Anglesey to Cornwall

Big Ships in the entrance to Falmouthlots of little birds landed on the boat when we were about 20 miles off Cornwall. These were various garden birds which seemed to have got lost in the fog. This one was catching flies

Sailing south from the Menai Straights towards Cornwall

 

We got back to the boat from Shropshire on the 18th of October and set sail from Anglesey at 3 pm on the 21st.

We set sail straight for Cornwall. It was a bit of a lumpy passage but with East and North East winds, which were favourable. We arrived 48 hours later in St. Ives Cornwall (200 miles). It was thick fog as we approached, so couldn’t see the place till we were right there. We went ashore for a walk and a pint. Lovely place even shrouded as it was in dark fog. We plan to go back there by land, to see the Tate St/ Ives and Barbara Hepworth’s Garden when we get south to Falmouth. We set off the following morning to round Land’s End. We had a good passage at first then a total trial trying to round the Lizard peninsula! Finally at 8 am the following day  we arrived in Helford River ( a few miles to the south of Falmouth). Had a great couple of days there and have now moved to St. Mawes, tomorrow to Falmouth.

We have lots of things to think about and organise before we head south again on the next leg of the trip, and also many places, and things we want to see here. As the forecast is not good for early this week, we are happy to have this time in hand.
