Been looking at options for a long weekend away with Dad and Ondine. Can't come soon enough, really could use the break. The weekend that commences with Friday 25th July is the earliest I can realistically get out of work, so that's the date set.
Went through various options regarding where to go, Falmouth and Plymouth being two of the main contenders, the main criteria being we want somewhere easy; familiar, friendly, and with plenty of options whatever the weather does. Settled eventually on Fowey. Four days and three nights.
We've parked the idea of sleeping on the boat this time around and booked accommodation at the Old Ferry Inn, only a short, pretty walk across the fields on the east bank of the river to reach Penmarlam Quay, out of where where we'll base Ondine for the weekend.
The above photo was taken over the side of Ondine a couple of years ago, on a particularly sunny spring break. The mouth of Fowey Harbour and St Austell's Bay lie ahead of her.
Really can't wait.
