Following general exhaustion and local news from a visiting workman, we scrapped the original plan of the hike and instead trundled into Mousehole village for the Rowing Regatta and Vintage Car Rally. If the team wanted to experience England, this was it.
Locals and tourists milled about the harbour , ice creams and raffle tickets were sold, and the silver band played under overcast skies while a gaggle of wrapped-up organisers sat on top of the sea wall and shouted instructions to the waiting boats in the harbour and bay.
We got into the swing of things by balancing on the sea wall and cheering on our individual favourites, before heading back for a barbecue in the garden.
Today we had a free day in Mousehole.. we watched rowing near the harbour and there was a 'silver band'..
The team remain in Mousehole for a calm creative day, as well as visiting the annual village Rowing Regatta and Vintage Car Rally to experience something truly English!
