Our Greek Odyssey is slowly drawing nigh, Castle Greysquirrel beckons, and as is our custom whenever we are on holiday, we like to send a message in a bottle out to sea, because it always seems to be such a romantic thing to do…….
…… but this year we decided to use a very, very small bottle, hoping that its lightness would help to afford it safe passage ‘ere the tempest tossed seas.
Then we each held it in turn for a moment or two to wish it a safe and glorious journey to exotic climes where someone might spot it and retrieve it, their hearts filled with romantic curiosity.
We then handed the bottle to Nigel, giving him the honour of throwing it into the turquoise of turquoisest sea ………… who waited patiently for a suitably appropriate wave to carry it out across, we hope, the oceans! Farewell little bottle, bon voyage et bonne chance!
