High Tea - Cornish Style

Today we headed off to Cornwall in the South West of England for a taste of something new... and taste something new we did.  We arrived a little after 1pm to find the entrance all done up for a party in honour of the Royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine.  We were invited to join other caravanner's for a High Tea celebration between 3 and 5pm.  We hadn't experienced an English High Tea yet and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Matt has a ride on Darian's scooter... vroom vroom!

After we set up camp we headed up to join the others for lovely English sandwiches and a glass of Pimms, followed by Scones with jam and cream (Cornish Style).  Delicious!  We toasted the happy Royal couple and enjoyed the company of other like minded people.  How civilized!

After letting our hair down we headed back to the van for a coffee (to wake up from the Pimms) and a very relaxing first evening in Cornwal.

On tomorrow's agenda:  Land's End ... and somewhere, a taste of traditional 'Cornish Pasties'... maybe even Cornish Ice cream.  I almost feel like Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) when she was in Rome tasting all the amazing foods there ... very soul lifting experience!  Cheers!
