Today the ship stopped at Falmouth, England.  Falmouth is on the extreme southwest coast of England.  It is right before you get to the area known as Lands End.  For centuries it was a huge Tin mining area.  The tin played out about 30 years ago and now the town is a fishing and tourist town.  It has one main street that runs one block off the port area.  We had real fish and chips and pasty's, a kind of shepherds pie, and they we both very good.  Tomorrow we stop in Le Havre, France which is our last stop before the cruise ends in South Hampton.  From South Hampton we fly to Amsterdam where we are going to see the tulip fields and wind mills.  Look at some of the pictures we took in Falmouth.  Check bay for more posts.
