Our friend the Captain was in need of a place to stay in London for a while and we, the Moores, in urgent need of a long proper resting holiday after a mad twelvemonth. Therefore, a quick swap was arranged and we are now settled in a small village in the west country.
Upon arrival we were greeted by the sight of what was going to become our local: the Sailors Return. Hooray!
The first day has been spent in getting to know the cottage which surely belonged to a family of pigmies, or perhaps it was the one that inspired Lewis Carroll while writing Alice in Wonderland. We have banged our heads so many times in all the frames of doors and ceilings that I think none of my hats will fit anymore.
The sun was shinning and as the days are so short, a walk was decided. Not a long one as Mrs Moore's knee is still on the path to recovery. Nevertheless it took us two hours to get to Lulworth Cove and further two to get back. The rain came and gave us the most amazing present. A perfect rainbow. Unfortunately it seems that we were on the wrong end as there was no pot with gold shillings to be seen.
