We decided to explore along the coast and go to the twin towns of Cawsand and Kingsand. A warm summer’s day yet again (remember this is supposed to be March!) meant the whole trip was idyllic, and the two towns themselves were a veritable revelation…pretty as a picture, full of interesting old cottages, splendid pubs, three small beaches, views in the bay of yachts and large freighters (presumably waiting their turn to enter the Plymouth docks), and also, as I found out later, a Dutch frigate, a German frigate and a US Fleet supply ship….Having parked in Cawsand we walked through to Kingsand and exiting that via the beach we entered Mount Edgcumbe Park, sat on a bench to admire a bank behind us full of daffodils in bloom and the bay spread out in front of us, and walked towards two large birds of prey ensconced in the trees above us…now, having got home, clearly identified as buzzards, always a magnificent sight. We hit very lucky for lunch as we ignored the cafes with sea views (fine though they looked) and decided on The Old Bakery. We couldn’t rate it more highly…lovely toasted sandwiches with the most amazing sourdough bread. The bread itself had all sold out otherwise we would have stocked up, and although Monday night is artisan pizza night, we couldn’t stay til 5.30pm ( but can’t wait for when we can ). We took the minor coastal road on the way back and stopped at Downderry where we had a wander on the beach doing a bit of beach combing, another lovely place worth a re-visit…the places to revisit are coming in thick and fast!
