On our short journey on a steam train to Corfe Castle, Gary was explaining to Alex where we were going and what we were going to see.
‘We are visiting a castle that someone broke.’
‘I didn’t break it.’ Alex immediately piped up.
That set the tone for the adventure visit to the old castle. Mika happy to take photos of anything that interested her and quite a few of herself. Gary, Robert and Dan hunted down a secret trail of discovery and Susan befriended a couple and proceeded to give them a very detailed explanation of the why, where and how of Dorset. I took a few photos and motivated everyone on. Just your typical visit to Corfe Castle and the quaint village that surrounds it.
Interesting fact is that the castle was built in 938 AD and only now, some 1200 odd years later, is it in need of some renovations. Master builders!
On another note, some people just stink. Yep, they have a strong body odour. All is not lost, as there is some amazing body sprays out there and they offer a 12 hour protection. .
Picture this story, man meets the most beautiful girl and as with all young love, signs get ignored and then they get married. Problems being one of them still stinks, as time goes by and fresh lust gives way to reflection, the smell becomes more prominent.
The moral of this story is that you can trust your nose better than your eyes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but your nose hold the answers. If someone stinks, how can you live with them? Remember the time you stood in dog poo, you know you can’t think about anything until you get rid of the smell. You can trust your nose more than your eyes, as eyes don’t focus on the right things. The number of times my eyes are busy looking at the computer and forget to check on the the stove, it’s my nose that says 'Something is burning'. My nose never gets tired either. After fourteen or fifteen hours my eyes need to rest, yet the nose keeps going.
Corfe and all its intrigue, there you have it.
