Warm, sunny and less wind described the morning, after Helston we followed minor roads through to Mawnan Porth and along the banks of the Helford River, narrow channels where boats were moored.
Here is PAt in front of the Tropical Ferns, they look like something from the age of the dinosaurs, don't they?
Perhaps the most populat feature of this garden is the Laurel Maze, with the summer house in the centre, it's certainly the noisiest with people calling out to each other!
To reach these gardens, (and others like them) you have to drive down some very narrow and tortuous roads, with possibly the worst signposting in the country, today for instance we passed half a dozen signposts that only indicated the direction we had come from, two where they pointed in the wrong direction, three where the arms were broken off, and one that was so rusty, you couldn't read it! and finally this beauty, a real work of art, even if it doesn't comply with the Euro regulations!
Walking down into the harbour I took this view, which we have added greeting text to, printed several off, and written and posted them to friends and relatives.
