Welcome home! A cute two-year-old girl runs along the wharf shouting ‘I love you’ and jumping into the arms of her Cornish fishing father as he returns from two days at sea
- Ben Rowse, 34, returned to Newlyn, Cornwall, after a few days at sea
- His daughter Toni-Rose, two, waved desperately when she saw his boat approaching
- She ran down the quay to her father with open arms and shouted ‘I love you’
This is when a fisherman receives a cute welcome home from his excited two-year-old daughter who runs after his boat as he sails back to a harbor in Cornwall.
The two Toni-Rose stayed with her mother, Demelza, when her father, skipper Ben Rowse, 34, was at sea with The Real Cornish Crab Company.
Ben’s partner Tegan Howard, 31, picked up Toni-Rose and drove her to her father when he got back to Newlyn, Cornwall.

In an adorable video, Toni-Rose is seen frantically waving and shouting ‘Dad’ as she sees his boat near the harbor.
She runs down the dock and chases the boat as she passes by, then runs with open arms to her father as he disembarks and shouts “I love you.”
Elated Ben laughs as he takes the little girl in his arms.

Tegan, the company’s social media manager, said, “He had only been gone a few days. It usually lasts about two or three days, but sometimes up to five days.
“She misses him. They are FaceTime when he’s gone, but she sometimes doesn’t see him for over a week. ‘
She added that Ben Toni-Rose usually picked up, but he asked her to do it because he might have been late.
The video was filmed on May 12, and The Real Cornish Crab Company shared the video on their Facebook page for Father’s Day.
Now it is being used as part of the # HomeAndDry campaign for Maritime Safety Week.

The team working on the campaign asked fishermen why they took their safety at sea more seriously. They said to come home to their loved ones.
This is what the campaign focuses on, rather than telling the fishermen how dangerous fishing is.
The original video was liked thousands of times and got a lot of comments, including father Mark Rowse who said, “This video gets me every time!”
Tegan continued, “Ben absolutely loved it. It was quite special.
“His dad is also a fisherman, and that’s the kind of thing he can remember when he was little.
“Ben was fishing for crabs and lobsters, I think it was a good trip.”
