A little gem of a corner

We loved this little corner opposite the harbour in St Mawes and wondered how many similar place still exist? As we waited for the ferry to Falmouth on Sunday morning, we watched the crew take out a gig from this building, the boathouse of the Roseland Gig Club.

How interesting that the petrol price could be painted on the pump, rather than shown using sticky lines which enable the garage owner to increase the price in seconds. I'd not mind paying 2/3d a gallon today though - Mark just did the calculation for all the youngsters out there who don't do pounds, shillings, pence and gallons. It works out at two and a half pence per litre.

No wonder it's sold out.
