Rural life: Bread

This is a picture of The Old Man's bread. He bakes very good bread. No machine ... no ... noo. Hands on breadmaking and sourdough starter. At the moment we have seedy topped milk loaf, crusty white, sour rye, and bits of saffron bun in stock. This quantity is unusual. But friends called in on a visit the other day, and you never know what you will need.

They left quite late in the starry rural dark. I hope they found their way back to their rented cottage in the creeky byways of Helford. They hadn't brought their torch.
