We were in Cornwall the first few days in May. The bluebells were amazing – a fragrant carpet of blue covering the forest floor.
On Sunday some private gardens were opened for charity. We toured a couple of them. The climate in Cornwall is very mild and they can grow a variety of tropical plants there.
It doesn't seem fair, somehow, since they are way north of Maine.
Falmouth Maritime Museum
The Falmouth Maritime Museum is right in the harbour and cramped for floor space, so many of the boats are suspended in a great hall. It's an intriguing way to display the smaller boats.
There is also a tower on one end that houses the elevator and has a lighthouse living space at the top ...
