The Britannia Inn proved to be a great spot. We had such a big day yesterday, we decide to eat out as we were too tired to cook. Enjoyed the fish’n’chips and the free wifi as well. We serviced the Hymer before leaving just to make the most of their hospitality.
Continuing our journey into Western Cornwall, the GPS turns us onto the B3287. The road is narrow and the hedgerows high as we make our way toward St Mawes Castle at the far end of the peninsula. This road must be a shortcut to somewhere as it’s very busy this morning. It’s slow going as we need to keep the left hand mirror in the Hedgrow for traffic to pass. It doesn’t take long till we can see the ocean on our left as we drop down to St Mawes.
You can tell from the photos the English summer has returned with a vengeance this morning, it’s cool and the wind has the jackets out again. After a carpark coffee we re-trace our morning drive for a couple of miles before turning down to Trelissick to catch the ferry across the Eastury. Did I mention that every second village in West Cornwall starts with the letters Tre…
Still full of pasty as we drive down toward Penzance we can see St Michael’s Mount just off the coast and we turn toward the village of Marazion to find a carpark for our visit.
We have parked up about a kilometre along the beach from St Michael’s, it’s pay parking but only £1 per 24 hours. Surprisingly we find ourselves parked up next to another Australian couple, Johannes and Joy from Esperence in WA. Like ourselves on there 4th year of motorhoming adventure. Johannes still has family in Germany and his bases his camper there whilst back in Australia.
