Holiday to Cornwall - March 2015

Heywo fwends and followers.

I thought it had been quite along time since I have written some bloggy posts and I recently got back from a few days in Cornwall with the hoomans. So here's some of the things we got up to.
Me on Porthmeor beach in st ives 

We went to St Ives when we 1st arrived and walked down from the car park across the beach at Porthmeor (its dog friendly "out of season" from like October until Easter) and then went around town looking in all the shop windows. We stopped in the town overlooking another of the towns beaches and ordered lunch from a takeaway (I cant remember it's name but it was the fish and chip shop that also sale fresh fish and has all the fish laid out like in a fish market.) We had fish and chips and more chips whilst looking at the sea and then as we were finishing we spotted a houndie coming, as we were walking across the road I said I was going over to say hi to him and the hoomans said I could (as long as I cross the road sensibly with them ofcourse!!!) This is Stewie! ---->
I know that coz it says so on hims coat! we did sniffs and then I got fusses from his hoomans and he got fusses from mine hoomans. We talked lots about all things hounds. Stewie doesn't have a very nice start to hims life though, he wasn't one the lucky ones! Once we had finished with our chat we went separate ways and I walked back through town, we stopped and bought cake and fudge from some the shops and then walked back across Porthmeor beach and the long way back to the car park before going to find our home for the week.

The next day we went off for a visit to The Minack Theatre we have been here before last year (although apparently I never got around to writing to you about it, so I'll tell you some things now!) The Minack is near Penzance and it's an open air theatre thats around 80 years old and was owned by Rowena Cade.   and it has had 100's of plays there and still does in the summer and evenings. We went during the day just for a look , you can see really good views from here.

After we had spent some time looking at the Theatre we got ice creams / lollys . We also went to The Watermill for dinner one evening.  We sat out in the garden as it was quite a nice evening when we went (I did wear my fleece ofcourse!) We ordered a sweet potato and chickpea lasagne and a chicken pie. The lasagne was nice but it was quite a dry one, it didn't really have any sauce in it. The Watermill allows dogs inside too but the garden is a really nice one with benches and a nice river and loads of space so if it's not too cold out then it's greyt to sit outside on the grass. We made a return visit to The Sand Bar at Praa Sands for breakfast and we witnessed the solar eclipse there too. We also bumped in to a houndie on the beach and guess who it was Stewie the boy we had met at the beginning of the week.
     We also visited a new park called Tehidy country park , it was quite nice but it was quite tricky to find where we were going. We found the car park easily but when we got inside the park we couldn't find the bit where dogs are allowed. We had to get some help, so you walk from the car park straight up past the cafe and toilets and dont turn left , go straight and you get to a road with a golf course to your right, walk up the road until you come to a gate and go through that and there you'll find the  rest of the park where we can walk around.

Ofcourse we also visited some beaches whilst we were away too.
