Yesterday, there was much excitement Chez Castle as a postcard landed on the mat in the porch ……..
….. it was from Jan The Fan, who is on holiday in romantic Whitby! Well, I say romantic, but I think I mean it in the romantically spooky sense, as it is heavily steeped in the stuff of mystery, legend and swirling mists, the sort of place someone like Derek Acorah would go for his holidays.
According to a very wide-eyed Nigel it was where, “…..it was foretold many years ago that the young baby Frankincense would be born unto Whitby and he shalt be called Dracula!” However, though I don’t like to put him down, I think Nigel may have got his horror stories a bit mixed up with the bible stories he’s been hearing at Sunday School, bless him!!
