Frollicking in Falmouth and a Trip to St Mawes

2nd October, 2015

After breakfast I start the morning with a visit to the Maritime Museum. Lovely design constructed mainly in wood and was designed by an architect called M.J.Long. It opened in 2003. It was hosting an exhibition called Women at Sea.  So nice to see images from Mary Lang who joined the crew sailing on the last Merchant Ship sailing from Australia to Cornwall in the 1930's to watching the video of Dame Ellen MacArthur returning triumphantly to Southampton after becoming the fastest woman ever to circumnavigate the globe.

 Architecture aside, Falmouth Harbour and Falmouth itself reminds me of Ghent in Belgium. This because they both have that affiliation with the sea, both are artistic and attractive towns and mostly both are proper working towns so tourism does not overide this. The University of Falmouth provides a real buzz to the town and it is renowned for its art courses. But now I walk to the ferry to St Mawes. I won't use the photographs taken in St Mawes because it is not the Atlantic but the choppy sea swell as we leave Falmouth is  a fusion of English Chanel and Atlantic. But St Mawes is lovely, and the rocks and beaches provide some great walking alongside the sailing that is evident in this seaside village.

I have a Rick Stein take away on return to Falmouth - very reasonable price indeed and tasty to.The weather is still good and more to come tomorrow
