Garden, Truro Museum and Godrevy Beach

30 Jul

The garden delights me every day.

J loves all things Egyptian so we took him and T to the Royal Cornwall Museum to their fabulous exhibition of early cultures. Many years ago it was the same mummy, now in an updated exhibition, that gave me my love of all things Egyptian. He spent a happy time investigating the mummy, putting the organs into the canopic jars and re-wrapping the mummy (all models for those of my readers of a sensitive disposition!)
