A scorching time in Cornwall

30 Jul

Just returned from a very sunny and hot Cornwall. We did over 360 miles just visiting all our favourite spots. This is the 250th post that has been published!
Perranporth was packed with VW buses of all types and eras. Wonderful stuff.Living the surfer dream. We caught a well supported Marie Curie Classic Car event at Trewithan House. I bought a tasty Alpaca burger. Highly recommended!
The camper van was recognised by at least two passersby. One, a delighful lady in a tiny bikini hoped that we had fire lighters onboard, for her barbeque at Chapel Porth beach. A pleasant young man found us munching fish and chips on the large car park at Mevagissey, drinking alcohol free beer with the roof up. He was intent on buying an NV200 camper van as his next vehicle.
Also contacted on our return by a chap who has just bought a Lunar Vacanza!. Hope that he responds again with lots of details and pictures. You can see his comments by scrolling way back to the Alloy Wheels post last year.
On the way home we had a young couple in an all black VW transporter camper, photo our QR code and we were viewed online on the M5 roadworks! Got lots of smiles and laughter in their cab. Hope that it was supportive!

Saw this delightful little toddler with his granddad at Falmouth Harbour. He got into the row boat by himself and new exactly what to do, positioning himself carefully in his favoured seat at the transum.

and my wife says that I am moody…… Just look at these clouds above The Beacon, St Agnes after a full week’s very hot weather. There were lots of tourists from the Netherlands and Germany enjoying the best that the South West can offer. We came across two Dutch 4 x 4 overlander adventurers in a narrow lane nearby but did not manage to get a quick picture. Their camper vans looked as if they had just returned from Morocco!
