Gray and rain but not a surprise

After leaving Plymouth we headed off to Launceston to see the Launceston Castle. This is a 13th century castle built by Richard, Earl of Cornwall. On our way home we stopped at a pasty shop and got some Cornish pasties for a scrumptious dinner.
We awoke to gray skies and rain but this is England so this comes as no surprise. I am not complaining...It still beats snow. We had a big breakfast then hopped in the car to go see the city of Plymouth. It was much larger then we had thought it would be. We parked the car then walked around the main shopping area looking for the Tourist Information office. We found out that it is located near the sea front so off we went. On the way to the sea front we walked by this huge anchor from a military ship that was a must for a photo. When we got to the seafront and the Plymouth light house there was a bus rally going on. All kinds of buses. New, old, single decker and double. We walked on to the harbor area and found the tourist information office. We continued investigating the old harbor area trying to imagine the pilgrims boarding the Mayflower and setting sail for the new world from here.
