Today we are down in the romantic Helford River Estuary, visiting the National Trust garden of ‘Glendurgan’. After having had our member’s cards examined first to park the car and then at the entry point, we were allowed in. This system was holding up cars to be parked and everything was backing up along the drive, but the NT seems to like doing this sort of thing.
Anyway once we were in Glendurgan it was, of course, lovely with all the spring flowers out. R greatly enjoyed the maze and ‘prehistoric’ tree ferns. The NT team also had a nice set of bird spotting cards for children to take with them too. R enjoyed the maze so much that we had to go around it twice.

The nice thing about Glendurgan is that you can walk out of the bottom of the gardens down into Durgan village, which is on the shore of the Helford Estuary.

It being low tide we traversed around the rocks of Durgan beach to the quieter Grebe beach and had our lunch there – sketching Toll Point and the mouth of the Helford River with watercolour washes and pen.
