"It's very nice to go trav'ling
But it's oh so nice to come home"
(Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen)

What a gorgeous view. Although I won`t get there tomorrow, you can be very sure that I will at least once in the next week during our stay in Cadgwith. This is Porth Kidney sands, just behind Lelant in the far west of Cornwall, as viewed from the adjacent Carbis Bay. It`s one of those places which is a bit hard to find, but once you have it really is worth it. A seemingly endless beach, where dogs are unusually allowed so Henry will be happy, and one which is never `busy` - there`s just too much room and just a little secrecy about it for that.

So, dear reader, tomorrow we set off on the 350 miles drive along the A20, M26, M25, M3, A303, A30, down alomost to Lelant, then along the coast road to Helston before dropping down onto the Lizard Peninsula and finally arriving at Cadgwith.

The forecast is good, the scenery unsurpassed, the coast path walking always interesting, the local fresh fish, the home-made pasties, the clean sea air. Who could ask for anything more?

Cornwall is a magic land, a place apart and it will be a privilege once again to be part of it for a while. But, as Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen said in their immortal song, it`s oh so nice to come home.
