Whitsun used to be a fairly good guarantee of warmth if not sun...

Back in the late '70s and for ten years we took our annual family holiday to Cornwall, always staying in Newquay at the Cotswold Hotel. My parents and grandparents had got into the habit in the late '60s (4 adults and luggage in a Mini overnight from the Midlands!). We always had sun or so my memory goes. Last few times I've been down it's been appalling. Last year we had to buy jumpers in August.
