Cousins, Kings Nympton and Ripe Corn

22 Jul

Seventy two years ago my cousin, David, and I were christened at the same ceremony  by our Grandfather, Rev W Richards, Vicar of Cockerham Church, Lancashire.  Today we met again after all these years as David and his wife now living in Australia, are visiting the homeland.

We met for lunch in a village in Devon that was about equidistant from our place and where D and T were staying – the delightfully picturesque Kings Nympton.

The drive home through Devon’s lovely lanes took us past some golden fields of corn. Here I have Sting in my head!
