St Marys Gardens, St Mawes and Trelissick Gardens

Went for my usual early morning walk .. today with Ponders.. wanted to locate St Marys Gardens....





Which I did.. a small area but beautifully planted












Later on back to the hotel for the coach which was taking us to the dock at Falmouth

A memorial on the quayside..



and off we went on the St Mawes Ferry  the Cornish Flag

and as we got nearer St Mawes, there was St Mawes Castle.. again another King Henry VIII Fort..




Having alighted, I walked with a fellow holiday maker, up to St Mawes Castle - through the very pretty streets ...





St Mawes Castle..












My new friend and I sat an had an ice cream and were kept company by this Robin

I then wandered back through the town ..









Finally time to go back to the coach.. Fido and Frank liked the view... Ponders, regrettably had accidentally been left behind in room



and from there after a 20 minute delay while we waited for 2 missing passengers... who were waiting in the wrong place, we set off for Trelissick Gardens

First stop a cuppa and a fruit scone..



































This is one of the National Trust holiday 'cottages' for rent!!




Beautiful day and some very pretty scenery and lovely gardens
