We drove home along the coast via Cape Cornwall, once a tin mine, which was beautiful and wild. We discovered a South African link as a chap called Francis Oates, who was the Chairman of De Beers, built a house here called Porthledden, which he modelled on Cecil Rhodes's house, Groote Schuur, in Cape Town. He planted mesembryanthemums from South Africa, which have naturalised here and are called "Sally my handsome" by the locals who couldn't pronounce mesembryanthemum.
In the twilight and our Sat Nav led us down little narrow roads in the southern Cornwall area and suddenly announced "In 800 yards, take the ferry" which is what we did. It is called the King Harry ferry and it takes cars over the Fal River every 10 minutes.
Still missing you all terribly, but will be home very soon,
lots of love from the Food Lady
