Thursday morning we woke up to the sun shining, and a fairly early start, to easily jump on to the A30 to start our hour's journey towards Cornwall with the dogs. We have been there before but it is a stunning county and is just a fantastic place to visit, all the towns and villages, and things to see and do, but especially the beaches. Once into the town, we found ourselves a very short walk down towards Fistral beach, very famous for its stunning North Coast waves and surf. On that morning the tide was out - not disappointing as there was plenty of soft yellow sand to play on, and of course there were still waves, just a bit further out - and apart from a few devoted surfers, the whole place was just so peaceful and quiet.
We spent a good couple of hours down on the beach, if nothing else but to enjoy the sunshine, it was just so warm it was a bit surreal and a bit spring-like, and very different to back home!! The dogs loved it, splashing about in the rock pools, climbing up the slate rock formations, and just generally messing about, and having fun. The rest of the day was spent in the town centre, and sampling the indulgent delights of the West Country - cornish pasty, cream tea, and yummy pub evening meal, before our journey home the following morning.
Of course the camera came too on our adventures, on Thursday and from our days throughout the week (after a good charge most nights before!!), we even got a few of us two together - I wish it was that I had taught Kiah to take pictures which would be really useful, but its really the timer function!! I must admit that we do end up taking so many pictures and we don't always end up printing a lot of them, but its just great to have them all as a reminder each time we look at them, of the best time of our lives. However, there are a few truly special ones which are going to be printed and forever remembered as the best memory of a truly fantastic week.
