A quiet day of planning and conversation ~

Marazion town hall
I woke up this morning to the sound of seagulls. That is better than any alarm clock! The night was cool and quiet, and I slept very well, only becoming restless in the very early hours of the morning.
We woke up slowly, taking our time dressing, and then made our way out to find some breakfast.

The cafe we hoped to try was not open, so we ended up back at the Godolphin Arms, and had a delicious breakfast. We also had the same, adorable waiter from the night before.  We didn't catch his name, but did find out he is from Madeira.  The waiters and waitresses back home could take a lesson from over here.  These people don't get tipped, and yet I have had better service, and nothing but smiles, from every person who has waited on me, since arriving in England.

WW I & II Memorial
After breakfast we took a short walk through the village, were we spotted a World War memorial. These can be found in almost every village in England. Later, we stopped at the post office/store to pick up a few grocery items.  The rest of the day was spent, relaxing, washing clothes, and talking. We made a grocery list for the Tesco Superstore for tomorrow, and checked into bus schedules and other details for day trips, etc.

Supper was easy, delicious, and afterwards we had a walk on the beach and through part of the village.  Now it's time to get a shower and settle down to read a little bit before bed.
Tomorrow is another day!

Stay tuned...

  1. It sounds as if you're having a wonderful time. I always find the war memorials in English towns and villages very poignant. On the Sunday of Remembrance Day (or the nearest Sunday to it) we were driving through Norfolk and Suffolk's small towns and were caught up in one parade and then saw the beautiful wreaths in others.
