 Cecily drove us to the Helzephron Inn for lunch. Martin fancied fish and chip, Bear and Cec had gorgeous smelling (and apparently very tender) venison.

The chef did me plain salmon and salad, very lovely too, after a quick look at the far end and admiring the typically Cornish knick-knacks – the glass fisherman’s markers, ornaments and life-ring.

On the way out I had to admire the flowers.

Cec changes from her cute slip-ons into walking shoes, we hope she persuades Martin into having seagull stickers on their little Smart car.

On our way back to Bluefields, we stopped off for a cup of tea with Martin’s mum.
