How do you fancy this as your retirement home? Poldhu used to be a hotel many years ago but is now a rather upmarket care home for the elderly.
It’s very blustery today and a slight misdirection by me meant that, instead of driving straight to Poldhu Cove, we made an unexpected visit to Kynance Cove by mistake. We had visited Kynance before but, never mind, we found ourselves in the National Trust carpark. It seemed a shame not to give Alfie a quick run while we were there and so, despite the howling wind, Peter and Alfie disappeared for some time. In fact, they went the whole hog, down the winding path towards the tiny cove.
We decided to try to find Poldhu Cove after all. It’s just beyond Mullion Cove and I don’t think we have ever been there before.
The Pay and Display carpark had a non-functioning machine so it was free! As we were parking, several cars pulled up and whole families piled out, all in woolly hats and parkas. Obviously a very popular spot at the weekend.
An odd beach – dunes beside the road and then quite slaty and large pebbles. What with that and a howling wind, I found it quite tricky to actually stand up! Alfie, however, didn’t let it worry him!
In fact, the place was a doggy wonderland…
It was a dog, by the way, not a panther despite appearances!
Before I embarassed myself by falling over we decided to make a get-away and get back to the safety of Madge.
To finish on a humorous note, Peter took this pic of a couple of rather large garden ornaments nearby…
Tomorrow, fans, is supposed to be full sun! Looking forward to it…
You’re certainly blowing the cobwebs away. 😊 We’ve had full sun here today, which has been wonderful, although there has been a chilly wind. Hope you’ll get the sun tomorrow. xx
It’s gradually getting sunnier here today Sally (Sunday). xx

Hi I’m supposed to be taking the caravan to The Lakes next week but Cumbria Police are asking tourists to stay away. I’d be either in the van or on the fells so no risk of contact with others. I’m worried we’ll be badly received though.
Are you getting on ok travelling around in a campervan as Cornwall have been asking tourists to stay away?
Hi Amanda. We came to Cornwall before that was said and are staying on a small farm site. We don’t mix with anyone else and just go to the beach if it’s not crowded (which it hasn’t been as the weather hasn’t been that good). Interestingly, there is another small caravan here and now a campervan so we are not the only visitors. We don’t use any of the facilities apart from electric and water. I don’t know what to say really. It’s horrible to feel locals are resentful but I can’t see you would be problem to anyone in the Lakes. Keep in touch. Valerie.
I can imagine Alfie’s reaction! Canine paradise 👍💜

Cornwall is now on my “to visit” list, if we can ever travel again, you make it look so inviting. Take care
