So here we go. Early start 6 of us in a big vehicle on our way to enjoy Cornwall. Can anyone recommend anywhere nice?

We’ll be stopping at many petrol stations en route to handle the nozzle but beware of Michelle she’s got a bit of a cough. Nothing to worry about though.

It's too early for this sarcasm OP. grin

Nooooo! Obviously I appreciate your post is a joke, but I cried last night when I realised the impact of his ‘go where you like’ statement. We live in the South West and it’s what we are all dreading. Why oh why didn’t he put a 20 mile zone around your travel (part from essential like work etc)

Make sure you sit on all the benches along the way and close all the gates after you have swum in the pond.

TJH130 Mon 11-May-20 06:20:17

Ah yes forgot benches any one know where there’s a lot really close to peoples gardens?

and you need to wait until Wednesday!

Yes and remember to pop to the supermarket when you arrive to buy lots of loo roll as you will need to use it when you take a poo behind a bush as the pubic toilets are all closed.

Fuck waiting til Wednesday. All the papers said it was today. And we know they never lie. Bit like the government really.

Room for one more op? Pick me up on the way through....

Bloody hell, Adele's looking good isn't she.

We're hoping to go sailing soon seeing as outdoor watersports are now allowed

People won’t be able to travel to Cornwall. There is no petrol at the forecourts. Due to the drop in vehicle travel, fuel tankers were converted to carry other bulk products in high demand such as sanitising gels, gin and processed flour. It will take at least until 7 September to reconvert them to fuel carriers.

They have given us a bit of freedom and it's up to us to be sensible .But as usual we will be fucked by selfish peolpe who wern't following the last set of rules.

Orangeblossom78 Mon 11-May-20 06:53:13

People do go to petrol stations everywhere for fuel, not just en route to the beach!

also I'm sure they are able to fill up before they travel...

pirateparker Mon 11-May-20 06:57:01

Please no no no! I’ve loved having the beach all to myself!! Lots of locals already hating the grockles... watch out!

Biscuit0110 Mon 11-May-20 06:58:26

I am coming too! I have some biscuits to share and a thermal ski jacket.

You joke about this but actually ...

I had to go the one and only hospital yesterday which is half an hour from home and there was nothing open at all. No family members allowed in the hospital so DH couldn't use any toilet for several hours.

Leafyhouse Mon 11-May-20 06:58:57

Personally, I'm going to rush down there and snap up a few bargains. I've heard you can get a 1 bed flat in Mousehole for less than £1m. They must be getting desperate!

A lot of rural places depend on tourism for their income though. I live in a touristy place too and some restaurants are waiting to be able to at least open outdoors, managing with delivery services at present

There is a balance- social distanced outside is much less risky

TrickyD Mon 11-May-20 07:06:21

The Cornish economy relies on tourism.
The locals do not want tourists to visit Cornwall.
Good luck with that.

Orangeblossom78 Mon 11-May-20 07:16:17

We have a chemical toilet thank you

EffOrf Mon 11-May-20 07:16:50

Packing up the van to come down on Wednesday, jet ski in back as watersports allowed now, must dig the Shewee out and of course my mac and fleece.

Orangeblossom78 Mon 11-May-20 07:19:05

Will campsites and caravan sites be open now I wonder. We don't tend to go to Cornwall as it gets so busy in some places. Know someone with a mobile home there though

EffOrf Mon 11-May-20 07:24:04

Caravan and Motorhome club sites are closed until the end of June but I guess they could change that if they were able to open earlier

Hippee Mon 11-May-20 07:24:11

Maybe it's a way to raise money? He did say that fines would be raised, so perhaps they're waiting to fine anyone who takes the piss (says hopefully).

MrsMozartMkII Mon 11-May-20 07:25:36

Can I go too please.

It'll take me a few hours but there's loads of services on the way to stop at and little shops to wander around (they'll be open right?).

I could go and see my aged shielding step-Mum who lives right on the coast. That'll be nice. We can go out and about, visit the locals, I'm sure it'll all be fine...
