Great Western Trains have upped First Class – new carriages – gone are the days of nice lunches on the Paddington route to Cornwall, our destination St. Austell, a small Victorian station being brutally modernised.
I waited for my hire car in the nastiest of cafes, gyrating round derelicts, no less than six, clutching vodka bottles.
Deep fog had
greeted our arrival but luckily the next morning St. Mawes revealed itself in
all its prettiness and the Cornish skies with clouds and bursts of sunshine
were as I had remembered.
An enchanting place.
