Trains, planes, more planes and afterwards more trains. Three countries, America, Ireland and England, about 24 hours of traveling we arrived in Penzance, a quaint (isn't every town around England?) small town of Cornwall, south end of England.
|Paddington Station -- beginning of our train trip to Cornwall|
|Arrival -- at long last|
|View of Penzance from train station|
|Our first night|
|The path back to Penzance -- naturally, with John in charge, we took the scenic route|
After a quick walk around, we decided we liked Gulval better. Back to the hotel, dinner was a delicious meal served by a French Maitre D', and for dessert we walked around the very ancient church and had the oportunity to hear and see seven (or 8) bell ringers practice.
|Calling home the old fashioned way|
|Watching bell-ringer practice|

|Strolling around Gulval|
|Lots of flowers to look at in this nation of gardeners.|
Tomorrow we leave the land and start our water leg of the journey.
