Chris and myself took the new car for a trip down to Cornwall. We had a three day trip going to Falmouth first then onto Fowey. 

We left at 6am and arrived into Falmouth at 11, we were way too early to check into the hotel so decided to carry on driving. We went to Penzance to have a look round and find somewhere to eat for lunch. We found a cute restaurant called Mackerel Sky down a little side street. The food was amazing, Chris had the best fish and chips and I had crab on ciabatta which was a dream, I had never tasted crab before, but now I love it. 

We then drove onto Newlyn to look at the harbor and all the fishing boats. 

After this we went on to Mousehole and went to the lifeboat memorial for those who died in the Penlee lifeboat disaster. This was lovely, especially as it looked right out to Newlyn and the sea. 

After we had explored a bit we checked into our hotel in Falmouth. We stayed at the Greenbank which was great, the location was perfect. We dropped off our bags and headed into town. 

The next day we drove onto St Agnes to take a look at the beach from the car as I refused to get out as it was wet and windy. 

After we drove though Newquay and onto Padstow, which was heaving with people and traffic. We visited the lobster  hatchery and had a drink in the pub. Who knew lobsters started off soo tiny! They are smaller than a fingernail. 

After this we went onto Fowey (Foy) which was super cute. We checked into our hotel, the Fowey hotel which was very cosy and had a lift like the one from titanic! *we only stayed on the first floor but used this lift every single time* 

We left the next morning for the 7 hour trip home, we enjoyed the trip although next time it needs to be longer!
