Day Out with the 5's

Twelve MX-5's met at St Austell and set off for a lovely day out driving around the lanes of Cornwall.

We stopped at Lanhydrock for coffee and set off again crossing Bodmin Moor before a quick stop at Golitha Falls car park ...

prior to arriving at The London Inn, St Neot for lunch ...

Weather-wise it was a disappointing morning because the run had been done last October when there was thick fog and everyone had requested a re-run as the views over the moor should be spectacular. We were hoping for a sunny day but at least it wasn't foggy and we could see all the lakes and animals. Unfortunately all my photos came out much too dark to reproduce so there's not much to show on here.

After lunch the sun shone while we drove the short distance to Siblyback Lake for a cuppa - such a shame it hadn't shone in the morning.

On the way home we drove back up one of the roads we'd driven earlier so that I could get a photo of just a small bunch of primroses and some spring lambs. We'd seen so many bluebells and primroses - they seem to be in abundance this year.
