We set off as soon as possible stopping first at Paignton with its colourful rows of.changing sheds on the beachfront, and many traditional English beachfront hotels.
The Golden Hind takes pride of place in the middle of the seafront and is spectacular with its intricate rigging, and beautifully kept timber hull.
We went to a bakery ......Fullers Pasties on the seafront, that specialised with all kinds of different flavours from steak and ale, pork and apple, turkey and cranberry and many more. Buying one each to take away, they were a welcome lunch later in the day.
On through very old villages with whitewashed thatch roofed houses right on the road front, we finally arrived at Plymouth after a ferry ride across the river.
Down the hill there was an old bathhouse set on the hill in park land. Being a lovely and quite hot day the locals were basking in their rare sunshine!
Finding our way out of Plymouth we headed on to Truro. Getting through the cities was proving a mission and Truro was the worst. Traffic going the opposite direction was quite literally banked up for miles and miles.
We eventually found the A30 and managed to get to Penzance by 6. 45 after a 7 hour drive!
Our B&B The Pendennis is a huge old historic house on a nice street just up from the waterfront.
We have been upgraded to a bigger room though 3 stories up.....the hosts are very pleasant and helpful. The Pendennis is in a row of B&B’s We walked along the seafront and had dinner at one of the many eateries......a carvery as well as plenty of fish was on the menu at The Luggate.
