Day 302 Admin Day at St Ives

Thursday 2 June 2016

Rest day

Ayr Holiday Park, St Ives

I got caught speeding; I walk too fast. I really did get caught speeding back in March in a borrowed car (mine is off the road). After a lot of guesstimating where I would be when, I booked a speed awareness course today in Camborne. Fortunately I managed to work it so I could be in St Ives and get a bus to Camborne. It was a lot of faff but I saved myself 3 points and had a useful refresher on the Highway Code. 

It was a lovely morning and I spent it relaxing outside the cafe on the campsite. I took the opportunity to do some planning (thinking ahead to visiting the Isles of Scilly).

I caught the bus to Camborne, did the course, paid my penance and got the bus back to St Ives in the evening. 

After missing lunch I was in need of a hearty dinner. I wasn’t in the mood to fight the queues in the sea front so picked a pub a few streets back.

    Excellent planning! I would expect no less from you, Lucy! – And as of this afternoon’s ‘Ramblings’ you’re trending on Radio 4, for 15:00hrs, Thurs 9.2.16. 🙂

      Oh dear. I’m not sure I want to be ‘trending’. Hopefully there’s football or something else on that day. You’ll be pleased to know I have learned to do a lot less planning, but I have also learned that some planning is very helpful. X

    Nothing like a little concurrent activity….shame you had to waste a day being lectured at.

    Looking back to this time last year you are experiencing such a contrast from your East Coast memories…with the exception of Southend, these beaches are packed as are the coastal paths.

    You have been blessed with the most glorious weather for this section of your trip. Long may the beautiful weather continue.

    On on Juice…..

    Hi ‘Speedy Gonzalez’ I had no idea you were so fast!
    It looks like the good weather in the west is set to continue however here in Kew we have slipped
    back into Winter. Keep on keeping on. Val x
