Falmouth Harbour

Falmouth harbour on a beautiful Spring day

My wife and I set out on the next of our projects - to take photos for the Western Morning News - "Ports and Harbour" competition. An excellent weather forecast so combined this project with a day out to Falmouth before the "emmets" converge on Cornwall and the place and the roads become overcrowded.
I took lots of photos - resulting in a small selection I considered possible for entry into the competition. The photo I first selected, was one which encompassed that this is a working port but it is also a brilliant area for leisure time activity - so it shows large vessels in the dockyard for repair; and small sailing vessels out in a group ( possibly a training session ).
Falmouth, I understand, is the 3rd largest natural harbour in the world - so it lends itself to a wide range of use.
The port and harbour is world famous, and busy with yacht races and visiting cruise liners. The town too, has lots of interesting shops and refreshment establishments.
Travel a short distance to Pendennis Castle - on the headland and entrance to the port - for more spectacular views.
A veritable visitors paradise. We will return.
