Penzance today where we visit Penlee Gallery with its collection of Newlyn school paintings. Lunch is in Mousehole, and then on to the standing stone circle, the Merry Maidens. Our final call will be Porthcurno, with a choice, the Museum of Submarine Telegraphy (Victorian internet), the Minack Theatre museum, or just sitting on the beach, gazing at the turquoise sea.
To the most southerly point today via the eclectic Folk Museum in Helston (home to the Flora Dance), to Coverack for our lunch stop, with its fascinating geology and tales of shipwrecks, and then to Lizard Town from where we can walk down to Lizard Point at 49° 57' 30" N, and maybe peek at the elusive Cornish Chough.
Wednesday: Free day for exploration of St Ives with its art galleries and tea shoppes. Perhaps travel further afield to Eden, visit any of the famous gardens, make a pilgrimage to St Michael’s Mount or just relax and swim at Chy Morvah.

Thatch and cob are not normally associated with Cornish buildings; however, at Come to Good, there is a delightful Friends Meeting House. Then on to the lush gardens at Trelissick and afterwards a ferry hop across to the Roseland peninsula for lunch at St Just. Taking another ferry from St Mawes, we glimpse the fine castles guarding the entrance to the Carrick Roads. We then take our final Cornish tea together, finishing our week of visits.
