The weather looked promising this morning, and we wanted to make the most of the day, so decided that we might drive over to Trelissick Gardens for a wander through the grounds.
On entry via the National Trusts office, we were told that the Arial Motocross Bike Club was exhibiting in the stable block, and so we headed on round for a looky-loo
The club members were very welcoming, and allowed us to look over their precious bikes as our leisure, and answered any questions that we had, and Paul had many of course!
Then it was time to wander through the gardens
and then Paul spotted what looked like a big poo!
It turned out to be a beautifully carved ram sculpture!
We wandered for a fair while, before coming across this wisteria covered bridge to walk over. We then realised that this was the bridge that we had walked under the last time we came over to Trelissick.
The winter weather had obviously taken it’s toll on the gardens as you can see by the temporary brace that had strapped to these two trees!
Having walked our little legs off, we then stopped off at the cafe for some spicy carrot and coriander soup with a roll, and some natural lemon and ginger soda.
We wandered the gift shop before leaving and then decided to divert to Restronguet point before we headed home
above, you can see the remains of the beautiful Pandora Inn that was destroyed by fire a few months ago. It is shrouded with scaffold and sheeting for the restoration work to take place.
Paul enjoyed the view up the river, and watched the canoes as they headed up river.
What a lovely day.
