An impromptu mission to Cornwall this week started with a stop off at Weston Super Mare to make the most of the 20mph sea breeze which had kicked in. Kitesurfing till dark was the hangover cure I needed after a heavy stag do in Wales. I was hitting the road with Mark for the first time in a few years. This time in his all singing all dancing Merc Sprinter camper conversion.
We stayed around Gwithian getting a bit of a kitesurf and bike session in the first day. The next day we took a drive to Marazion to see Loz at Ocean High and went for a paddle around St Michaels Mount. The wind was not as good as we had hoped but it was great to just swim in the sea, hang out, take photos of the sun set and get some camp food on the go.
We made another social call on the way home – checking in on Dom in Newquay and his snazzy new base at the Headland Hotel.
Cornwall is not that far and well worth a few hours drive – I dont know why I dont go more often!
