Fun in Falmouth

September23

I arrived in Falmouth about 5.15pm on Wednesday 9th September having spent nearly six hours travelling by train from Winchester. As I waited at Penmere station for Karen to collect me, I decided to record the fact that the sky was blue and the weather was good! Why? Well the last time I was in Falmouth it rained most of the time!

We headed home to collect Keith and Pepper, so that Pepper could have some exercise…… and we could get some fish and chips for dinner!

We went up to Pendennis Point and took Pepper down to a little cove where she was able to swim, one of her favourite activities.

She thoroughly enjoyed chasing her floating toy and running back up the rocks, to get us wet if she could!

The following day Pepper and I walked along the cliffs to the fields above  Swanpool so that she could have a good run, and yes, it was another sunny day!

The view across the bay was superb and the sunshine was accompanied by a pleasant breeze. Pepper had a great time chasing her ball, and meeting other dogs. She even took time out to pose for the camera!

This is my best side!

By the time we got back home, we were both flagging and while I spent the afternoon reading, Pepper shared her bed with her octopus! Well, nearly!!

Nap time!

The next time we took Pepper to the cove at Pendennis, we walked round the moat of Pendennis Castle.

When we got to the Point we bought ice creams for us and a milk lolly for Pepper. The tide was out so we could investigate the small beach.
