Today has certainly had its ups and downs. We’ve driven through some amazing scenery, but the enjoyment has been dampened somewhat by Miikka being violently sick all over the south west coast of England… Yes, he’s in a bad way and we’re not quite sure why, as we’ve all eaten pretty much the same things (and both Stu and I are fine – so far…). It’s quite heartbreaking really, to see him feel that bad. We planned this trip for quite some time and I was so looking forward to showing him all these amazing places… We can only hope that he feels better by tomorrow so we can at least have one proper day of full-on tourism.
We did drive through pretty places with beautiful beaches like Teignmouth, Torquay and Torcross (where Layla was just on holiday for a week but they had driven home yesterday, damn!), and one of my all time favourite places, Dartmouth(which involved a rather lengthy queue for the ferry). Finally crossing over from Devon to Cornwall, we did miss out on places like Looe and Polperro as we took a quicker route in order to get the quite grey looking patient into bed. But that’s ok, it’s still great to be back in Cornwall. I can’t believe it’s seven years since we were here last, for my 25th birthday! Crikey time flies. After tucking M into bed and arming him with bottles of water, Stu and I went for a quick drive to St Ives, just to make it a reality that we’re really here. Oh how I wish it was for longer than one day.
Right now all I can hear is synchronised snoring. I think it’s time for me to dive into my book for a while before falling asleep. Here’s hoping tomorrow starts in a more positive manner than today…
Oh no, what a nasty way to start out vacation! Hope he feels better tomorrow..
Voi jessus mikä tuuri. Jos ei sää niin sitten olo! 🙁
Olisi tunnustus tarjolla blogissani 🙂
Darn ! Hope he gets better and you’re not contaminated…
Anyway cannot wait to see the pix ; I spent a month around Exeter, Starcross and Dawlish when I was 15 – dear memories !!!!
