Where has all the Daddies Sauce gone?

It’s been three months since I last saw it on the shelves!

Botallack Mine & Porth Curno

It was back to Levant today, but this time I headed west towards Cape Cornwall to the Botallack Mine.The path was no quite as desolate as the one to Geevor, but the Mine ruins are more spectacular.

SatNav Thrill Ride

I knew that the major roads were not the most direct route so I hit (for the first time) the “Detour” button on the SatNav.This immediately diverted me onto some lesser roads and it was not long before it was telling to turn onto roads I would never normally consider.Soon I was directed down the narrowest roads I have ever driven on – so narrow, that it I were to have broken down, I would have been trapped as it would have been impossible to open the doors!…. This time I took a boat up the river Fal to Truro.This was a much more interesting trip and the best way to see Truro.

Beach Day

After a few hours soaking up the rays, moved on to the Penrose Estate where there are walks around the lakes created by the Loe Bar…. Once you’re there, there’s not much to see, the path is set back from the lakes and a line of trees form a barrier blocking any views.

Going Underground

I thought I’d been to most of the gardens in the area, but today I visited Trengwainton.I have passed it many times and thought I’d been there before, but this was not the caseGreat gardens, high up, high views over Mounts Bay..Then took a walk along some of the most desolate coastline in Cornwall – desolate but still spectacular. The cliffs are scared by the mines (Levant an Geevor) and it looks more like the surface of Mars than a piece of the Cornish coast.Finally, I’d hoped to catch the sunset at Kynance Cove.

Return to Eden

The main change, as expected, was the addition of the Core – a worthy contribution to the site.Hows within the Core is a gigantic grannie sculpture, called the seed.Not much has changed other than that…. The next big change will be the “Edge” – the early sketches of the building look spectacular but I guess it will be 2-3 years before it is completed.Also, as I was passing though, I stopped off in Turo, As expected, it was just another town – good for shopping, but nothing else going for it.

Lizard’s Tale

In fact I can watch the sun rise over the the sea from my bed.Unfortunately, for reasons I wont go into, I had a little work to do on the first day – but I can think of worse locations to do it!Anyway, once that was dealt with I headed of to Lizard Point for a walk along the cliffs and a tour of the Lighthouse. There are some very nice cottages available for hire at the Lighthouse, but the caveat is that you have to bring some earplugs for when the fog horn sounds!Oh, and I met some friendly cows along the way.
