Perranporth is said to be the gateway to Cornwall's stunning beaches and also a hub for surfers.
It was still quite early, not quite 10.00am as many places were still closed.Good 2 Go one of the vegetarian - vegan places I wanted to eat at was sadly closed or maybe we were just too early.
We decided to get back into the car and drive on to the next places, before we knew it D took an impromptu break for an Americana and I, along with my mother in law opted for a latte. We stopped at Genki Cornwall a little white beach hut in St Agnes. Genki means 'health and happiness' in Japanese. It was really busy with cyclists, some getting their sweet cake fix. The above sign made us chuckle.
A fleeting visit to rainy St Agnes and then it was onto Penzance
Next Penzance town centre
I was looking forward to having some lunch at Archie Browns in Penzance. but it was closed. So we opted for a placed we walked past earlier.
The Cornish Hen Deli and it did not disappoint.
Although not a vegetarian place, it had loads of vegetarian and vegan options.
Our last and final visit for the day was a National Trust property in Marazion called St Michaels Mount, but the weather had just got worse and neither of us were feeling adventourous.
You see, on low tide days, you can walk to St Michaels Mount from the beachfront via a cobbled causeway, but not today with the blustery weather and high tides.
We could have taken the motorboat, but D didn't fancy that saying we would come back another day and visit, but sadly this did not happen as we got distracted with other places to see and explore.

It had been a very long day driving for D and getting wet in the rain was making some of us grumpy, so we headed back to our temporary abode for warmth and shelter from the constant rain.
