Freshly back from our camping hols near Falmouth, tonight we’re going to post a few pictures from our adventures. I think we’ve been very lucky because everyone seems to have had really bad weather, but we managed to have a great time despite having just a few showers (!)
We set off bright and breezy and found a great campsite on the Restronguet Creek, by early afternoon we’d cycled around the area and stopped off for our first beer, and we knew we were on the right track for a great holiday.
We’ve managed to do everything we love doing, although next time we come we’ll definitely bring the kayaks. We cycled most days, including one day coast to Coast across the tin trail leading from Devoran to Portreath, …..and back! 22 miles off road is not bad for a 5 year old….!
It’s a fab location, and we’ve visited some idyllic Cornish villages and coves. We have surfed and swam in the sea, we’ve paddled in the rock pools and walked the coastal path.
We were also very lucky to make friends on the campsite with James and Sam, and their three kids Beth, Eleanor and Rachael who proved to be inseparable from our clan. It’s great to meet people who share the same passion for the stuff we like to do. Naturally the kids did not want to part, but after a week of gymnastics (…thanks for the lessons guys), and boat rides up the creek, and all sorts of fun and games, it was soon time to say cheerio!
