... and emailing various photos he had taken of the PM both on the train and in Somerset looking at the floods - a good double day out for him!! So far, so good! 05.31 (or 01.31!) On the plane - somewhere! OK, so it is actually the next day, but it's still 'travelling' so I've continued on here! We have been on the plane for 7ish hours but still have over 6 to go! It's been pretty good really - I've even had a sleep, but I feel pretty c**p at this ...

... Further out on Tintagel Island are the remains of an earlier castle popularly believed to be where King Arthur was born. All the signs stress that he is a mythical character, but I know he was real and looks a lot like Sean Connery.
