On the 19th May 2012, the Olympic Torch Relay began in Lands End. Throughout the day it made it's way through Cornwall to The Eden Project. It passed through Falmouth and here are just a few shots that I got from the day.
I couldn't tell you anything about sailing, but there were boats about today ... Something along the lines of a couple of weeks of sailing competitions with the potential for there to be some big boats too!
Around midday on April 30th Falmouth Beach Hotel caught fire. It is believed that an incident involving a workman and a blow torch caused the fire which has ruined the building. At its peak, there were 100 firefighters trying to control the blaze which burned well into the night.
