Fantastic views and a bike ride - Cornwall Part Four

Feeding the piggies on Thursday morning.  I must admit I've taken quite a liking to these pigs :-)

As well as the normal animal feeding on Thursday morning the kids got to groom and walk the pony around the field too.




After second breakfast, (for Oliver anyway) we decided to walk into Padstow.  It's about 2 miles from the farm over the fields and down the lanes and out onto the Camel Trail 


 Below, Padstow in the distance, the tide was out on our walk down


And was in by the time we were walking back again


Oliver enjoyed going through the kissing gates and over the styles







Oliver the scarecrow!


We had a quick stop off in Padstow for lunch and found the welly dog! 


Then we hired some bikes to ride the Camel Trial. 
Oliver can't ride a bike on his own yet so Mark had him on a hook-up.




 


I haven't got a photo of me on my bike, but I was right behind them, lol
We rode from Padstow to Wadebridge, 5 3\4 miles and It was such good fun, I don't know who had the most fun, me or Oliver, lol but I can tell you that It was me who ached the most after!

That day we walked 4 miles to Padstow and back, and rode 11 and a half miles, from Padstow to Wadebridge and back, both me and Mark clocked well of 18,000 steps not counting the peddling!!

Boy did we know about it by the time we got back to the caravan, but it was worth it for the experience, the fantastic views and the smile on Oliver's face.



For me this was the best day of the holiday.

What a great holiday you've all had doing so many things, I'm sure it's something Oliver will always remember. It would make my holiday being on a farm with piggies!
