Drove across Bodmin Moor to the pub called "Jamaica Inn," scene of the novel by Daphne Du Maurier. The pub was built as a coaching house in 1750.

Then set off again and had our LAST ferry ride - ...

Rock is a pretty little village whose claim to fame is that it is the ferry stop over the estuary from Padstow that we were to visit on a later day, and the home of the famous links golf course St Enodoc, where Dad still plays twice a week.
