Finding myself at a loose end whilst Tommy’s off researching Mead production at the local distilleries, I’ve decided to try a spot of open water swimming around the Cornish coast.
Whilst paddling I happened to bump into a local chap by the name of Cap’ain Poldark. He’s something of a hit around these parts especially with the ladies, mainly due to his stunning good looks, kindly nature and propensity for bathing ‘en plein air’ in the buff.
After our swim Poldark offered to give me a tour of his tin mine. His discourse on subterranean geology was most interesting for the first few minutes but my attention drifted after spotting a discarded Cornish pasty on a nearby rock ledge. These really are a marvel of culinary engineering. Designed to provide a whole dinner in one handy pastry parcel there’s meaty bits on one side and fruity bits on the other. Super yummy!
Tomorrow Ross is going to give me a crash course in looking handsome whilst poncing about in a frock coat.
Morris would love to know what you think of his letters and postcards. Anyone out there a fan of Cap’ain Poldark, or do you favour other literary greats? Morris is hoping to meet up with Sherlock Holmes on his travels. Hit the comments button and let Morris know who you’d like to meet.
