Today we left MiL’s house for a few days in Cornwall. We were intending to stop off at Stonehenge on the way, but after sitting for an hour and a half in a dreadful traffic jam, decided to just wave at the stones as we drove past, and try again on the way back.
I’d quite forgotten how absolutely beautiful the English countryside is, and we had to stop to get a couple of pics of some of the gorgeous horses which seemed to be everywhere, just grazing along the side of the road as we crossed Bodmin Moor.
This momma and her baby were just the loveliest sight to behold.
I love the old-style sign posts. They have so much more character than the modern ones.
Colliford Lake is a tranquil looking reservoir on Bodmin Moor, popular for trout fishing.
This ancient stone at the side of the road, really intrigued me. It obviously had an inscription on it at one time.
Our GPS took us along miles of narrow country lanes, often wide enough for only one car, so there were a few times when we came face to face with another vehicle, and one of us had to reverse until we found a wider bit where we could pass one another.
Eventually we arrived at Trenderway Farm where we are to stay for five nights.
We were delighted to be immediately sat down to enjoy tea and scones with home-made strawberry jam and Cornish clotted cream. Absolutely delicious!
Tomorrow we will go exploring in Looe, which is said to be the cutest town in Cornwall. Wishing you all a great weekend.
