... park and either catch a shuttle bus or a ferry into Falmouth. We thought we needed to get a bit closer. As it turned out there were a number of small car parks near the waterfront. We parked at one called 'The Dell". I checked the machine. It was £5.40 for an 'over 4 hour" ticket. So I put in £5.50 and pressed the button. Bells rang and I was issued a ticket for 4 hours and got £1.50 change. Is it just me or do these parking machines ...

... no doubt a few more. But it was a nice flat little village with very colourful houses and flower adorned pubs. Further south we stopped again at Newquay where we had arrived a week ago. This is a modern "party town" a reputation it got from the thousands of surfers who flock here each summer. There was no surf today but the cliffs with pathways leading down to the sea where quite something. Heading back to the cottage we decided to get takeaway for dinner. Bad idea. Where are ...

After the Norman conquest, the island was gifted to the Benedictine monks of Mont St Michel in Normandy, who raised a new chapel on the site in 1135. The Mount later served as a fortress and is now the family seat for the St Aubyn family. We paid our entrance fee of £10.50 each and started our climb ...

... and then headed to the south coast and Penzance. Most shops were shut. We walked along the Causeway which was the main market street in olden days. We then found Chapel Street where the oldest buildings are to be found. This was quite interesting. And that was about it. On the whole Penzance doesn't really have much going for it. And there was not a pirate in sight. We got back to the cottage about 4.30 and I watched the French Open Men's final. We decided that we would go to ...
