The day started with the dreaded interval session. This was a hardcore session for a number of reasons:-
1⃣The weather was yucky
2⃣I had madam with me
3⃣Madam has long lean legs, that go fast- I don’t
4⃣It was bin day, this meant dodging the bin men and lorry
5⃣Everyone was walking their dogs
10 times 200 metres done
Today, we decided to do three activities that we have done before.
1⃣HeartlandsThis is on an old tin mine site, the last tin mine to close in the UK, in1996. I was keen to go back here to see how the gardens have developed. There are 5 gardens here to recognise the countries Cornwall miners went to work in, North America, South America, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. I love these gardens, their stones with engravings and information boards.
2⃣Cornwall Gold used to be called Treasure Park, not a brilliant place to be honest, but Madam was keen to return there to see if she could pick out a diamond from the sand. She tried twice, but didn’t, useless child!
3⃣Healeys Cyder Farmthe biggest disappointment here was NO highland cow! Free cider samples though made up for this. My favourite the Rum Reserve Cider ‘This special edition cyder is matured in large Jamaican Rum hogshead barrels. The rich and warming rum aromas blend perfectly with the sweet tropical fruits and nutty oak flavours of our cyder.’, yummy!
The day did not turn out too bad, so we headed to the beach before dinner. The red flag was flying , so no surfing allowed, the conditions too dangerous, so instead we played bat and ball.
