The Prime Minister and his wife braved blustery showers today to enjoy lunch during their annual Cornish holiday.
David and Samantha Cameron visited a beach-front cafe in the village of Polzeath where they shared a bowl of local mussels on the terrace during a gap in the rain.
The couple have visited the area in north Cornwall for the last 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 Mariniere, made with mussels from the Camel Estuary around four miles away.
Mr Cameron wore a short-sleeved polo shirt for the lunch, including 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 Mr Cameron will return to London for the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games on Wednesday.
Their time away will have given the Prime Minister time to think about a Cabinet reshuffle, widely expected to take place in September.
