Hugh and I did in fact arrive in Cornwall yesterday afternoon allowing us enough time to take a wander around our hosts dairy farm, before heading off to the Victoria for a fine carvery.

Royal Cornwall Show
Andy knew them all, and each of them welcomed us to
Cream Teas, Ploughman's Lunch, Pimms, Cakes, Fruit etc, etc.
whittled down to just two.
This Austin Healey 3000 reminded me of my fastest 'hitch' from home in Portland back to HMS Victory Barracks back in the 60's. Leaving Easton Square at midnight the first pick up was to Top 'o' Town Dorchester in such a car, followed by an even faster run right to the barracks gates in a Mini Cooper S driven by a Surgeon Commander from HMS Bellerophon. Time 1hour 37 minutes on roads that were far less driver friendly than today.
The end of our show then off to
where we unanimously agreed that the fare was some of the 'very best' Pub Grub we had ever eaten. A terrific Bouillabaisse (fish medley) followed by Chocolate Nemesis.
A fantastic day out thanks to Hugh and Andy.
