Tom decided we would have a holiday this year.
We are going to spend one week down on the farm.
It should be quite nice there in mid-June,
and lots to do in the local area.
Like slopping pigs, feeding chickens, planting crops??
THAT's a vacation????
Are these Cornish hens?
Hahahaha. I might cook a few eggs for breakfast,
but that will be as close as I get to a live chicken.
I hope to be able to have a swim & Jacuzzi every morning
while Tom is getting up, then off to the Eden Centre
or a quaint little village for the day.
I told Renor (the carer coming with us) that he has to
cook dinner alternate nights and we will eat out on my nights.
Here's a farm like you've never imagined a farm . . .
There is a festival of arts on the week we will be there,
with crafts, folk music, food and folk dance.
Mind you, I'm not keen on Morris dancing,
[which is defined HERE and can be seen HERE],
but lunch in the pub will be nice.
Daphne Du Maurier wrote almost all her novels here
I would like to visit Daphne du Maurier's House
[which they could even buy HERE]
and that area as well;
I will have to take one of her books
to read on holiday. I loved the film Rebecca.
Then there's lunch at the
Legendary JAMAICA INN,
Cornwall's Most Famous
Smuggling Inn, HERE;
the EDEN PROJECT's geodesic domes,
where you can see how chocolate is grown;
I hope they have some samples to try HERE;
and Tom will want to go to TINTAGEL CASTLE,
as King Arthur & his knights
are his heroes,
HERE and HERE.
There are fishing villages to visit, seen HERE
and places to eat, seen HERE.
On 10 March, Jackie continues:
I was listening on the radio last week to an interview with Judy Finnigan [available HERE].
I have been trying to contact her or her husband about my book
because WH Smiths stocks all their book club recommendations.
She mentions a hotel in Cornwall and guess what?
It's seven miles from where we will be on holiday.
I will be leaving a copy of my book there for her attention.
Tom will be told we are just visiting
this pretty little bay, TALLAND BAY BEACH.

Just where in the United Kingdom is Cornwall?
As Jackie & Tom live in Cambridgeshire . . .
. . . it'll be a seven-hour
cross-country jaunt for them.
Of course, as Jackie & Tom's CyberFriends,
we are all invited along on their HOLIDAY IN CORNWALL.
