We got home from our holiday in Cornwall late yesterday afternoon. The weather has been mixed over the last fortnight, we had rain, sunshine and dull days in equal measure, but we've had a lovely time.
Thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments on my last post. Eleanor was thrilled to receive so many birthday wishes, it made her day.
We'd arranged for her to have a full body Swedish massage in the morning, however, she was still suffering the effects of sunburn on her back so we postponed it until a couple of days later. Instead, after card and present opening, at Eleanor's request, we headed off to Constantine Bay.
I'd read about Constantine Bay before our holiday and earmarked it as a place we may visit as it allows dogs the year round. Dogs have to be kept on leads on some beaches, allowed between certain times on others, whilst dogs aren't allowed at all on some.
We'd visited Padstow a couple of days earlier and stopped off at Constantine Bay on the way home just to see what it was like. It's got gorgeous sandy sand and the clearest blue water, but it does tend to get quite busy.
There's a large area of rocks, great if you like rockpooling.
It's a very popular beach and attracts many holidaymakers.
Parts of the beach are extremely rocky, but very picturesque.
The sea here is crystal clear. I can see why it's popular with surfers.
So, Eleanor's birthday dawned and it was a beautiful day, perfect for a day at Constantine Bay. She took her body board with her and both she and Mick enjoyed lots of fun in the sea. Ice creams were devoured, more so by Archie than the rest of us.
We explored the rock pools and found a mini waterfall.
Archie enjoyed cooling off in the rock pools and some were so deep that he even enjoyed a little swim in them.
It was a good day. Afterwards, we went back to the lodge to get changed before heading out for a bite to eat. Eleanor thoroughly enjoyed celebrating her birthday on holiday.
I've got lots of catching up with blog reading to do now we're home so please bear with me. It looks like you've all been busy, I've got so many posts to read but I'm sure I'll be caught up in the next few days.
