Got up this morning, woke up would definitely not be the correct term. Every time I nodded off the wind rocking the van and driving rain ricocheting off the roof and windows effectively prohibited anything other than cat napping. I took Molly the few hundred yards down into the village, more a suburb of Penzance really, to get the paper. Just made it back without getting wet.
Thought a wander down to the sea would be a good idea as waves are usually impressive, having got down to the coast I couldn't see any obvious vantage points so we caught the bus to Mousehole, pronounced as far as I can gather Mowzull.
The bus service is very good. All day travel for £3.20p plus £0.65p for the dog with regular hourly or half hourly services.
First impressions are of an area that is geared for the holiday trade but with a smattering of local industry. Unlike Devon it is not dominated by second homes, at least not this bit.
We'll see what we can find during the rest of the week.
