Nancy’s unsunk Tilley
When on one of the Greek islands last summer, my Tilley Hat was blown off my head into the harbour into deep water. It was a brand-new Tilley Hat, and I was loath to lose it, but it floated away in deep water, and was apparently going to travel gently out to sea.
Is it going to sink, was my second question after deciding there was no hope of recovery. Indeed, as promised, it floated! Gently across the harbour, by great good luck ever closer it moved towards the shore, where I eventually retrieved, unsunk and undamaged.
