May Day

May 6, 2013

We crossed the Tamar again today – this time via the Torpoint ferry (we had intended to use the rather lovely Cremyll ferry, which is a foot ferry, but there were  huge queues). The Torpoint Ferry has its charms too, but it’s much further away from  Mount Edgcumbe which was our destination.

edgcumbThe sunshine was  glorious (again!) even though it’s a bank holiday and we walked around the gardens and looked at the National Collection of Camellias and climbed the folly and gazed out to sea and at Plymouth – which looks strangely out of place on the opposite bank.

By the time we’d done this we were ready for an ice cream, but I forgot to take a picture. Pity; they were good looking ice creams – chocolate ice cream in chocolate-dipped, sugar cones with chocolate sauce in one case.

Some of us meandered up the hill towards the house while others raced up and then rolled down.  A thick mist enveloped us as we left Mount Edgecumbe and persisted until we got to Torpoint, but eventually we crossed over the Tamar.  It was very busy and there were queues.

We thought we’d have a look at the Hoe and the view, but the mist had found its way to the Sound and was sitting there covering everything in a chilly blanket. Invisible boats were sounding horns quite eerily in the whiteness covering the sea.

So we headed to the Barbican and to Cap’n Jaspers. The sun was peaking through the mist by this time and we had burgers with onions, cheese, salad and lots of sauces to get ourselves sticky. We were all so hungry that no photos of the food were taken.


Some food blog this is.
