Another Valentine Another Landmark

This time we stayed in the second floor apartment of the Egyptian House in Penzance. Can be viewed as snapped or as the traditional completed Landmark jigsaw. It's also traditional to write up your stay in the Landmark big green log book. Strangest coincidence when purusing a few entries back friends of ours - Helen, Clive and Muriel - had stayed in the same apartment just months before.

Having endured winter snow it was uncommonly spring like in the main. The one exception was clinging onto a hilltop cliff in Cape Cornwall in a v high wind. 

As spring arrives first in Cornwall there was a profusion no only of snowdrops and daffodils but also magnolia and some rhodies.

Penzance has a great collection of real ale/food pubs - and we were stopping over the road from some - can well recommend the Admiral Benbow and the Turks Head, and surprisingly enough Weatherspoons do a very passable breakie. The area also has a good affordable integrated transport system.

As well as the traditional harbourside and St Michaels Mount 

we thoroughly recommend the new garden at Tremenheere. Along the lines of Heligan with sculptures and a river running though it.

and the more established garden at Trewidden

Cornwall is just littered with beautiful and interesting villages (Mousehole, Launceston et al), settlements and standing stones:

We didn't make the trip to the Mount from Marizion but caught this footage of the amphibian crossing the causeway
