Got up at 6, and cycled with Penelope to Ramsey, in thin grey fog. It is many years since I got as far into the Tendring Hundred. The land looks well, as much as I could see of it. Ramsey Windmill still exists, and is apparently still working.
Got back to Lawford at 9.30, and made a hearty breakfast of porridge and marmalade.
Mrs. Pat Green, J.P. came to lunch. She was a great friend of the [archaeologist] the late Reginald Smith, F.S.A., who died at her house two years ago.
