Cornwall - May 2017 - Looe

Finally it was time for our first 'big trip' of 2017 and we had decided to stay 'local' and tour around south Cornwall.  We had booked our first 2 nights at the Looe CC site to enable us to spend some time with my Dad & Step-Mum while they were staying in Looe for the week.

We arrived on Friday afternoon to dull skies but set up in the dry and had lunch in Bessy. 

We had arranged to meet up with Dad & Sue in Looe, which was a short 2 mile walk (downhill!) from the site.  We set off and got half way and the heavens literally opened! We were soaked through to the skin so decided to walk back to the site to shower and change.  Later that evening Dad picked us up and we enjoyed a lovely meal and a few drinks in town before getting a taxi back up to the site.

Saturday, thankfully, could not have been any different.  We awoke to lovely blue skies and warm sunshine.  So, after breakfast we decided to walk down into Looe via Millendreath and then up along the coastal path.  So glad we did as it was beautiful.  Once in Looe we met up with Dad & Sue again and had a pasty on the beach for lunch.  We spent the rest of the day in Looe wandering around the town and harbour and then walked back up to the site for the evening. 

We got soaked on Friday and sunburnt on Saturday.  That's the UK for you!
