Sunday morning but we went to church last night so slept late and then took a walk around our lovely grounds. They have a lot of very happy and fluffy chickens, a pond and beautiful gardens. I had texted Miner’s Arms for a reservation but hadn’t heard from them. Gary told us the local mobile phone provider is down but their land-line works and they offered it to us if we needed it. Fortunately I have my computer so we can email family if necessary, and since my phone isn’t working, I asked Fiona to call the Miner’s Arms for us. She did and they did get my text so we had a reservation.

Around noon we drove to Mithian and easily found Miner’s Arms. We ordered the Sunday roast. Ed got the beef and I got the lamb. Both were delicious and very filling. It was a busy, fun pub and the staff were all terrific. Good choice. They also have a great beer garden and a little store in the Inn with juice, milk, cheese and quite a few other necessities. Very convenient. Miner’s Arms, Mithian, Saint Agnes TR5 0QF; tel: +44 (0)1872 552375; info@miners-arms.co.uk; Web Site for Miner's Arms Pub

Decided to drive to Trerice House near Newquay and set off up the road . . . always exciting in Cornwall. Arrived, parked (free) and entered using our National Trust cards. Lots of little lambs posing for photos and lovely gardens. The docents were interesting as most on this trip seem to be. Most fascinating was the collection of grandfather clocks . . . seventeen of them. There were also other smaller clocks . . . fascinating. My father who collected grandfather clocks (and a few others) would have loved it. I hope someone is taking care of all his clock collection.

We drove to Morrison’s for groceries and arrived just as they closed. That necessitated driving into central Newquay to ASDA Supermarket to get supplies for the week, but it worked. We have food.

Spent the evening catching up on Sandi’s American Watercolor Society (AWS) schedules, having cider, cheese and crackers on our patio, and Ed is doing a laundry. Another sunny day except for fog in Newquay.

Thank you Sarah. We loved the custom of a Sunday roast and enjoyed one every Sunday we were there. It all seemed so friendly and everyone was so cheerful. The food everyplace we tried one was excellent. I usually got the lamb and Ed got the beef. Great fun.
