There is a proverb: my enemy's enemy is my friend. Is that the reason the Cornish didn't resist the Spanish in 1595? That wasn't a big invasion - more like a commando raid. They sailed away again. There's an invasion at this time from England! Lots of holiday makers. Social distancing? Have they heard of it? Look at these people on the platform at St Erth station. They are waiting for a train to take them to St Ives. Not everyone comes by train, there are lots of cars as well. Can you see a field under a cloud shadow? It's a campsite for those who'd like to sleep in tents. The people will go down the hill for the beach. On another hill there's the golf club for those with enough money. Golf is a good game for distancing yourself from other people. Often St Agnes Beacon is a good place to be all alone. Car parks by the coast are full and there's a crowd on every beach.
