This adorable video shows a young girl running down a quay to welcome her fishing skipper father home from sea.
Toni-Rose, two, had been staying with her mother, Demelza, when her dad, Ben Rowse, 34, was out with The Real Cornish Crab Company.
Ben’s partner Tegan Howard, 31, picked up Toni-Rose and drove her to meet her dad as he arrived back into Newlyn, Cornwall.
As she saw his boat arrive, the youngster began frantically waving and running down the quay towards her dad – who disembarks and runs to meet his waiting daughter.
Tegan, social media manager for the company, said: “She was waving at him as he came through Newlyn Harbour and she welcomed him home as the boat comes in.
“She chased him as he comes into the harbour and ran and hugged him as he jumped off the boat.
“He’d only been away a couple of days, he usually goes for about two or three days but sometimes up to five days.
“She does miss him, they Facetime when he’s away but she sometimes doesn’t see him for over a week.
“I picked her up from her mum and took her to meet him from the boat, usually he would pick her up when he gets in but he asked me to do it because he might have been in late.”
The video as filmed on May 12, and The Real Cornish Crab Company shared the video on their Facebook page for Father’s Day.
They wrote: “The best welcome home a daddy can get!
“Skipper Ben Rowse being chased into Newlyn Harbour by his adorable two year old daughter, Toni-Rose.
“We know how tough it can be for fishermen working away from their families but homecomings like this make it all worth it.
“Happy Father’s Day to all the doting dads, stepdads and granddads out there. We hope you’re being spoilt rotten (if you’re lucky enough to be home today!).”
The video was liked thousands of times and received a flurry of comments, including relative Mark Rowse who said: “This video gets me every time!”
Tegan continued: “Ben absolutely loved it. That one was pretty special.
“His dad’s a fisherman too and that’s the kind of thing he can remember doing when he was a kid.
“Ben was out fishing for crabs and lobsters, it was a good trip I think.”
