This is an amusing blog for me to type, I set up the pictures and as I was not there am asking Bear for the commentary, here goes.....Pepe was quite unwell after her Indian meal last night and at the last minute decided it was folly to risk a cruise on the Helford Passage boat trip. Cecily, Martin and I set off from Falmouth jetty, wound our way past the anchorage and left the town behind.
