Our week away in Cornwall eventually arrived. The hottest day of the year so far, and we were in the car.
As we got close to Treworgans farm, the clouds gathered and the temperature dropped by fifteen degrees. Still pleasant but a remarkable change.
The cottage was perfectly setup for disabled access and living, so less stress for Marcia and I. Almost the only sound were the sheep, literally under our window, and surrounding the decking where we ate some meals.
The sign on the gate had me hearing the Jaws theme when I read it.

It was well off the beaten track, narrow lanes leading to a track up to the farm. Apart from the sound of the occasional train, it was quiet and secluded. But it wasn't totally cut off, Ladock had shops and Truro wasn't far.
There is a temptation to plan a visit every day of the week. To make the most of the time, but I held back. Visiting my sister was the priority, after that it was just see how we felt each day.
After driving to my sisters on Tuesday we took it easy on Wednesday and went to the Eden Project on Thursday.
When we last visited during our honeymoon it wasn't fully complete. It was good to see how much had changed. The outside area is now fully planted and inside the domes have a matured look.

The drive home was again very hot, but with less traffic than I expected it only took five hours. We'll be back next year.
