Monday 7th June 1965
Trevone today, where we had a heavy lunchtime shower, but a beautiful afternoon which we spent in the sea. Cyril took the car to a garage, but the Proprietor couldn’t find the fault. We’ve given the car an easy day so perhaps it will be all right now!
Tuesday 8th June 1965
Another day and more rain! We have managed a Swim at Daymer Bay – but we had to leave soon after three as it was raining and miserable. Children both enjoying themselves though.
Wednesday 9th June 1965
Joan & Fred’s 20th Wedding Anniversary – which I forgot after all and sent their card a day late!
We had an hour in Newquay this morning then went on to Crantock beach where we cooked our lunch. Have had a very tiring afternoon at the Royal Cornwall Show. No rain today.
Thursday 10th June 1965
Our best day so far – we’ve had a lovely time at Daymer Bay – plenty of swimming and fun in the water. Afterwards, about 4:30, we went for a long walk and had a look at an old church and got home about ten past six. All caught the sun today. Let’s hope we have another one tomorrow!
(I think the church we visited would have been St Enodoc, which is now best known as the resting place of Sir John Betjeman).
Friday 11th June 1965
A let down today – we went to Daymer hoping for another swim – but it’s been too cold and windy. We’ve spent the day walking and rock climbing. Had quite a good time, but came home early as rain set in.
Saturday 12th June 1965
At least it’s kept dry today and we’ve been out all day – on the beach at Carlyon Bay, on to the harbour at Charlestown then to Mevagissey. Only 55 miles in all and we’ve had a very pleasant day. No bathing though! Oh – we shopped in Bodmin en route – and did very well for homemade pies etc at a W.I produce stall.
Sunday 13th June 1965
It’s really been a scorcher today and we’re all sunburnt. We’ve spent the whole day at Daymer – in the water and have had great fun – marred by a slight annoying accident this morning when a fellow in an Alfa Romeo hit us and gave us a dent in the bumper, Frightened Gill and Phil!
