Padstow

August 13, 2012
♥ Chris and I looking like we have co-ordinated outfits  ♥ Canoeing around Mother Ivey's Bay- yes that's me!  ♥ Padstow  ♥ My sister, Jess and I  ♥ Charlie in the sea- he swam for the first time and absolutely loved it 

Last week was spent in the lovely part of the world that is Cornwall; Padstow more specifically. My family and I went down there for a week of camping- I have not been camping for years so was a bit apprehensive at first. Luckily I got into the swing of things quickly and we only had a couple of days of bad weather- the rest was gorgeous sunshine. It was so hot at the end of the week that I found myself in the sea! 

Chris joined us the day after we arrived as he had just cycled with some friends from John O'Groats to Lands End. He was a very tired boy and wanted a week of doing nothing after the bike ride! 

It was a brilliant week. Charlie came along with us and loved it- he had tonnes of walks and enjoyed the sea so much, maybe a bit too much as he was sick after drinking too much salty sea water! We went on my Dad's inflatable canoe, messed around with body boards in the sea and did a lot of lounging and reading by the tent. The campsite, Mother Ivey's Bay Holiday Park was fantastic and it was my parent's 4th visit- it is near 3 beaches, one of which is the campsites privately owned beach- I really recommend it and you can view their website here.
