St Ives and Sennen for soggy chips

The A30 was clear of hold ups and good progress was made to St Ives for a Beef Pasty and coffee. As we chose to park up on the harbour wall, an all day ticket was required and our stay extended for Helen to browse the Barbara Hepworth Museum, while I wandered to the lifeboat station and snapped photos of  boats at low tide.  Signs into the town indicate access only to permitted vehicles (through these narrow cobbled streets);  such permission was granted by myself on the premise of the indicators being too vague.
From St Ives the favourite drive (without crossing the channel) is this one along the coast to Sennen, via Zennor and St Just.
Once in Sennen our B&B is checked out OK but the fish and chips for tea beside the harbour only rated a six out of ten (on the Great British Bake-off scale  -  four). However the sunset from our window is dramatic and compensation enough.
