Camerons chill out with Cornish mussels
THE Prime Minister and his wife braved blustery showers yesterday to enjoy lunch during their annual Cornish holiday.
David and Samantha Cameron visited a beach-front cafe in the village of Polzeath. The couple have visited the area in north Cornwall for the past few summers and it was where their youngest daughter Florence was born in 2010. They gave her the middle name “Endellion” in honour of the area, St Endellion, where they were staying at the time.
Kato Harrison, the cafe’s manager, said the couple stayed for around 45 minutes, sharing a bowl of the Porthilly Mussels Marinière, made with mussels from the Camel Estuary around four miles away.
The Prime Minister wore a short-sleeved polo shirt for the lunch, which included a pint of ale, overlooking the beach and crashing Atlantic waves in the popular surfing resort. But his wife played it safe in the face of the changeable weather with a long-sleeved coat.
The couple are on holiday until next weekend, although the Prime Minister will return to London for the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games on Wednesday.
Earlier this month after the Olympic Games ended the couple enjoyed a break on the Spanish island of Majorca.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg also holidayed in Spain. The Prime Minister returned to the UK last week for a few days at work before heading to Cornwall for a short break.
His time away will have given the Prime Minister the opportunity to think about a Cabinet reshuffle, expected to take place in September.
