    Have a great time.
    It doesn't matter if its cold if you've got all your thermals and fleeces , hats and gloves.
    I'm sure you will have a fantastic time down there.
    I love it if theres frost and bright sunshine , this time of year. Especially at the coast.
    Its so much better than the other option , wet and grey .
    We're off on our first funsters meet to sunny Scunny this weekend. Looking forward to it too.
    Our 3 are off school next week , id love to be going to Cornwall with them , but Ralphs very busy with work.
    Considering that hes a builder , we are very lucky.
    So we are going to have to stick to the weekends till the May school break.

    The sun is out, the sky is blue! May be a little nippy whip at night, and fresh daytime, but warm in the sun!

    As for decent pasties - ask the locals!! The usual suspects that are bought by tourists, the locals wouldn't touch!

    Jewells in Newlyn is the best fish and chip shop I have ever found :thumb: Fried in proper Yorkshire dripping - none of your poncey southern vegetable oils :Wink:

    Lol! There is one in Bugle too, fried in Lard, and wrapped in newspaper - always heaving too! Which shows people prefer the good old fashioned methods!
