We wound up having supper in Wetherspoon's this evening
Of course the picture above was painted 500 years ago but I think it fairly representative of my day.
I got to the end of Harbour Street, not the business end, saw the crosswall bridge was finally down after all these months, went back to Rook's and got the mother of all hot-dogs with the intention of doing a lunchtime perambulation of the harbour. The good news is the bridge is down, the bad news is that we are not allowed to walk across it.
