The rain had stopped in Beesands this morning, so we could see it was a one street town (and only one side of the street has bulidings, because the other side is the ocean (English Channel). At least the rain washed most of the mud off the car, but had to go back on those roads to get out of the place. Had a chat to a local and found a better way, but couldn't avoid them entirely.

So headed off to Cornwall, via Plymouth (because that's where some old ships left from, the Mayflower, Captain Cook etc), and via Truro (something to do with Maurice's family history and cornish pasties) and finally to Marazion. We are staying at the Godolphin Arms, a pub directly across from St Michaels Mount. This is a tidal island which you can access across a causeway at low tide, or by boat at high tide. Seems very popular, people everywhere. Can see the island and causeway from our room, tide comes up very quickly. and sea quite rough today, so no boats!
