We're on holiday too.

Today was a real rest day and a reminder we are on holiday too.

Although the day started in a typically damp cornish fashion, it turned into a lovely sunny day. Robin finished the laundry, and I stayed in bed until it was time to strip the bedding for washing.
It was wonderful to rest amongst other folk on holiday. With an adventure like this it is very easy to constantly be moving on, moving on.

Meals were eating out in the multiplicity of eateries in the town; a pub, fish and chips in a quayside cafe; an italian overlooking the harbour and the street entertainers. Tonight was a fire eating unicyclist.

Padstow has been a wonderful break for us both, and wins the vote for best yachties laundry facilities. There was a piper during the day. The guitarist is back tonight.

Tonight, some of the working fishing boats have come into the protected harbour because tonight is a very high spring tide, combined with a northerly wind, which will push the sea swell down the river.

It will be sad to go tomorrow.
