The Prime Minister and First Lady have arrived at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester ahead of his keynote speech.
David Cameron and his wife Samantha have been photographed on a sunny break in Polzeath.
The Prime Minister, who has received a painkilling injection after [complaining about a "phenomenally bad back", was pictured visiting the small beach village in north Cornwall.
The couple were dressed in complementary blue tones, with Mr Cameron opting for a navy polo shirt and matching shorts, while his wife wore a denim blouse teamed with beige chino shorts.
Mr Cameron appeared relaxed, with his top button undone, showing little signs of the pain he has been suffering.
It is not the first time the Camerons have visited Polzeath. Last year they braved blustery showers to have lunch at a beach-front cafe where they shared a bowl of local mussels on the terrace during a gap in the rain.
The couple have visited Cornwall for the last few summers and it was where their younger daughter Florence was born in 2010.
Downing Street has played down reports that David Cameron was being pushed into taking more action on Syria by his wife Samantha Cameron.
The Times quoted a Cabinet Minister saying that Mrs Cameron was the "biggest explanation" for the Prime Minister's stance on the conflict.
Whilst acknowledging that Samantha Cameron had been affected by her visit to Syria, the Prime Minster's spokesman insisted that policy on Syria was a matter for the National Security Council:
"I would proceed with a fair bit of caution on this one. The Government's approach to Syria is driven through the National Security Council. That is where our policy and approach is driven."
Samantha Cameron visited Syrian refugees in Lebanon in March and is cited as the "biggest explanation" for the Prime Minister's stance over the conflict.
Sources close to Mr Cameron confirmed to the paper that his wife had pushed for a more robust response to the humanitarian crisis.
The Prime Minister's wife has been baking to raise money for Red Nose Day.
A red-wigged Samantha Camera posed for photographs today as she and her children produced tasty treats to be sold in aid of Comic Relief.
The cakes will be sold to staff at Downing Street and money raised will go towards this year's campaign.
