The Cruise of the Dondevoy

    


I spent the day in a very lazy way, in fact having what I set out for, a holiday. At one o'clock and nine o'clock the bells of the Old Cathedral ring two verses of "Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of Creation", which makes a change from the usual Westminster chimes.

In the evening, two young children, a boy and a girl, spent some time talking to me, and telling me all about their holiday in Skegness. I think they are charming. They tell me that their parents have said that I am "alright to talk to". Their parents are spending their spare time mending a boat, and probably think I am lonely, which I am a bit, besides getting the children from under their feet for a bit. The children have promised to be my friends until I leave. They certainly brighten the place up.
