... shopping and had a roll for lunch. I guess there were about 30 people on board. We passed the docks and rounded Pendennis Point, on which there is a castle erected on the orders of Henry VIII. There were so many top class yachts cruising past. This was a money area. When we got down to the Helford River that was where the BIG money was. Homes ( mansions ) owned by millionaires - one of them the drummer from the band Queen. We also saw an area owned by ...

... was no way to get past it so they all had to wait for it to turn off. This was on the main north south road but it was still only one lane each way. There are not many traffic lights on these main roads, but they have roundabouts everywhere. The big double ones at major crossroads are a bit of a nightmare. It was at one of these that we both missed the turnoff to Port Isaac. We were heading north to Bude, but the map showed minor roads heading in the direction of Port Isaac so ...

... across the couple of hundred yards to a rocky outcrop near the beach. Only £2 each. Marazion was a lovely little village and we spent some time there. Next stop was east through Helston and then south down the centre of the Lizard Peninsula to Lizard Point. We parked in the village which was full of tacky little shops and cafés . We didn't know whether you could drive further or whether you had to walk from here. All the other people seemed to be walking so we ...

... quieter. Our next stop was Lands End, the most westerly point of Great Britain. One and a half miles offshore is the Longships Lighthouse sitting atop a perilous set of reefs. It was a great sight and I must say that Edie did a wonderful job driving these one lane roads and dealing with the oncoming traffic. She had to back up on occasions and some of the passes were within a hairs breath. AND it's not our car. We drove on to Porthcurno and saw ...
