The bus journey itself is quite enjoyable as it passes through several villages on the way. It was a glorious day but by the time we reached Newquay there was a sea haar blowing in so we had to go into Wetherspoons to get out of the cold, well that's our excuse anyway. I drifted in and out of the shops afterwards.
Yes Den you have to watch where you are walking in Truro some of the walkways can be quite trecherous. But Truro Cathedral is quite impressive especially since the recent clean of the outside. Hope you are enjoying your stay, you've certainly got the weather.

Yes Tinky we had a wonderful 5 days and visited Lands End, Bodmin, Penzance, Wadebridge and several other places but the trouble is that the time goes very quickly and before you know it its time to go back.

You'll have gone through Sennen on the way to Land's End. That's where my mother lives, only about 100yds from the First and Last Inn.

My happy thought for today is that I've just done a shop a Lidl's and they've got some Saké in. Not my favourite brand (Hakutsuru) but nice to find.

Yes we stopped and took some photos of the pub but alas we never went in there.

Sounds like den had a good time to, falling over aside and a real plus for tink was no flying to get there.

My happy thought is that a freedom of information request I made has arrived finally, the job it was for has long gone but tbh so had my enthusiasm for taking the position, still at least it won't be an issue next time.

Daf and the team there do really nice food and there's a decent beer garden out the back. Maybe next time.

The church next door is also worth a visit. It's very old and really nice inside.

Don't think so Den what are they? The one I had was brown/wholemeal bloomer cheese slices and salad, now I come to think about it it probably was a bit naff!

Yes Dilli a good time was had by both, and hopefully we will be able to share many more of such days together.

Yes, no flying Daddy, but glad to say flying doesn't hold so many horrors as the many years I spent thinking it did, I have somehow learned to cope. Someone once said to me 'there's nothing to fear but fear itself' how true that is. Being able to fly to any destination has literally opened up a whole new world for us. As I speak I am already planning a (foreign) holiday for February 2013 back to our favourite Tenerife (4hour flight).

BTW Daddy the job wasn't for you, what's for you won't go past you.

A Huntsman's lunch is a combination of different cold meats plus pickled onions, chutney and piccalilli, salad and crusty bread and apple and a Farmhouse lunch everything in it but don't take it at face value as different places do it all differently.

No its a bit dearer then that at about £6 or £7 depending on where you get it as its generally more expensive in smaller family run places then a big chain.
