Aunt Bessie. Mrs Roger’s Mother She was related to almost everybody in the village.

She would sit on a dining chair dangerously tilting on the back legs  and  tell stories of the Cove, of under the window seat of a passage to the Cove in smuggling days.

Staying with Mrs Rogers was to be spoilt by a wonderful cook and great hospitality.
