It was a glorious morning and we made our way to Falmouth for the Oyster Festival
As we were taking a look in the harbour we spotted this super old Lifeboat - she is RNLB Herbert John - ex Youghal Ireland 1952-1966 so amazing to see how far the boats have come since then
Dominating the pontoons was this amazing Super Yacht Ebony Shine
Still very full of boats considering it's October - the dark clouds behind never came our way
Newlyn company Stevensons were there with a nice display of fish
and Crab from The Cornish Crab Company in Newlyn
The Seafood available from the St Michael's Hotel
There they are - kings for the day - fresh Falmouth Oysters - to be eaten raw - Jim prefers his cooked
Cookery demonstration by Chris Eden, from the Driftwood Hotel, Portscatho
Wonderful woodwork in the craft area of the marquee - don't you love little bunny !
Really super little chap
We bought some Pasties from this stall
Not this one though
Nor this one
We bought Wild Boar and Apple and Lamb and Cranberry
Then there were cakes ! Not as many stalls as previous years for some reason
We walked the dogs back to the car park
and along this pretty little walk, which the dogs always enjoy - we then put them into the car, which was parked under the trees to keep them cool
We then went to Rick Steins Fish and Chip Restaurant, where Jim had Tempura Oysters and Parmesan Oysters - and shared my chips !
I had the plaice Goujons for a change
Cor ! Pudding ! Jim had Affogato and I had Sticky toffee Pudding
Autumn colours by the car park
We then drove round to Gullingvase Beach where it looked and felt like a Summers day
We've all done it !
Ebony Shine passing St Anthony Light on her way to Harlingen
She was so big she dwarfed this rather nice "Gin Palace"
Wooster was thrilled when he found an old tennis ball
Not too sure about the little waves, but he enjoyed himself
We walked back to the car through the lovely Queen Mary's Gardens
Really imaculate garden
Later on Jim took the dogs up the hill
It was still really warm.
