Road Warrior in the rain...
...so the drive in was entertaining...the Clio does want to fly, so the merest press of the throttle and it takes off.  The weather was heavy mist, almost to the point of rain, but not quite... which looks just beautiful in Cornwall, but not road conditions that I've driven in before, plus never actually been a charge of a car with a passenger other than an instructor with dual controls. 

But didn't hit anything, managed all the roundabouts, and felt pretty good about the whole thing...

Big ups to you hon...I remember the first time I drove without dual control, had to do a bloody hill start on the about the only hill in Cambridge...with the old man barking orders in his usual lovely manner :)

Still past the test about a week later (first time suckers) so must have helped..

Hurrah, sounds a little heavy on the concentration, but equally a resounding success.

Nice one.

Hooray! I've been driving for years and years and yet the first time driving in Cornwall was SO scary! Now you'll be able to drive anywhere in the world :-)

Hurrah! You never forget the first time driving a passenger.

Ew, roundabouts.
