Fascinating Fact of the Day About Falmouth:
originally known as Smithwick, home to the Killigrew family at Arwenack Manor.
In 1613 John Killigrew began to build houses around the harbor, despite
opposition from the ancient towns of Helston, Penryn and Truro and a new town
began to immerge, split into two hamlets called Smithicke and Pennycomequick.
Finally, in 1660, King Charles II decreed that they should be known as Falmouth.”

|Plant prices were marked and offered for sale in the homeowner’s front garden.|

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 totally 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 of 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.

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 next location but fortunately, we’ll be driving, not flying.
|We made a reservation for the “Sunday Roast” which we’d had at a restaurant while in South Kensington, London in 2014 at the Andover Arms. Here’s the link from that date. Fantastic meal. Hope to be so once again. Check back on Monday for details.|
We’re loving 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.
