May Bank Holiday - St Just in Roseland

Our last full day on the Roseland and the sun was shining from the start.  The bikes came out again and we spent the day biking around the peninsular.  First stop was the Roseland Inn in Philleigh for coffee and then across to Portscatho again for Sunday lunch sat outside in the sunshine.....we even got sunburned!

Once back on site we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening chilling out.  Michael and I managed a short walk down to the creek and back to the site as it was such a lovely evening.  

On bank holiday Monday we were heading home far too soon after a fantastic, packed weekend.  We stopped off on the way home, on the A39 in the Allen Valley, to take photos of the bluebell wood.

It's not long now until our first 'big' trip of the year.  9-days in mid Wales.  Here's hoping that the weather will play ball as it did last May when we visited Wales.

May Bank Holiday - St Just in Roseland - Trethem Mill

Trethem Mill was a wildlife haven.  We bought a bird feeder (in the shape of a daisy!) to take with us when we travel so we set it up and spent the weekend watching all sorts of birds visiting and also a very cheeky squirrel.

May Bank Holiday - St Just in Roseland & St Mawes

After a lovely peaceful nights sleep and a good breakfast of the now very traditional egg baps, we all decided to walk to St Mawes and back from the campsite, via St Just in Roseland and the church on the creek and along the coastal path.  Again it was overcast but it improved as the day went on.  The wild flowers at this time of year are wonderful and this walk did not disappoint at all.  We stopped off at a small cove on the way for a spot of shell hunting and had the whole beach to ourselves.

Once in St Mawes we had a pasty for lunch sat outside before returning to the campsite along the same route.

That evening we had a BBQ on site.
