Of course it really happened, I mean to say, it's like saying Santa doesn't really live at the North Pole!!
Tide was nearly full. Mist lay in a grey scarf along the line of the cliffs. .. and they walked home hand in hand through the slanting shadows of the new darkness.
I'm just now starting in on "The Four Swans" on my latest read through from end to end. It's quite amazing how many little unknown, or unremembered, snippets leap off the pages each time they are re-read. Specifically in "Warleggan" and "The Black Moon" it is really quite disturbing what a totally amoral and nasty piece of work George is, rather like JR without JR's nice points ! ! ! Many different examples abound, but his heartless marrying off of Morwenna is particularly evil. How Elisabeth can have switched her allegiance so utterly from the Ross she declared her lasting feelings for at the ?Trevaunance? dinner party seems to me to be completely out of character.
And while mentioning Morwenna, I still react with complete distaste every time Christopher Biggins appears on the box in some guise or another. I know Zoe adores him every time he appears on ITT, but he just makes me want to throw up. Which I suppose demonstrates just how effective he was all those forty odd years ago in his nauseous performance as the even more nauseous Ossie Whitworth.
