Whilst holidaying at Coombe Mill, we went on many day trips (see previous post about Adrenaline Quarry). One of these was to Lands End. Somewhere that none of us had never been before. We chose to go on the same day that they had an air sea rescue event, as then there would be more to do.
Yes, sad as it sounds, we love a good tombola! And on this day, we won two books and a notebook and pencil! There were a good few fundraising stalls and a lovely community feel.
We watched the rescue helicopter take off and then go on to perform an air sea rescue display. It was great to watch.
We strolled down the first and last house in England, to have a wander around the souvenir shop, buy some postcards for the girl’s memory boxes, and of course, buy some true Cornish ice cream! From here we admired the view and read up on what all the landmarks on the horizon were called.
Next we went on to the park, so Bunny could play, whilst the twins had lunch. We’d been picking at a picnic whilst walking along, but I just had to have some chips too!
Once playtime was over, Bunny had a go at standing on a surf machine. She lasted all of 9 seconds. That was her best of three attempts. It was funny though.
We also went into the 4D cinema to watch (and feel) 20000 leagues under the sea. Jonny, the Twins and I, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Bunny, however, wasn’t impressed that the seats kept moving!
We didn’t get a photo with the famous Lands End sign, because we felt that £10 was a lot of money for a photo, especially as you couldn’t even get a digital copy of it.
We did easily manage to fill a good three hours at Lands End and had a lovely day out. The scenery was beautiful and I think it was worth the drive. It’s one of those places that I’m pleased to be able to say, “I’ve been there!”.
