Tales from Abroad 2.

More from Mumsy & Dadling.....


Hi from St Ives
We are enjoying sunny Cornwall. So far we have spent 5 pleasant days T & C in St Albans. Now we are youth hostelling in Boswinger near St Austell before heading for Wales. We will be staying in a castle first night there. Have done a lot of miles driving up hedgerows (where the satnav takes us) It is like driving up a tunnel - lots of backing up! However they are very colourful with the spring flowers & the odd pheasant. All the land is used for housing first, then farming & what
is left for roads! The gardens are magnificant esp. the Lost Gardens of Heligan where we walked for 4hrs. Highlights so far have been St Albans Cathedral, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Glastonbury, Mavegissey plus all the quaint villages & interesting people we meet along the way. No Internet or mobile coverage at Boswinger so this instalment is late. Sending postcard to mother.
Love to all



Flat out at work this week Port Douglas was lovely; more on that another day, but I will leave you with a pic of me & one of my cousin's resident dunny dwellers. Yes, this little dude usually lives on the dunny wall, up high, but is not opposed to being picked up on his way out the window so long as your skin is wet.
