It has been a bit of a culinary month for Mrs. B&B and I. We have picked our first crab, quite a task first time round but it was worth the effort as Mrs. B&B created a wonderful seafood bisque. We were then fortunate to be able to spend a long weekend in Padstow where we sampled the delights of Paul Ainsworth’s No.6 restaurant and then Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant. Both were superb but for us Rick Steins was a slightly better experience.

Whilst at Padstow we managed to get out to do some walking. The first day we completed the town walk, taking in Prideaux Place and St.Petroc’s church. The following day we took the ferry to Rock and walked to St,Enodoc’s church on the coast path which is out by the golf course. This church has an unusual crooked spire. From there we walked across the golf course back to Rock for a quick drink in The Mariners and onto lunch at The Upper Deck before catching the ferry back to Padstow. Before heading home on Monday we drove to Pentire Farm near Polzeath and did the Pentire Point and The Rumps walk. This was a much more testing trek on a warm overcast day and we were both happy to get back to the car for a rest. In all we walked close to 20 miles over the three days, a lot for us, but we consumed a whole lot of calories, so I probably put on a few pounds. Never mind.

Earlier in the month as part of Mrs. B&B’s early birthday celebrations we went to see Take That at Home Park, Plymouth. She had wanted to see them for years and so has now managed to cross them off her list. As a bit of a bonus I managed to get tickets for us to see Tom Jones at Plymouth Hoe, at 84 he can still belt it out. We spent my birthday at Polperro for a few drinks and a meal in The Blue Peter. It really was a beautiful, relaxed day, just what I wanted, so, thanks Mrs. B&B.

The Looe Raft Race took place on the 16th. and once again turned out to be a really good fun day. We spent it with friends, our returning guests Vicky and Gary. Always good fun to have them visit us. Don’t forget there are still numerous events going on in the next couple of months, Looe Carnival at the end of July, Duloe Ale and Cider Festival, Looe Food Festival and Looe Weekender will all take place in September. Why not check our availability and get yourself down to Looe to catch some of these events. As we always say book direct for best price.

The guitarist who replaced Brian Jones in The Stones Line up was of course Mick Taylor. This time can you tell me whereMuse hail from?

No t shirt this time but my “whacky” Beatles short sleeved shirt is being worn!
