Week 5: Penzance to Falmouth - Day 32

Word of the day: Castle
Maenporth to Falmouth
6 miles

On the path from Maenporth to Swanpool we came across this memorial to Falmouth's Home Guard who "...watched 1000 dawns across these great waters which form our country's moat." One of an increasing number of relics from WW2.

One or two showers this morning but a sharp horizon for the first time this week. Stopped at Pendennis Point to sketch the fortifications with St Mawes in the background. 

A good first week back on the path, finishing on a beautifully sunny day in Falmouth. I managed to get enough sketching done to take back to the studio. Hopefully, the studio work will be easier than last time as I have already established a way of working. The next blog post will be from the studio.
