A Family get-together……

20190504_103652 copy.jpgAlways nice to have a family get-together and this one to celebrate two birthdays Katherine and David. It was good that Aiisha could explore our new play park in the village which seemed to go down well….20190504_103803 copy.jpgand from there an easy transfer to the Amusement Centre in Looe with more rides and the opportunity taken to win two unicorns.20190504_132148 copy.jpgThe beach was good too with Aiisha dressed for the weather and David apparently fearful..20190504_151424 copy.jpegA Birthday cake at home was well received.20190504_181859 copy.jpgNext day, a Sunday, we were off to Falmouth for a proper Birthday meal. We parked by Kimberley Gardens with its even better play park……..20190505_131210 copy.jpg20190505_131922 copy.jpgwhich even pleased some of the adults……20190505_134122 copy.jpg20190505_134845 copy.jpg                           A nice place to live here with its Edwardian houses….20190505_135031 copy.jpg20190505_135035 copy.jpgVery big fish in the pond too…20190505_135142 copy.jpg20190505_135407 copy.jpgOur meal was at the Star and Garter winner of Best Foodie Pub in the South West by Food Magazine. Great views.20190505_142230 copy.jpegPost lunch some light exercise on Gyllngvase beach. A nice day all round. 20190505_171440 copy.jpg20190505_171654 copy.jpegOn the following day we went to Lydford Gorge in North Devon, lots of steps through woodland, to see the 30m White Lady waterfall20190506_143408 copy.jpeg20190506_143810 copy.jpeg20190506_143921 copy.jpg20190506_143954 copy.jpg                       We then wandered along the trail (this goes from one NT cafe to another!)…..20190506_145324 copy.jpga beautiful walk…..20190506_145354 copy.jpg20190506_151514 copy.jpgwith the occasional rapids and falls…20190506_151704 copy.jpg20190506_152350 copy.jpgin parts it is quite narrow with a deep drop and the handrails then prove useful.20190506_153118 copy.jpg                        and at one point there is a ‘money bench’ with inserted coins of all ages and descriptions…….I must admit I am easily impressed sometimes, but all of us were agreed it was a magnificent walk and worth repeating.20190506_154050 copy.jpgOn the last day we went to the climbing wall at Looe which said it would be open but wasn’t. We took the opportunity then to have a look round the Sardine Factory which tells you all about the history of Looe particularly as a sardine centre, and Katherine told us that it was very similar to the one in L’Escala. 20190507_104827 copy.jpg20190507_104850 copy.jpg                 Now where am I?20190507_104947 copy.jpg20190507_105251 copy.jpgNext stop was Victoria services to fill up with lpg and there we found that the Climbing Centre was absolutely terrific and more than made up for our disappointment in Looe.  I thought four and a half year old Aiisha was astonishing and totally unfazed. maybe a new long-term hobby for her?
