Cake, Viaduct and Falmouth Harbour

We both appreciated this sign in a local shop!

Sign in Thorntons

Leaving Truro this afternoon, we saw a different view of the viaduct.

After enjoying a delightful evening with friends at a Wilson and Wakeman gig in the Falmouth Poly, we walked down to see the harbour lights.

Falmouth Docks, Red Lights and The Super Moon

We had lunch with friends today and this was part of the view from the window.

I was looking for the Super Moon this evening and saw  that the light shining through the back door glass was throwing coloured lights onto the ground outside.

I found the Super Moon by going out at the front instead of through the back!

Gyllyngvase on Sunday afternoon

There was a brisk North wind today so we chose the South coast for our walk and it was remarkably peaceful.

Passion Flower, Cake and A Jungle

We’ve spent the afternoon in Falmouth, shopping and taking coffee and cake in the Courtyard Cafe where Passion Flowers were in bloom and the Coffee, Chocolate and Vanilla Cake irresistible. Many shops on the harbour side of the town have windows with wonderful views which look over the harbour and the opposite coastline. The Hospice Shop however, has a veritable jungle outside the window and is fabulous! The volunteer working today let me go through to the back to see the garden, belonging to the owner above the shop, properly. We loved it.

In the Grounds of Falmouth University

Quite an adventure this morning as a good friend from choir and I navigated the many paths through the grounds to try to find the AMATA, Academy of Music and Theatre Arts at Falmouth University where our choir were rehearsing this morning. What a beautiful environment to study in!



Masts in the Sunset

We are just in from a beautiful evening with both my choirs – a boat trip from Falmouth to St Mawes where we sang joyfully to passers-by and then came back, singing all the way.

Coming back into Falmouth



Walk Around St Anthony Head

Please join us for our favourite circular walk on The Roseland Peninsular, from Bohortha along the coast to St Anthony Head past Place Manor and St Anthony Church and back up to the village.  It has been the most glorious Spring day, brisk out of the sunshine and beautifully warm in the sun. The colours are true! No enhancing done here! Feast your eyes.  We haven’t done this walk for several years because of my hips. Now that I have two new ones, we can do it again!  Click on any photo for the caption and more detail.
