Yesterday's Guardian today had some truly beautiful travel writing.
"The pace of life isn't a drama here," observed my bloke, contentedly, while we slipped effortlessly from lattes to lunch at the Beach House Cafe, eating oily bruschetta and Thai cod cakes whose mint-laden mayonnaise evoked not Asia but Sunday lunch.
Truly beautiful. And the John Masefield quotes top the article off like a sprinkling of hundreds and thousands on a knickerbocker glory. And all for a mere £2,643 for seven nights in July and August. Dorset is truly God's own country.
And a fantastic full page advertisement on the back page of the Guardian Review:-
"If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to." Dorothy Parker
At Barclays Wealth, we have always recognised that wealth means different things to different people. We can help protect your wealth, grow it, use it and pass it on. And if, like Ms Parker, you are a passionate believer in philanthropic causes, we can even help you give it away.
What wonderful biting wit! Worthy of Mr Wilde or, dare I say it, Ms Parker herself.
