The Path to Mevagissey

After another of David’s hearty cooked breakfasts in the Black Knight, we decided to go for a 3 miles walk into Mevagissey, an industrious touristy little fishing village. We knew it was going to rain so we took our umbrellas and set off. It was a lovely walk but were aware that the return trip was going to be quite a steep walk uphill.
We found a small café to enjoy a traditional Cornish cream tea with homemade scones and clotted cream - delicious!
We wandered around the shops a bit and eventually sheltered from the rain in a pub.
When the rain eased off a bit, we commenced our walk home with a hot Cornish Pasty in hand, anticipating needing the energy for the uphill climb. However, much to our surprise, a bus with the destination marked as ‘The Lost Gardens of Heligan’ (which is right next to our campsite) passed us and then proceeded to turn around and go in our direction! Just couldn’t resist and hopped aboard, thus avoiding the long uphill climb in the rain! (Though we could have done with the exercise!)
A nice relaxing afternoon was spent back in the van and a light supper to end with.
