UK Trip Days 7 & 8: London to Exeter to Falmouth

 Day 7 entailed a hectic Tube ride (i.e. weekend station construction...) back to Heathrow to rent a car and drive to Exeter via Bournemouth and a stopover at beautiful Corfe Castle. Unfortunately, no time for any sketches on this day, although I did enjoy the driving.

Day 8 started off with Sunday worship at Exeter Cathedral (a beautiful service made all the more memorable because of Mothering Day in the UK) and a leisurely lunch in front of the church yard, followed by the remaining drive to our destination, Falmouth. Its early evening main street on Sunday was a little empty (shops had closed) but we managed to get to a great fish and chips restaurant with a wonderful waterfront sketch-worthy view.
A wharf, some pubs, Penryn River, and rolling hills beyond...
