Falmouth, Maritime Museum and Godrevy

20 Jul

1    It was a beautiful sunny day in Falmouth where we met P&V who came over from St Mawes on the ferry.

2    We had a lovely time playing with the remote controlled sailing boats in the Maritime Museum.

3    Try to imagine sitting on the cliffs as the sun sets into the sea and hearing the waves lapping on the shore. Gradually, lights appear on the island and all the while you are listening to a soundscape of beautiful love poems……..  That was us, this evening,  taking part in the Peace Camp 2012, part of the Cultural Olympiad. If you are reading this and are near one of the other installations around the British coast, do try to join in. It is a truly beautiful experience.Wherever you live, you could still download the soundtrack,http://www.peacecamp2012.com/locations/godrevy-head.aspx  enlarge one of my photos, listen and imagine!

    Two years ago we were in Falmouth so I’m able to relate to what you say. Invoked great memories. We had a wonderful time there. Thank you.

    Sunset is my favorite time of day, and you captured it amazingly. So, so beautiful!

      I agree! If you have time, do listen. There are some lovely words there too. 🙂

        They are wonderful words. They are what I used to try to get my students to do! Do you know “Under Milk Wood” by Dylan Thomas? That begins ‘Listen’ and takes its listeners (It was written for radio) around a seaside village from night through day to bedtime again and is a most beautiful, somewhat crazy piece where you have to listen and imagine. I love it! 🙂
