Where I stayed
Beach side.

It seemed like we, as well as a couple of other campervans all tried our luck with parking on the beach side. This to us seemed very confusing as there appeared to be 2 pay park areas on each side. We all agreed that there was safety in numbers & took the gamble. Might I add; The island that the St. Michael castle stood on rose directly out our window across the surf!

The gamble continued well into the next morning as we walked down the beach to catch out little boat, which would take us out to the island. (Apparently at low tide you are able to walk out to it via a long sand bar, but otherwise 99% of the time you paid the boat guy…)

This castle fortress was amazing; it had seen itself in two sieges and was it's own little self-sufficient county. Cannons lined the battlements and "murderholes" decorated the walls!

There was a mysterious 7’10” giant’s body excavated from the bowels of the 10th century church which is surrounded in myth and intrigue, We think it was just someone they had put on the racks to stretch him out!

Afterwards we drove out to “Land’s End”. The end of England. Cornwall is interesting because it is so stony and old and filled with prehistoric and pirate legend.

One cool thing was seeing a church, which as established 520AD. Too bad it just looked like the last one.

We then kept driving until we set up camp outside of St. Ives. Everything here is made of stone. There are no trees, just rocks and lots of grass. Some of which have ravenous cows that like to run after Joel, he was scared. (they mustn’t be used to seeing things which aren’t made of rock or grass).
