As promised to all those back in the office. I told you I would blog. Please sit back and enjoy my insights into Cornwall and all the joys there are to behold.
Falmouth a very large natural harbour and very busy by modern standards. It splits quite nicely between the industrial and the traditional.
When we arrived on Saturday lunchtime Mrs Cheesecake and I had the opportunity to explore the old streets and discovered quickly that almost every potential cuisine is available. My quest for the perfect Cornish Pasty had begun!
Day Two saw our first proper expedition. We hit the road after a hearty full English and headed for surfer’s paradise, Newquay. Again the weather has been good and I fear I may burn. I had the opportunity to have my first pasty for lunch today. Steak and Stilton. A winner! I have heard a rumour that there is a pasty shop in St Ives where you can buy a pasty that can be worn like a hat. Can you guess where I am going tomorrow.
We checked out the beach which has a crazy Bond style house sitting on top of a cliff that can only be accessed via suspension bridge. I even had the chance to for a bit of a paddle. Water as expected feckin freezing.
We also headed to the Blue Reef Aquarium and got the see all the cool fishes and some really fuckin fuggly ones too.
As an aside on our way between Falmouth and Newquay Mrs Cheesecake and I found the following. It was so funny we had to stop the car on the way back so we could take a picture.. Never let it be said that I ain’t highbrow.
Who knows what tomorrows voyage of discovery will bring. Come back soon to find out.
