Last week I had to go and fetch my nearest and dearest from Gatwick airport. Now I will admit I really do love an excuse for a road-trip. I have always loved driving and as soon as I learnt I never looked back. I think that part of that has to do with growing up in a rural area. Without a car in Cornwall having a life can be a challenge and with so many beautiful places to visit you really do need some wheels.
So surprisingly perhaps despite being a country-girl I am always happy to set off on a long journey. I have driven all over Europe, through some of the biggest cities and so am fairly confident behind the wheel. Cornwall can feel a long way from anywhere though and the longest part of any journey is always the final leg home down the rolling A30.
Back to this week I successfully retrieved my Cornish other-half from Gatwick and we decided rather than return straight to Cornwall we would take a bit of a side-trip to the south coast and basically bunny-hop our way down it for a few days. We love nothing better than setting out with a vague route and just seeing what we find along the way. We weren’t disappointed.
We had a wonderful few days in Kent, Sussex, Dorset and Devon before crossing the border on to home turf! The pictures below are some that I took with my faithful old Brownie and I thought I would share! Again I have to say I was delighted with the results although I notice that bright sunlight (weren’t we lucky with the weather!) may be causing a few issues with exposure and my ability to see what I am taking a picture of in the tiny little view-finder!
