Many years ago now, Ben use to live in Exeter – studying at the university for his teaching degree. I was back in the states finishing my own degree, but would steal a weekend or two away to fly back to England to visit.
It was on one such trip that Ben took me on a day trip to the seaside town of Brixham.
It was sunny and bright, and unbeknown to us, there was a pirate festival on at the same time. An old ship was in the harbour, and every now and then would fire a cannon (scaring the living daylights out of myself, but was good fun!). We walked around the town, had a pint in a local pub, and ate fish and chips by the seaside. It was a great day out.
