Goodbyes #1 Cornwall via Dismaland

Before leaving the UK and setting off for Myanmar, or interim locations while we await confirmation of Anna’s VSO placement, we took a drive down to Cornwall to visit my and say goodbye to my family. The timing was perfect for a half way stop at Banksy’s Dismaland in Weston-super-Mare.

In Cornwall we took a walk down to Black Head, a small headland in the St. Austell bay, somewhere I had not been in years but used to enjoy walking and snorkelling when I lived at home. While clambering down to the small secluded cove I joked about having a swim and before I knew it I was in! Excessive seaweed aside, it was great and the sea surprisingly mild.

On another day, we headed over to Bodmin and hired bikes to cycle the Camel Trail to Padstow and back. The Bodmin-Wadebridge section of the trail is distinctly different to the Wadebridge-Padstow section and notably less busy. Padstow was lovely, but extremely busy and Rick Stein’s stamp was unmissable.

On the cycle back to Bodmin, we rewarded ourselves with some wine at the Camel Valley Vineyard.
