The coastline where I live is very beautiful, so at the beginning of the summer, I like to take a boat trip so that I can see it from the sea.
At the end of the war she was de-commissioned and along with many other similar boats was auctioned off and turned into a pleasure boat.
It was all aboard for the hour and fifteen minute trip along the South Devon Coastline to Dartmouth.
This is the mouth of the Dart with its ancient Medieval Castles guarding the entrance.
Then it was back to the boat for a leisurely cruise home.
I got back tired and hungry and a little sunburned on my nose and find a parcel by my door.
Forget being tired,,,, forget the sunburn,,,, eat later,,,, but first open the parcel!
I had admired a beautiful tag that she had made and was delighted and honoured when I received an email asking for my address so she could send it to me.
I guess you want to see inside the box,,,, like me you can't wait!
Well here's what was inside.
It doesn't end there......
