Throngs of holiday-makers along the quay
It's a busy little place

This one's square.  Just another cruiser passing through, like many others from the Brest Maritime Festival on their way north

Falmouth, Cornwall England

July 11th-20th
Falmouth, at the mouth of the River Fal, was a beautiful sight, lush and green, full of sailboats, ancient gun forts (King Harry XIII), friendly people and mild weather.  We loved it.

Karl took the train back to Paris from here.  It was ridiculously convenient.
St Mawes Town Regatta
Tied to a mid-river pontoon, we met some friendly cruisers
While waiting for a replacement autopilot, we spent a few days up the Fal River.

Low tide...
