Jake was 18 today, so much celebration. Before he was up, the dining room was decorated with flags and bunting, and he opened presents over breakfast. Later in the day his father persuaded him to buy his first round of drinks, and this ceremony took place in this very quaint pub in the middle of Looe. In the evening we had a meal in a good pub close to where we are staying.
In Looe we went on a trip on a glass bottomed boat. Normous and I spent our honeymoon in Looe in 1962 when it was a busy little fishing port with a few hotels. Today it was seething with day trippers. I wish we hadn't come back and spoilt the memory.
