The excitement of the King Harry Ferry

It's really a floating bridge pulled across on a chain.  It crosses between Trelissick and the Roseland peninsula in Cornwall saving about 26 miles of driving, it is the King Harry Ferry.
You're only on it for about ten minutes but it's so beautiful, even on a grey day like this one

this is the ferry

and this is a strangely beached looking HUGE ship in the river, I have no idea why it is there or whether the high tide brings in enough water for it to leave.

I like to think that these are the ferrymen's cottages and not holiday cottages for a change

it's such a lovely ten minutes out of a busy day
