Cornwall I.

5-2-18 PENZANCE, CORNWALL, UNITED KINGDOM: We flew from EWR Tuesday evening, got a little sleep on the plane, waited in an interminable line to get through passport control, found Avis and our rental, dialed the address into the GPS, and headed southwest away from Heathrow.

The trip was good, 300 miles or so, except for an hour lost to a closure on the M5 that had us wandering around Devon for a while. Sitting on the right side of the car and driving on the left side of the road is an adventure.

We got to Penzance, checked in and collapsed until dinner. More about the town, B & B, and restaurant later.

The view from our room at Chapel House on Chapel St. That's Penzance Harbor with lots of sailboats.

Also from our room, Saint Michael's Mount is built on a granite outcrop in the harbor. It's cut off from the mainland at high tide. Doesn't that sound like someplace else not too far from here?

Judy on Chapel St. after our dinner at Black's Restaurant.

Old stone church on the waterfront.
