This weekend, my friend Kelly travelled 6 hours to come and stay with me in Cornwall!
It can be pretty isolated here in Cornland, which is a pain as it means most of my friends are at least 4 hours away, making it difficult to see them regularly.
It feels like an honour when someone is willing to do that hideous 6 hour, £70 trip from London just to see me! I’m incredibly grateful.
On Saturday we headed to Gyllingvase beach in Falmouth (a personal favourite of mine), with Pepper. Unfortunately, the weather was pretty grey, but at least it wasn’t raining!
We did the quick walk over to Swanpool beach as well, meeting lots of other dogs and people along the way. It seemed like the day to take your dog to the beach!
Pepper always seems to attract a small fan-club wherever we go, and at one point when I’d gone to find a bin to put Pepper’s you-know-what in, an elderly couple approached Kelly and asked if they could steal Pepper!
Sunday seemed a bit sunnier, so I decided to take Kelly (and Pepper) to Marazion near Penzance, so that she could see St. Michael’s Mount.
As we drove into the car park, I was amazed at how many kite surfers there were. This should have been our first clue, as we were almost blown away when we got out the car. The wind was insane!
Neither Kelly or Pepper seemed phased by the wind, so we went for a run around before heading to Hayle to pick up some Philps Pasties and bringing them back to the house for Nath (who had been inside painting the conservatory).
Even though the weather wasn’t perfect, I’m glad it wasn’t too rainy so that I could show Kelly the best bits of Cornwall. I can’t wait until summer when we can actually go out kayaking or spend a day a the beach.
Hope you have a good weekend!
