Katie and I had booked a little trip away, as the baby is well on the way and we are not (realistically) going to be able to travel abroad, we'd got a break in Cornwall in the diary. It was to be our 'summer holiday' our last as a couple without a child, but also the first with Ferris - since I rescued him about 9 years ago I've struggled to travel with him in the car an longer than an hour without illness, so any trip away would be a challenge! We managed to pickup the new car just before we left and I was praying it'd mean a happier journey for him than stuck in the footwell of the Fiat 500!
The drive down was going to take a huge chunk of the day, we wanted to stop off several times to allow Ferris a break and a small walk and it honestly couldn't have gone much better at all. (Aside from getting soaked at a services off the A30 giving him a walk). So we made it to the coast and he seemed really happy! Katie thought it'd be great to get him out on the beach and so within an hour we headed to the nearest dog-friendly beach (Watergate Bay), and he had a brilliant time. The only downside was the fact he'd swallowed so much sea-water he was ill, but within 24 hours he was back to his best.
Lots of walking and travel from where we stayed in Porth (Newquay), to going to places nearby like St Agnes and Truro then heading slightly further afield to St Ives, Padstow and also the Eden Project not far from St Austell. Ferris, like us, had a great time, we found ourselves every afternoon all resting our legs and watching Katies' bump move- it seems baby is happiest after a walk and especially after dinner!
In the evenings I was able to take a walk over the coast with the camera and capture some spectacular sights - although its taken me some time to be able to enjoy landscapes, how could you not with such a wonderful sight right outside the apartment!?
