North Cornwall Tootling About

Last night with the awning attached and the light on in the camper van.
The view from the van this morning. 
We went out to Padstow and Rock, and decided that basing ourselves in a field for the afternoon was by far the best option.  I decided to go for a walk to see if St Issey really is a one-horse town. Didn't find any horses at all, but did see some cows.
Sheep in evidence as well, along with the wind farm on the skyline.
The end of the flowering season for this foxglove in the hedgerow. 
Ragwort rampant. 
High drama at the St Issey road/works-block 
Found the church, with ornate kissing gate decorations. 
The only way I could photograph this sign was to tread down the grass:-) 
All the gravestones were very tidily arranged, making me wonder if they had been reorganised.
St Issey's has had a church since about the 8th century.
Maybe I should try putting a box like this up in our front garden? 
Part of the village's Britain in Bloom submission, complete with cabbages 
Doing well to get to the final 80 - results come out in October.
Is this part of the submission?
Aptly named road …
The other side of the road and another bicycle. 
Not sure about Fat Cat patrols! 
Old cottages back off the main road.
Walking back to the campsite, saw this rusted emblem on an old shed - perhaps a former pigsty? 
Where we are camping - WiFi in the pub (where I am composing this over a beer).
Camping in the field behind the pub with views over Padstow and Rock, with a swimming pool we have the use of…
There are at least two skylarks up there somewhere! 
This day a year ago, we took a day trip on the Poseidon from Yialos around the island of Symi, stopping at Sesklia for a very tasty barbecue lunch.
