Rest and relaxation prior to our departure

We have been making the most of the forced rest and relaxation period prior to our delayed departure. By the time we leave later this month hopefully, we will be fit and refreshed – tooth and abscess fixed, colds come and gone, the final show stoppers like the additional electrics on the bikes sorted with the added bonus of additional family visits. Keeping fingers crossed that Anne gets a clean bill of health from the specialist on the 25th – and we should be off on the 26th!!

We headed west, with no idea where we were going to go or stop for the night and discovered the gorgeous Cornish fishing village of Polperro. We found accommodation at the spotlessly clean Claremont Hotel. The weather has smiled on us too. We have loved the various cliff walks we have made from Polperro, and enjoyed the deliciously fresh seafood dinners. Walking along deserted country paths and discovering new tracks along the fabulously wild Conwall coast reminded us how much we love nature, and being alone in the elements. It was wonderful. And then after our walks, in the evenings, meeting some colourful locals in various pubs, chatting with them like long lost friends was the other side of travel which we love. In a way, it feels like we’ve started our trip – just not on the bikes yet…

  1. …. and the weather looks set to continue fine for the days to come, a foretaste of what lies ahead for you, so that you can enjoy this resting time to the full.
    Love and prayers.

  2. What an absolutely gorgeous spot. Envious. Phill and I are heading out west too for some Aussie outback isolation.. Taking the camper out Carnarvon way in the school holidays. Are you a friend of Katie’s on FB. Have a look at her outback adventures. I am so jealous yet proud of her.
    Love to the Big A too.
