Mrs C, hereinafter referred to as Sue, has taken a few days off to enjoy the sunshine, and I am under strict instructions to do the same.

I must say that after rushing about to launch Accomplice to Murder,  I’m ready to step away from the computer for a little while. Even so, I’ve popped in to share a few pics with you.

Sue and I took a trip to the seaside town of Dawlish. We dined in a nice Indian restaurant, but the real purpose of our visit was to watch a play called All The Great Books. It was just my cup of tea. A humorous romp through roughly ninety classic books, with the three actors rapidly changing costumes and delivering plenty of laughs. I love seeing live performances, and it was great to visit this small theatre which had been beautifully restored. There was a lovely community atmosphere to the place, and I think the production was run by an amateur company. I’m all in favour of amateur dramatical societies, or ‘am dram’ as it’s often called. The performers tend to be pretty good, and they give it all they’ve got, so you have an excellent evening out and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Afterwards, we strolled through the park and along the stream, which was decorated with strings of lights, hoping to see the sea, but we were thwarted by a high fence. All we could see were bulldozers, diggers and a pile driver. I suspect the works are to reinforce and protect the railway line that runs along the coast, right next to the sea. The line is often hit by the tides and damaged, especially in winter, and it’s the only rail route in and out of Devon. Important work, but I feel for the holiday makers who must be disappointed.
