Around Penzance

Our annual holiday with Alison and Nic, Emma and co. was this year spent camping close to the tip of Cornwall. The campsite, Noongallas, was perfect - owners John and Kay were as friendly and helpful as could be, gave us produce from their garden, lent us body boards to surf with and organised parties where excellent local ska/funk/hip-hop band Prime Skandal played and free homity pies were on offer. The local countryside and beaches were beautiful, relaxed and sunny. The locals were more welcoming than anywhere else in Britain. And the Cornish light, beloved of artists, also made for the occasional half-decent photograph.
