I did tell you last week I had photos to share ... but then my internet let us all down ... so here the are.

I went to Truro with Christine (my friend from Church) We went by train and the weather wasn't too bad, so were able to enjoy the day, although my muscles really suffered afterwards, as we had to stand some of the way home, and after the walking ... !!

Our first stop was the museum ... it may have been smallish, but we were both impressed with both the way it was laid out, as well as the range of items from Cornish history.

No museum is complete without a mummy!

I really love the silver coffee pot with the panniers for sugar and cream!

I so wanted to take that jug home as a souveneir!

I love those swans and their little webbed footprints!

What a great place - I've never been there.

Those footprints were fun, weren't they?

I liked the city, but really not a place to spend a long time, more of a centre for visiting South Cornwall.

We are so lucky here in England, aren't we?
