On 1 May we drove to Fowey (rhymes with ‘joy’). To get there from Looe we took the Boddinick Ferry across the River Fowey. It was nice to be close to the sea and the weather was cheerful.



We parked at the top of the town and walked down.

In a shop I bumped into my cousin. I hadn’t seen her since we were both children, but we recognised each other. She took me to see her parents. We had already planned to have lunch together in Staffordshire a week later.

After Fowey we drove on to Lanhydrock, a National Trust property. When we visited 30 years ago we put it down as a ‘must revisit’.



We also enjoyed revisiting Trerice, another National Trust house.
