first Cornish cream tea, yum yum yum!!

Sunday - Sight-seeing in Boscastle and Tintagel, plus Sunday lunch, nom nom!  This is Boscastle harbour, 10 years ago Boscastle was decimated by horrific floods.  Today they have much better flood prevention in place and you would have no idea anything had happened!

Mmm nothing like a traditional Sunday roast!

Monday - Driving back home to Gloucestershire, sad to leave but just in the nick of time weather-wise!
