One of his gifts was a Tag game with hand guns, and chest plates. Thanks Auntie Jo! Try being in a caravan with adolescent boys armed and squealing, not pretty. The day has perked with this spectacular view over Padstow harbour.
Out there somewhere two boys are riding the waves. I told their instructor to only bring them in when they are exhausted so the rest of us have dug in to read the papers and drink hot chocolate.
