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

Well it's about time we caught up with some blogs and also updated ours. I don't know how these pinkies go from day to day without some form of blogging but it seems they do! Oh well I think I may try and get some typing lessons and then maybe I could update on my own!
Well last month we all went to Cornwall for a very long weekend - 5 days infact so almost a week! It was great we had some rain the first day and then after that it was brilliant sunshine and hot hot hot! Although it did get a little much for me and I had to call ring and ride to come and rescue me........more about that with some pictures shortly!
We stayed in our caravan in Cornwall and travelled to Fowey, St. Austell and did the usual pubs that we visit while down there! http://pandorainn.com, The Heron Inn, Malpas near Truro (brilliant food) but dogs have to stay outside. http://punchbowlandladle.co.uk to name a few. Now don't think that my parents have a drinking problem, I don't think they do but then again we don't have anyone to compare them with! Although they do eat at the pubs too!
On the Saturday we visited Fowey, it was breezy and a little cool but it soon warmed up and boy did it get hot. I'm not over keen on walking on a lead I prefer to be loose and sniffing around at my own pace which is about as fast as a snail! (According to the pinkies!!!).
It got so hot that Dad and Mindy had to go and fetch the Muppet Mobile so that I wouldn't pass out, it was about 27 degrees and far too hot for me! I was so hot and tired that I fell asleep with my beard and my head in my water dish while going along - I woke up when the flash on the camera made me jump! I wasn't impressed to say the least!
I'll leave you with a couple of pictures and will be back shortly after my dinner!
