Monday we headed to the National Trust property of Cotehele and we walked and walked and walked. It was a really good day. The sun was shining and there was so much to see and do. As soon as we walked in the property there was a small weapon exhibition and Matt got to hold two swords. He was pretty happy about that!
After walking around the property we headed into the grounds, walking around the gardens and orchard before wandering down to the quay and having some lunch. After lunch we walked to Cotehele Mill and then back up to the house and the car park.
Somehow we had enough energy left for a fish and chip dinner and a trip to Fowey to watch the fireworks. A brilliant end to the day even if it left me completely worn out!
And then it was yesterday. Yesterday we had to travel home but not before we had a morning trip to Charlestown with Matt’s Dad. Then we were on the road. We broke up our journey on the way home at Castle Drogo which was so much fun. I think that Matt and I could have spent the entire day there to be honest but unfortunately we had to get home. We did have time to wander through the castle though and even found some time to check out the view. Although we did get soaked doing so and it decided to tip it down as we wandered through the grounds. Oh well.
So there we have it, our little Cornish adventure. I had such a lovely time and it’s great to think that my week off is only just beginning. Tomorrow sees us heading to Wales to visit Matt’s Mum and have some more adventures.
