Two Go Mad On The Roseland

Absolutely beautiful day today, and we went to St Mawes and beyond (I think I've seen that film...). To get there, went on the King Harry Ferry, which is the first time I've ever been on it, and it's suitably entertaining. For those not local, it's a car ferry across the river, pulled on two big clanking chains, with perspex sides to see through. £6.50 though, rip off?

From there to St Mawes, where we went round the castle. Got given audio commentary things*, which for a start makes you feel like you're looking round with a mobile phone clamped to your ear which is irritating enough, but as soon as it got to the dodgy 'local' accent acting bits I gave up and just explored, which was far more fun. Lots of spiral staricases and views across the bay back to Falmouth. Kind of odd seeing it from this angle. As the art mistress said to the gardener.

Then we drove up to St Anthony Head (insert Buffy joke of choice here) lighthouse. The trees aren't in leaf yet, but the paths are edged with daffodils and violets and primroses, and it was all quite lovely.

Portscatho next, which wasn't where I thought it was, or rather, wasn't the place I was expecting it to be (does that make any sense whatsoever?). Almost drove into the sea when the road abruptly became water with no apparent warning signs. Bought ice cream in the shop, where I marched in the exit door and apparently got funny looks. Well, easily distracted by ice cream, me.

* I originally typed that as 'audio commentary thongs'. Which would have put a rather different complexion on the day...

Right. So, better late than never, can you recommend and b&b's in striking range of Eden?

(He says, not having yet looked at a map to see precisely wher it is, nor where you are.)

'any' rather than 'and', obviously.

Oh, and 'where'.

Dance your cares away,
Worry's for another day.
Let the music play,
Down at Fraggle Rock.

Music ends.
