We spent one of our days around Falmouth - on a boat trip to see sharks and dolphin and whales, oh my!
So, we got kitted up in this rather tasteful gear. Note that the appropriate footwear was not provided so tootsies got cold.
The faux fisherman look was for riding in one of these. For two hours. Bums were numb.
And did we see any dophins, whales or basking sharks? Not one. However, we did see gannets, guillemots and cormorants - making a lot of noise - and...
...even better than that we went to Fraggle Rock! I was very excited.
(It's not leaning - I was photographing this from a boat).
(For those who don't know/remember, Fraggle Rock was another Jim Henson muppet type offering, set below a lighthouse, featuring various puppet type things. It had a great theme tune. The light house is actually this one at St Anthony's Head, across the bay from Falmouth - and not to be confused with Giles from Buffy).
Back on shore, having clambered out of the boat, we drove down to Porthcurno, to the Minack Theatre.
This was built into the cliff side by Rosemary Cade and during the Summer, you can take a picnic to go and see a play. We were there for Romeo and Juliet - it was the hammiest performance I have ever seen, certainly on Juliet's part (and I could barely understand the nurse's accent, which coming from a fake-Geordie is saying something, I know but it meant I missed all the rude jokes).
The sun set just before the Romeo and Juliet carked it.
