Hello, I'm back with some new clogs! Having spent a very cold night on my last walk around the streets, and more recently my visit to the waterfront on the 8th, I have decided to do some more investigating of who lives where. After the recent clear, crisp, cold nights when walking was a pleasure, (as long as you could move briskly), tonight has reverted back to a true November fog. This is thicker and more sulphurous than any I have encountered on my recent travels. A man coming out of an Ale House has just tried to sell me some cockles, but I declined and he has disappeared into the dismal blanket of fog shouting his wares! Carts and horse drawn carriages trundle past, but apart from the glimmer of light from carriage lamps which seem to float unattached through the gloom, nothing can be seen. Some distant church bell is ringing for evensong and this sound mingles uneasily with mariners singing their shanties in the nearby Ale House. Anyway, enough of this, I must get on my way.

Phew! that was a wander and a half! Straining my eyes to read the door numbers, and getting strange looks from the occupants of the houses peering out through chinks in the curtains. The evil fog has left an awful taste in the mouth, and my clothes smell as though I have been toiling in works extracting tar from coal. It is again most convenient that the lights of a small tavern beckon, and hopefully a jug or two of welcome ale. I'll be back soon.
