Decided that I was being a wuss if I didn't go down to Cornwall. Sogetting to Devon at lunch time Thursday, quick lunch and a two hour drive to St Ives on the north coast of Cornwall.
Thursday evening after supper just sitting on the beach at Carbis Bay listening to the waves and walking in the surf, but forgot my camera!
Friday it was Falmouth.It's a long time since I'd been here and it's blown me away. In fact I'm in the process of now reconsidering my options as to where I'm going to move to. I can afford a house down in Cornwall and one quite possibly with a sea view. It's one of the poorest parts of Britain alongside the area I live so I can get more for my money than in Devon. Anyway all is to play for now, but watch this space!
A view of Falmouth harbour from the restuarant we had lunch. Not a bad place to sit and eat pizza and drink too much wine with my friend L, who I've known for 25 years and who moved down here last year.

Friday it was first stop Mineack open air theatre for a picnic sitting on one of the stone seats
The sea and flower strewn cliff below the stage
Me on the stage with the sea beyond sparkling in the midday sun.
Next stop Cape Cornwall with Lands End in the distance.
