Woke this morning to a very Hogwarts like atmosphere. As it was a B&B we went for breakfast. Seriously. The breakfast hall looked straight out of Harry Potter.

Hilary notices them climbing over one car and scrawling something on it's back window. As we order our drinks, one comes in to tell the shop girl that someone has kicked in a car outside then leaves... Sophia has already called the police, having watched the drama unfold. ...
