What a Coincidence !

Life is full of coincidences isn't it? One that springs to my mind is the events of a holiday to Lanzarote a few years ago.

As our plane taxied down the runway of East Midlands airport, the pilot introduced himself as Captain Benbow, nearly all of the passengers sniggered, including me. What was probably going through their mind, as it was mine, was the thought he may have looked a bit like Long John Silver from Robert Louis Stephenson's book Treasure Island.

Many of you will know that Stephenson's wonderful story is the tale of Jim Hawkin’s quest for buried treasure that begins at his father’s inn.

Can any of you remember its name?​
