Time for another dovegreyreader excursion and here's a generous opportunity to breath deeply of some pure sea air through a haze of Cap'n Jaspar's fish and chips as we head for Plymouth's Barbican and the pole-dancing prawn.Unusual architectural features abound now in Plymouth city centre currently being re-modelled after one blitz failed to do the job satisfactorily.Much of it at such a bizarre angle that you feel mildly distracted, very disorientated and vaguely seasick as you drive round. I suspect this may have been the intention.
The Offspringette has whizzed in from Glasgow for a few days so off we set for a Croc-around .We did our "tour" of the famous sites, Mayflowers Steps et al.Had Cap'n Jaspar's been there in 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers may just have had second thoughts about departing.
