|The dream of Vera-on a Penzance beach.|
This was our first exploration day with the first stop being Argoos in Penzance followed by a little peruse round the town.We were disappointed on both counts as the Argoos store informed us that they didn't have the camera in store even although its website had said it did the day before.So it was a hunt for a cafe with wifi which appeared by the name of Rosie's Tearoom.Over a coffee and a couple of Bakewell tarts a new one was ordered from Argoos in Bodmin which was about forty miles away so Lady Watson's reunitement with a camera had to be delayed by another day.
She took her mind of her cold turkey by perusing the shops mainly the ones of the charity type and lo and behold found some bargains to cheer herself up.Apart from that Penzance doesn't offer much just the same named stores you find throughout Britain.
Shopping was all done by lunchtime so we headed towards St Ives just as the sun came out meaning it was going to be busy and I wasn't disappointed.
St Ives is a town size version of Mousehole with its abundance of narrow streets so much so that you park your car on the outskirts and have the choice between walking into town or jumping on a minibus.We walked into town but decided that we were going to bus it back.
|The tide comes in pretty quick|
|The long and winding road.|
We toddled off down the hill into town to be greeted by hundreds of daytrippers out to enjoy the sunshine.
|Seagull chick with it's own paddling pool.|
|Typical English seaside town complete with wall to wall chip shops.|
|Pick a boat any boat.|
|Time for a top up.|
|Just how I like my pubs.|
|This is were Lady Watson disappeared albeit not for long.|
