A dash to catch the first ferry to St Mawes, and then another boat to Place to continue the walk. This is the route from my phone.
The ferry for St Mawes pulls away from Customs House Pier. The ferry has done enough miles back and forth to have traveled 4 times round the world!
One of the picturesque boats in Carrick Roads (Falmouth Harbour).
Quite large ships can be accommodated in the repair yards at Falmouth. On a visit here some years ago I found Carrick Roads crowded with all manner of mothballed ships including tankers and container vessels, now gone.
St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII to protect the harbour from those dastardly French!
Place House, and preparations for an afternoon wedding reception were underway in steady light rain. The weather cleared by 12:00 so they would have had a lovely afternoon for the celebrations.
A medieval coffin in the graveyard outside Place Church.
Saint Anthony's Lighthouse at the eastern entrance to Falmouth Harbour guides vessels clear of the Manacles rocks, south of the harbour entrance.
A serene sea. The view from Killigerran Head across Towans Beach. The headland in the mid distance is Nare Head with the far headland being Dodman Point. Today's destination, Portloe, lies between theses two.
Like it says on the label!
Gull Rock off Nare Head
Looking back to Nare Head and Gull Rock, looking pretty in the afternoon sun.
Tonight's stop hoves into view, Portloe Harbour, shown here with The Lugger Inn.
