Falmouth and Carn Brea

It was Michael’s last day today and we decided to take him into Falmouth.  The weather wasn’t brilliant when we left but as soon as we got over the hill at Lanner the sun began to shine and by the time we reached Falmouth it was a glorious day.  We went to the Watersports Centre for our usual coffee and toasted teacakes and as it was so nice we sat out on the veranda.   There was plenty happening for us to watch … 


After the obligatory trip for a few of us into Trago for some bargains we met up again and walked round the walkway by the Museum.  There was a huge yacht moored so I called over to her crew and asked her name.  It was the luxury charter yacht the Northern Spirit


Wow is all I can say!!

We returned to the cars and instead of our normal ice-cream on Pendennis Point we drove back towards home but made for Carn Brea as a diversion.  The sky was blue and the view was great – plenty of photo opportunities …


Jamie set the timer for a group photo!








Then it was time to get on home as the sea beckoned!

Lovely. We enjoyed visiting Falmouth when we were down there in June and there were some amazing ships and boats around then too. We enjoyed a lovely trip up the river Fal.
