Default st Pirans bay

I thought I would start a single thread for my town to keep it all in one place so I thought I would tell you a bit about it this is not easy for me as I am dyslexic that is why my post are very short I hate writing anything sorry for any spelling mistakes. I am sure you are all fed up
of seeing my pictures but there are some in my album if any one wants to look.

The town is in Cornwall my favourite place and is named st Pirans Bay it is a small town by the sea in the 1950s. At no1 Lighthouse road is the general store owned by Cynthia and Robert (bob) Cynthia runs the shop and bob is a fisherman. They have 3 children Martin is training to be a doctor but works as the lifeguard when he is home from university in the summer. Henry likes surfing he rents out deck chairs and surfboards on the beach and generally dose as little as possible. Sandra is the youngest and is still at school and likes going out with her best friend Brenda and meting boys. They live above the shop there home is a bit old fashioned but very comfortable the kettle is always on and everyone is welcome Cynthia runs the general store but rents out part of it to Dave The baker but he is busy baking so he employs Bessie to work in the shop Bessie had to go bake to work when her husband left her (but we don’t talk about that). The other side of the shop is rented out to Roy the butcher who is helped by Billy the butcher’s boy.
I will tell you about no2 in the next post.

It's great to know the stories behind the families. Did Roxanne have pretensions of royalty when naming the children after the queen and her sister? I like poor Jean's 'love triangle' too.
