... to the Pier at 4.10 and immediately boarded the ferry to St Mawes which was leaving at 4.15. It was a 20 minute trip across the river. St Mawes Castle stands on a point opposite Pendennis Castle. These are two of the best preserved castles in Cornwall, St Mawes is a small village, nothing much there but very attractive. We caught the 5.15 ferry back to Falmouth where everything was closed as it was nearing 6.00. We found our way back to the car park ...

... pub. We even had a Cornish Cream Tea in the restaurant the doubles as the pub. Leaving aside Doc Martin, it really was a great example of an old fishing port. Tiny houses built almost on top of each other. Narrow passage ways, one called by the locals as "Squeeze-ee-Belly Alley". Some cottages are now summer rentals and have lovely small gardens. And the streets really are steep, really steep. Up on top, the town sprawls out into a fairly large village. It is surrounded ...

... priced trinkets. We had lunch at a little pub. The food was very good and the waitress was very friendly and agreed to take our photo. We continued looking around till 5.00, when we were worn out and happy to head home. It was a good day.

... the ones we get from the Upwey Bakery at home. We drove back via Redruth as Edie wanted to visit the graveyard of a church at Gwennap. This proved difficult to find as our map was not detailed enough and there were many unnamed lanes shooting off the side of the road we expected to turn off. Eventually with some help, we had to backtrack a few miles to find it. It was old and the graveyard was huge, some maintained but a lot overgrown. Edie was lucky enough to talk to a man ...

... pub for dinner. The Cornish Arms is about a 200 metres walk from the cottage. We got there about 5.30 but they didn't serve dinner until 6.00. So we had a drink and perused the menu. I decided I would have a Veggie Burger and Edie chose a prawn cocktail with garlic bread. The meals were very large. So long diet. But we did enjoy it and we certainly got value for money. Tomorrow we plan to go to St Michael's Mount and then down to Lizard. Not sure what else, we'll take it as it ...
