|By the Sea
|Riddle - (Answer at bottom of page)
As I was walking to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives.
On each wife's back were seven sacks,
And in each sack were seven cats.
Cats, sacks, man, wives,
How many were going to St. Ives?
|Land's End, Cornwall, is located on the
most western tip of the English mainland -
next stop, moving west, is Newfoundland.
Sign reads, "First and last
refreshment house in England."
|Left & above, the ruins of Tintagel Castle,
said to be the birthplace of King Arthur.
It's true! The crown has made it clear,
The climate must be perfect all the year.
A law was made a distant moon ago, here
July and August cannot be too hot.
And there's a legal limit to the snow -
The winter is forbidden till December
And exits March the second on the dot.
By order, summer lingers through September -
I know it sounds a little bit bizarre,
But in Camelot, that's how conditions are.
In short, there's simply not
A more congenial spot
For happy-ever-aftering than here -

How many were going to St. Ives? Only one...the man,
wives, sacks and cats were headed in the other direction.
