We have just come back from our holiday and so I’ve now got a chance to update on all the things I’ve been able to tick off my list 🙂 Starting with #32. We went to Fowey in Cornwall. We’ve never really been anywhere on the south coast of Cornwall at all so this was a new departure for us. We went to various beaches and little hidden coves but for the purposes of this entry I’ve counted it as two new places – Fowey and Charlestown. Within Fowey we also visited Polruan, Bodinnick, Lantic Bay, Frog Prince Cove and Par Beach. All of which were beautiful. Charlestown is a funny little place with an Historic Port where they have tall ships and you can wander round within the harbour and look at the ships. As with a lot of places in Cornwall, we weren’t allowed on the beach with the dogs but tbh it wasn’t much of a beach anyway – very stony.
Fowey is a great little town with loads of lovely shops and proper, traditional pubs. On our first day there we went to the first ever Cider & Sea Shanty festival at the Safe Harbour Inn which was great fun. We saw a band called The Stowes who hailed from Padstow and played a mix of Irish & tradtional Cornish Folk Music. This pub was opposite the house we were staying in so it made for a noisy first night…. We had some really good food and even managed to fit in a visit to Falmouth to see my Auntie Barbara and her partner Rob. They took us out for lunch at the beach cafe at Gyllyngvase beach and we had a nice walk back along the beach and up through some woodland too. Great fun.
