900 score but great fun. The whole blog tour has been fun and I have enjoyed taking part. Hopefully if my cough getting better does not scare Mack off we will be at Greenway again on Wednesday.
I will also be visiting Torquay early next month to search out some other sites. I spent too much time strolling on the Princess Pier last visit, it is a hard life when you are retired.;o)

Fine quiz! I stumbled upon the number of Miss Marple novels (I must say I'm not much of a fan of hers, I prefer the Belgian with little grey cells)
