I promised you...
08 July 2011 | Falmouth UK
I promised you some pictures of Wild Song, so here are a couple taken at St Mawes before I came across to Falmouth, and before the wind shifted and made the anchorage a little on the uncomfortable side.
There is a small queue at the marina office (Port Pendennis) for computer access - we've all been holed up here a few days now waiting for the weather to improve and low to shift away NEward to give us a good slant and a flatter sea for a good getaway. Many people here with their eyes in distant horizons - just spoken to one couple off to Cape Town, another to the Canaries. It really is a maritime crossroads.
On the basis of the latest forecasts, we have decided to sail tomorrow Saturday, so now begins the long flog up and down the town with bread, cabbages and all the other fresh stuff. It's too comfortable here. I'd be almost happy to stay.
