Glendurgan Gardens

The plan for today was to go up to the Lost Gardens of Heligan (a dog UN-friendly place) with Sally-Ann and Mike.
Unfortunately after yesterday's events, Hamish was feeling the need for some love from his mommy and daddy. He had managed to work himself up while we were out and had made himself poorly. They did not dare to leave him today as well.
We were now two! We decided that we would change our plans and go to Glendurgan instead. This is very local to us from home, and we knew that Fred would not mind us being out again. It would give him time to catch up on his doggy sleep!
Today has been really muggy. The skies were blue and it was quite windy. I went prepared for every eventuality. Vest top, under long sleeved top, under full hooded jacket!!!!!
By the time we had walked through the entrance and down towards the maze, my coat had been pushed through the straps of my rucksack, on my back.

and before we had got much further, the long sleeved top had been removed too!

These gardens are remarkably steep, and because of this there are benches every few meters, all of which have spectacular views over the gardens and Helford Estuary

The afternoon was incredibly hot, the skies got bluer and despite the terrible steep slopes of the gardens, we had a great time.

The walk down to the beach gave us some much needed breeze from the water

Then it was back up the slopes and through the gardens once more. The tea shop with its cakes, was calling our name (Sorry Matron, Don't shout at me!)

The climb back as well worth the prize..... treacle tart and clotted cream. Mmmmmm!
