Went down into town to find the ferry was cancelled, it's fine at the Falmouth side but not over at St Mawes. Folk were in fear of being drowned. Which reminds me of an old Cornish saying.
'Those who have no fear of the sea are often drowned...Those that fear the sea are only drowned now and again.'
As I had promised Molly a boat ride we took the ferry over to Flushing. No, not the one with eels, soapy tasting cheese and clogs, the Cornish one.
I forget whether this is a Board of Trade or Admiral Fitzroy barometer. Once most ports would have had one, the majority have been stolen or vandalised so this was a welcome sight.
We caught the ferry and retired to the pub. Ostensibly to warm up, as I'm sure you will understand.
