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 ...
… saw this monster basking in a moment of sunshine. He seemed a fun guy.
There was a much more attractive funghi hidden amongst the fallen leaves.
A memorial seat / bench with flowers.
Lots of red berries to keep the birds happy ...
though most of the flowers were past their best.
Tall trees as I left the gardens to retrace my steps.
I went via Boscawen Park, which eventually lead me back to ...
… Sunny Corner on the Truro River. Though it didn't feel particularly sunny. A pleasant walk though.
