Mindys Day out with Pinky











Hey everyone it's me Mindy!








I want to tell you all about my day out on a boat with Pinky!








It all started on the Monday morning when we were away in Cornwall, dad said he was going to visit his dad's old friend who is rather old and cantankerous - Mum said she would prefer not to go because Mindy would get bored! Huh what a cheek! Anyway Dad said that was fine and that he would take Alf because he likes to sleep and Mum could take me out into Falmouth and Truro.








He dropped us off and I said goodbye to Alf - and we walked into Falmouth and went to the pier to find out what time the boat left for Truro. We had 2 hours to kill so we walked down to the Maritime Museum and had a look at the shops there, I was even allowed into the 'Wierd Fish' Shop as long as I didn't try anything on!! I'm not sure whether they meant clothing or chewing! They had obviously heard all about my habits!






Anyway we had a walk around and sat at an outdoor cafe and a had a bowl of water and a bonio! Well Pinky had a cup of coffee and some cake. She didn't fancy the bonio!



We went over and sat and waited for the boat and eventually it came and we all boarded, luckily we got the pointed end all to ourselves so that we could stand up and look out to see with the wind in our beards! Well Pinky doesn't have one but she stood up with me and felt the wind in her hair!



When we eventually arrived in Truro - it takes an hour by boat we had a long walk ahead of us. There is actually a cycle track that you can take and it is a shortcut but we couldn't find it!! So we had to walk up a great big hill in the blistering heat along side a dual carriage way! Anyway we got to the top and started walking down the hill and towards a village called Calenick. We walked for an and a half until we got a phone call from Dad to say he was on his way down the hill and where were we! We could see him but we were stuck on a cycle track up a hill - we could see the road but he couldn't see us! He had to park at the other end and wait for us to catch up! Anyway Alf was very very pleased to see us and so we hitched a ride and went to the pub!!



All in all I had a great day out with mum and hope we can do it again soon!



I'll leave you with some pictures of my aboard the Enterprise II Boat!

Love Mindy xx

That's nice to have a Girl's Day out isn't it? Pity it was so hot though.
As a matter of interest do your pinkies give driving directions using pubs as landmarks...just wondering....

Hey Mindy,
A girls day out sounds good. I wonder if D would like to take Willow, Tess & Lucy out....hmmm I think not hee hee.
The photos look great. Those English pubs sure have a lot of appeal.
