I kid you not – there is bookshop of this name in East Looe. It wasn’t open when I passed by preternaturally early in the day, having been awakened at dawn or near it by BBC Cornwall wanting a one sentence answer to the simple question of how to prevent theft from bookshops.
Back to the absolutely splendid Anchor Lights B&B for a sunny breakfast overlooking the harbour. Perfect. On to Liskeard to visit Ian Marr – warm welcome, some very interesting books, and yet more purchases. Cheque-book now bruised, battered and bleeding, unlikely to survive the trip. Then to Charles Cox, ducks, dog, family and books at Treglasta.
Sterling work from Jane in finding it – not even on our map. Another friendly welcome – such a distinctive stock – and out came the cheque-book again.
Re-entered Devon intent on finding the long-delayed cream-tea.
And found it somewhere in the middle of Dartmoor. Perfect again and well worth the wait.
