Cornwall holiday

. . . . Easter week this year. And at that time our front garden, dug up to grow more edible things, looked like this -----
We had a self catering bungalow at Porthcothan, a small settlement by this lovely bay westwards along the coast from Padstow . . . . . . where cute fishing boats like this were at be seen, that don't look quite real.
On the journey there we stopped off to eat our sandwiches at a National Trust property near Okehampton, Finch Foundry, a 19th century water-powered forge. Read about it here.
Here's some of the tools they made there, about 400 pieces a day, with a local workforce of 25.
Then we went on to Padstow for a quick look before going to the cottage, oh, and a cup of tea, and, well, why not an icecream too.
Next instalment later.
