Tuesday dawned beautifully sunny so we bibbed into the tourist town of Perranporth on the bike and had a little look around the tat shops then wandered down to the beach.
We bought a steak Cornish pasty (and a dinky half-size one for me called the “Pixie Pasty” and (cheekily) took them and our takeaway teas to the care home over the road and sat on one of the old dear’s benches to consume them !
Then I had booked us in at Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm (the home of Rattler’s Cider) and for the bargain price of £8 p/p we were presented with an annual pass and a ticket for a free drink !!!
We saw the old presses and the museum had videos to explain the process. Then through to the distillery where we learnt about colouring and ageing & you could try samples.
There was also a farm with cute goats, piggies and peacocks then we had a sit in the courtyard and drank out free pint of Rattler’s in the sunshine ☀️
Sadly we didn’t have room in the top box for a pallet of Rattler’s (see piccie below) so had to make do with a glass for Marcus – but when I checked later, it’s cheaper in Sainsbury’s anyway !!!
We then headed back to Rich’s, packed up and said our goodbyes and headed off…
We originally were going to visit The Eden Project so had booked a campsite 5 minutes from there for convenience – but in the end we didn’t go – however we were delighted to arrive and be given a cracking spot overlooking the sea 😊
Little sit in the sun, Dave on the sax whilst I made tea then a couple of glasses of wine whilst we watched Corro and an episode of The Crown before tucking up just gone 10pm 😴 💤
