Rye – day trip from Canterbury. bit down the coast from Dover. very scenic town just across the channel from France and near the scene of the crime – the Battle of Hastings.

changing trains on the return from Rye to Canterbury. this young woman ambushes me on the platform. she screams: “Dad! Dad! where have you been?” runs over and gives me a full body hug. I’m more than a bit shocked, but reply: “gee, we must have lived an alternate reality. btw, daughter what is your name?” she says “Zoe”. We part and I tell her that I would have preferred she made me her older brother, rather than her dad. Celia says: “you’re lucky she didn’t think you were her grandfather!”
and yeah, I still have my wallet.
