We intended to have a day in Falmouth, but found it too busy with traffic for out taste, so we drove round the scenic drive past Pendennis Castle to park for a walk round the Queen Mary Gardens.
Here was the view across the bay
This view was rather different last year when we visited, with the beds jam packed with gorgeous blooms
Walking back through the garden to the car we saw these cactus blooms above our heads!
They were by local standards cheap, too, the pasties were £2.30 and the Strawberry Flans only 80 pence each, it made a heart dinner for a small sum.
We departed from St Keverne feeling rather full and followed the very narrow (and steep) little road down into Porthallow, a charming village with a shingle beach, loos and a car park with an honesty box instead of an exhorbitant fee, splendid!
Here is the shore and village
By now we were ready to take a steady ride back to camp.
