20190824_155954 copy.jpegVisitors gives us the chance to do something different. When you have been in a place  three years, you tend to the obvious. The always welcome appearance of David and Jennifer took us first ten-pin bowling. None of us the best but enjoyed by all.20190824_161640 copy.jpeg20190824_161724 copy.jpegOn another day we went to Falmouth. First a splendid birthday lunch at The Royal Duchy Hotel where we were then able to leave our car for the afternoon’s trip. Then into town.the-royal-duchy-hotel-01.jpgAlways a great place to visit, apart from its seaside connotations Falmouth has some nice streets…20190825_145441 copy.jpgand some brilliant houses and buildings – often the historic homes of sea captains.20190825_145451 copy.jpg20190825_145929 copy.jpeg20190825_150042 copy.jpeg20190825_151150 copy.jpeg20190825_151248 copy.jpeg20190825_182327 copy.jpgBeing a Bank Holiday, the shopping streets and harbour were full of people and atmosphere.20190825_150554-copy.jpegWe however had decided to take the ferry across to St Mawes which is always a really enjoyable trip with plenty to see…..20190825_154746 copy.jpg20190825_155351 copy.jpg20190825_160011 copy.jpg at both ends…..20190825_160138-copy.jpegAfter a little paddle…….20190825_161757-copy.jpg……….it was good to see David and Jennifer were still enjoying themselves. We then walked along the ‘promenade’ through town to the castle.20190825_162402 copy.jpgOn the way this time I noticed a very quirky little gunnel or alleyway (don’t know what they call them in these parts……where we used to live in York it was ‘snickleways’}.
