Summer Road Trip – Diary – Day Six – Lands End, St Michaels Mount.

Today’s adventure involved a trip on a bus. The community bus stops right outside the Campsite.

You can’t come to Cornwall without visiting lands end can you? We decided that we would head to the famous landmark on public transport today.

The community bus was fab. Just a little 16 seater minibus ran by volunteers. The driver was very friendly and helped us aboard with or million children.

Lands End

There are lots of things to do once at the landmark. Most things are extra to the car park fee, though we didnt pay as we came on the bus. I had seen on the website an Aardman Animations exhibition which I did want to go and have a look at. I was surprised by how good the exhibit was. We also paid for a photo underneath the famous sign. Well you’ve got to haven’t you?

Then before catching the bus home we had a bite to eat. They were huge portions but as you would expect for a tourist attraction the prices we quite steep.

Back on the bus and to the motorhome for a bit of an afternoon nap.

After naptime its time to head back out again for a trusty old mcdonalds and a trip to St Michaels Mount. We got there at just the right time for the tide coming in so we got to see the slipway disappear under the tide. Afterwards a trip to the play park to burn off energy before bedtime.

St Michaels Mount and the island is actually closed on a saturday but you can still head across the causeway or climb the rock on the beach for a view of the causeway from above.

We drove all the way back to the campsite and then remembered we had no milk. Unfortunately the only shop was back in the town where we had just been so we had to turn around and go back. I can’t live without my morning cuppa.
