Hello, teachers! Please help me with the following underlined sentence "Not a soul stirring," excerpted from Scene 7 of "Betrayal" by Harold Pinter.
ROBERT: I went for a trip to Torcello.
JERRY: Oh, really? Lovely place.
ROBERT: Incredible day. I got up very early and―whoomp―right across the lagoon―to Torcello. Not a soul stirring.
JERRY: What’s the ‘whoomp’?
I can't understand the meaning of "Not a soul stirring." But I'm just guessing that it means "The crossing was not a soul-stirring one."
Is it right?
Thank you for your help in advance.
It means that there was nobody else around.
