There's something so wonderful about a country fair, with the heady scent of steam and an old school funfair. We ventured north along the coast towards Padstow for the annual vintage rally.
One after another, vintage steam engines of all sizes entered the ring. The highlight had to be 'Whistling Billy', a steam powered car from 1905.
Next we were treated to a falconry display, where a barn owl and gyr falcon swooped high above us, performing tricks. Shortly after this we were doorstepped by Radio Cornwall, and broadcast live to the county... how kind of them!
Food stalls lined the perimeter, accompanied by a model village and a bunting laden marquee featuring rare breeds and traditional crafts, including spinning and weaving.
