holiday report

Took the kids and dogs to Cornwall on holiday this year. We stayed in the village of  newtown-in-St.Martin near Goonhilly, nice little place but the cars do speed through there especially at night. Lots of small lanes to walk the dogs and children. Local pub with good beer but sadly never did any food whilst we were there.

Things we did..
Took the ferry from Falmouth up to the National Trusts Trelissick Gardens, even got the dogs on the boat..Fal River Links.
Went crabbing on the inner pier at porthleven. I say the inner pier as we read a warning about freak waves on the outer pier and Looe bar. The dogs got a bit bored but the kids got 20 crabs each time.
Went to Mylor key crabbing off the quay at the back of the car park, got loads of large crabs there. The only down side was a mans dog attacked Finn and then got beaten in front of the children upsetting the younger one - he should have bought the dog a lead rather than hit it.
We went to East side of Kennack Sands a few times, slightly ruined by other people's dogs being off their leads roaming the beach causing our pair to bark a lot. Oh yes and they hate kites..
We went to Hayle beach but had to leave when a kite flyer decided to practice on the empty beach right over the dogs.
We went to Chysauster ancient settlement on a wet day.
We went  to a dog allowed beach near Church cove a few times as the sand had some streams that were ideal for damming and the rock pools were interesting, also a good walk allong the headland to the Halzephron Inn and back.
Ate lots of pasties and I drank some beer.
Had lunch in the Blue Anchor in in Helston a few times.
Cycled up the 1in 5 from helford village a few times.
