Hello world!

11 November 2006 – Welcome to the all-new web site. I’ve decided that the old one was too busy and have now gone for a more simplistic approach. It will take a while to migrate the content, so please bear with me.

Cornwall Holiday – Day 8, Last Day

First off to visit Tintagel Castle, but on the way, Breakfast at McDonalds again! Next Boscastle to see how the regeneration is going. I was not too impressed with the rebuilt Pixie Cottage – the new building looks more like a chapel. Finally, the official end to the Holiday, a crab sandwich and a pint of cloudy Cider in the Cobweb Inn.

Cornwall Holiday – Day 7

Too much sun yesterday, so no beach today. First off, Trevarno Gardens – I’ve been to most of the other gardens in Cornwall, but this was up there with the best of them, an unexpected high-light.

Next, Poldark Mine, one of those places that look really tacky in the brochures. I had pinned my hopes on the mine tour, and fortunately this was very good (even having a creationist tour guide having to explain how old the rocks were!). The rest of Poldark was as tacky as expected. Finished up at Coverack.

Cornwall Holiday – Day 6

Too much sun! Spent most of the day at my favourite beach, Kynance Cove. Everytime I go there I see lots of people get cut off by the tide – today was no exception. I ended the day at the Lizard. I walked down to LIzard Point, then back to the village for some excellent fish and chips.
