All great adventurers return with souvenirs of their travels; Raleigh returned with Tobacco, Drake with the Potato, and Cook with Australia.
As Australia itself had already been taken, Lady Magnon needed to look around for other spoils, and came away with the above. Sauces, honey, creams, beef jerky (for me), bikkies, tea, nuts, magazines, and just about anything else she could force into her luggage.
After 6 weeks away, 12 different flights, and non-stop fun, her return to France was heralded by an unbelievably vicious hail storm.
I've just been out to check the compact Royce; I was quite expecting it to look like the surface of a golf ball, but all is OK..... unlike Haddock's where certain plants are looking a little shredded.
Welcome home Lady Magnon.
