1st July

After a bacon sandwich we set off to visit the Monkey Sanctuary at No Man’s Land. We watched the monkeys and chatted to the keepers who live in a commune there, so that they are with the monkeys full time. As we sat watching the sea and drinking coffee at the café, one of the keepers was spreading something on leaves for the monkeys, I asked what it was and he replied "apple and pear conserve, a Sunday treat, as the monkeys all love it!" We had a walk in their woods and garden then watched the monkeys enjoy their jam on trees. 

We drove down to Portwrinkle and had cream tea in the garden of the hotel with a lovely view of the sea. We were the only people there: it was very quiet and relaxed. 

treesDeerArriving back at Swiss Cottage about 5.20pm, we eat Cornish pasties for dinner, and relax with the wine and the view. At about 9pm a herd of deer with their young waded across the river below us. It was a beautiful sight.
