I now expected Graham J and Julie but I was pleasantly surprised when Andy P arrived.
Again with encouragement, I stuck to my original route to Cotehele, taking us through the Tamar valley, which was brightened up with all the daffodils out (see pics). At Cotehele, we were able to warm our hands and feet and enjoy a pleasant stop at the restaurant / cafe, in the grounds of the House. Then afterwards, onwards and upwards, towards Kelly Bray and the next stop at the Engine house cafe, where we found ourselves a table, despite it being busy with people celebrating Mothers Sunday!
Kelly Bray was the next port of call, then dropping down to Newbridge, there we had to make a decision, whether to have a look at the Cadsonbury hill fort or continue on our way back and leave the fort for a better day, the second option was carried. There was a very steep climb straight away and Graham said his goodbyes because he was going to walk up the hill, so soon after we were surprised when Graham streaked by at a rate of knots and disappeared into the distance and never again seen that day!!?
Julie and myself rode on at a more leisurely pace, passing through Amytree, Saltash and over the Tamar Bridge and then soon after I said my goodbyes to Julie and wish her a enjoyable evening celebrating Mothers Day with her son.
