Cheers chaps.its the first time ive had the car out.rain rain rain.and its coming again .lovely roads and some nice places to go.makes a change from up north i suppose.cant wait for summer.we went to mevagissi it was nice a d sunny.then made our way to perranporth on the other side of the coast and it hammered down.i was glad really as it probably washed the salt off the underside from the trip down from oldham.all dried off now.

I love Perranporth, one of my favorite places in Cornwall. I used to stay in the Headland hotel which was just across the road from where you were parked. Superb view across the beach, even better in the sun and with the tide out.

Capri looks great with that as a backdrop.

The beautiful scenery makes a great backdrop. My eye is definitely drawn to the stunning Capri in the foreground though! :D

I've just looked up the word immaculate in the dictionary. There was no description underneath, only a photo of Mel's beautiful car! :D
