The sun shone BRIGHTON the day we set sail for the ORIENT aboard an ancient ship which had a HULL riddled with holes and a CREWE made up of scotsmen,welshmen and others of the CELTIC race . They were a rowdy bunch and did in fact WREXHAM furniture after a heavy session. They divided up some Ill gotten gains and fought over the LUTON the first night out . One crew member took a blow to the head and lost his WIGAN hat in one go . Donald the second mate soon sorted them out . They settled down to play a strange card game where you had to lay a picture CARDIFF you could go. The only exception was the cabin boy called CLYDE whose job it was to STOKE the boiler . He won our HEARTS with his honest endeavor to conquer his lack of learning by putting the BOLTON his cabin door and practice his READING alone ,almost as if he'd been sent to COVENTRY, Poor pete. On the whole the sea AYR was good for the family and the break suited my MOTHERWELL as she had not had a holiday FORFAR too long . It certainly did her CHESTER lot of good . We PRESTON and finally docked at the NEWPORT which had recently been built at the SOUTHEND of the Island . We headed north through the gaping entrance of the PORTSMOUTH to the path that LEEDS to the fabled residence of the Hawiian monarch . This recently built fortress looked like a NEWCASTLE Though with all the glass it resembled a CRYSTAL PALACE . It was Inhabited by the QUEEN OF THE SOUTH As we approached over the bridge we looked down into the murky depths of the BLACKPOOL We watched some natives take their cattle across the ........ We took subterranean path SUNDERLAND and finally surfaced at the residence. It was looked after by the forest RANGERS dressed in LINCOLN green who greeted us with a friendly ALLOA One of their number was a young girl with a shrill voice and I cant say we liked that .......... of voice . We saw the hills where the WOLVES roamed freely and the second mate .......... look around to where the natives BURY their dead and we poked our heads over the MILLWALL to see the corn being ground . On the pond the signets had their heads under water as SWANSEA quite clearly in the murky water . For tea each night we ate DUNDEE cake ,CHELSEA buns and some OLDHAM which had been there for some time.

I'll try and fnish later!!!
