Fascinating Fact of the Day About Falmouth:
|This is the sign for the produce garden products. We dropped the appropriate coins in the letterbox after we’d selected a few vegetables.
|Plant prices were marked and offered for sale in the homeowner’s front garden.
|This sign is located in the garden by the plants for sale.

As a matter of fact, for the first time since the surgery on February 12, 2019, Tom and I went for a walk in the neighborhood, taking the photos included here yesterday and today (post found here).
No, during the 30-minute walk, I wasn’t free of pain in my legs, but I did considerably better than I’d done while on tour in St. Petersburg. The hills are steep in most Falmouth based on the terracing of homes for the outstanding ocean views. Walking on the local streets is a challenge for most people, let alone me in my weakened condition.
|Fuzzy burgundy blossom was spotted on the walk. Any ideas what this may be?
Today, we’ll stay in on a rainy day. There’s no point in risking a fall on the cobblestone streets in the rain. Instead, I’m busy around the house, organizing and repacking my messy suitcase. We leave here in nine days for the following location, but fortunately, we’ll be driving, not flying.
|We made a reservation for the “Sunday Roast” which we’d had at a restaurant in South Kensington, London, in 2014 at the Andover Arms. Here’s the link from that date. Fantastic meal. I hope to be so once again. Check back on Monday for details.
We love the beautiful location, and the house is fulfilling our needs with good Wi-Fi, constant electricity, running water, and a very comfortable bed. The fridge is tiny, but we’ve adapted, and every three days, we shop for perishables.
Have a pleasant day and evening.
