Cali has been to St Mawes

Last weekend we returned to Merrose Farm Caravan Club Site at St Mawes.  We arrived on Friday afternoon and although it was Bank Holday weekend and the start of half term the site was only about a third full.  After a couple of laps of the site we decided to stay on the same pitch as we used last year as it wasn't too far from the facilities block and was also quite sheltered if it became windy.

The weather forecast for Saturday was cloudy but warm, so we headed off towards the coast path turning towards Pendower Beach and took the footpatch to Milinsey Mill where we stopped for a pot of tea.  We then walked to Veryan and towards Portloe for lunch.

From Portloe we walked along the coast path back towards Pendower beach - this was a stretch we hadn't walked before and was quite challenging.  It was also very interesting to see the World War 2 decoy bunker and early-warning Royal Observer Core Observation Post at Nare Head.  The weather was far hotter than forecast and we had an amazing walk before heading back to site and enjoying sitting outside Cali.

After our long walk on Saturday we decided to have an easier day on Sunday and catch the bus to St Mawes.  The bus stops at the site entrance and there are regular buses between Truro and St Mawes - perfect for a day out without moving Cali from site.  The day was totally different from the previous one with cloud and some drizzle.  We had a short walk to the Castle and a potter around the shops before heading to The Rising Sun pub for a G&T whilst waiting for our return bus.

We had a lazy morning on site on Monday before heading back home just before mid-day.  Another lovely long weekend in Cornwall.
