Camilla had been invited to name the new St Mawes Ferry. They arrived the night before and stayed at the Trasnton Hotel in the village. In the morning they walked along to the quay, stopping to chat to people. They visited the Post Office, the Bakery and the Fishmongers and they were greeted by the school children who sang a pirate sone to them.

It was great fun to be involved in the Pilot Cutter Review and World Championships again. Last year Esther sdailed on Agnes whilst we followed the fleet with Polbream.
This year Esther was invited to photograph the fleet from a RIB with the race officers. Ken managed to hitch a lift aboard Agnes for the Sunday afternoon race.
It was a beautiful sunny day with a stiff breeze. Esther got some terrific photos and Ken ended up in a great shot featured in Classic Boat magazine!
We arrived in Cornwall just in time to enjoy Esther's graduation at Falmouth.
It was such fun to experience all the celebrations, we love being proud parents, we can't think where our girls get all their cleverness and creativity!

Our arrival in St Mawes coincided with my sister, Kate's visit from New Zealand so it was great to have her and Mum to stay soon after we arrived.
The pictures are of Kate and Mum on the St Mawes Ferry and Jane, Mum and Kate outside St Just Church.
As you will see, I am playing 'catch up' as we have not posted a blog for some time. So here are some photos from our arrival in St Mawes.
