EXCUSES AND REASONS
I`m always looking for an excuse to travel to the West Country. I don`t know why I need an excuse. I don`t know why I don`t just get in the car and go there. It`s in my blood, I suppose - somewhere I feel at home, comfortable, welcome. At least by the landscape, if not always by the people.
Now, I thought I had found the perfect excuse, not to say reason, to travel the long and winding road back to Mullion Cove on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall (pictured.) Almost two years ago now, I bought a watch there for £6 in the village shop. "Any problems with it, my dear, you just bring it back," I was told when I completed the purchase.
