Mike is the dutiful favorite nephew who understands this idiosyncratic nature of his elderly aunt and, due to his gentle and kind nature, cajoles her into more correct behaviour – even when under engine power (at least for most of the time) – since no one else can.
Due to Mike’s position of favoured nephew she accepts his authority and guidance and so a winning and unique combination is formed.
My most memorable moments
- Bundled up with six layers of clothes in my sleeping bag and still feeling cold.
- Slipping through the water at sunset - along the Jurassic coast to Weymouth.
- Sunrise as we approached Torquay harbour in Torbay.
- All of the above supported by tea and many, many digestive biscuits.
