Walking From Sunny Corner on the Truro River at Truro, Cornwall

Sunny Corner on the Truro River, Cornwall

It was a rough old week weather-wise but on Wednesday it eventually stopped. This was fortunate for me as my wife had an appointment in Truro, so I had some free time.

After dropping her off I wandered about starting off at  Sunny Corner on the Truro River - as per the photo above.

The river is tidal so looks very muddy when the tide is out. It's completely different at high tide when there is a lovely boat trip along the river to Falmouth, starting at Truro Quay.

I wandered into Truro city but took the back streets. So it's a back street  photo of some of the houses - showing a river with high walls each side to protect the properties.

I made my way into Victoria Gardens and ...

There was a much more attractive funghi hidden amongst the fallen leaves.

Tall trees as I left the gardens to retrace my steps.

I went via Boscawen Park, which eventually lead me back to ...
