Cornwall: Heligan Gardens; Mevagissey

Having left the cat to the tender mercies of my cat-sitting mother (or vice-versa), we're off to Cornwall to enjoy unaccustomed sunshine in Fowey.

Hotel lunch on the way there

I took this self-portrait in the mirror of the hotel in Tavistock where we lunched on the way down.

Mary and Gerry on the balcony

The holiday was arranged by Clare's sister Mary and her husband Gerry, pictured above. This is the view from the balcony of our apartment.

Today we visited the Lost Gardens of Heligan followed by a short detour to a pub in Mevagissey on the way home.

Mevagissey town

Mevagissy is very attractive but the narrow roads are a nightmare: especially where they are not one-way through the town.
