A Trip to The Barbican, Plymouth, Devon - 6th April 2007

For the first time in over a year, Nosher wanders down to Plymouth to see Mother and Mike. This time, Isobel comes along to see some of Nosher's old stomping ground, so we wander around Plymouth Hoe and the Barbican for a while before heading off via the Torpoint Ferry to Cornwall. Once in Cornwall, we find a spot on the wide ranges of sand at Whitsand Bay and hang out for a while, looking at the rock pools and sea-creatures clinging to the rocks. Upon our return, Mike has created another impressive feast of fish, and to round off the night he gets out a small still and rustles up a spot of on-demand fire-water for our pleasure
