Day Seven – The Domain of Dr Syn
Rolled out of the cold dark recording studio and made our way back into Deal to collect our trunks from the Astor Theatre. Thankyou so much to the Cocos Lovers for putting us up for the night even though we didn’t even meet them really. Bound for the Ship Inn Dymchurch today which was the domain of Dr Syn the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh. Just finished reading Russell Thorndike’s novel of the smuggler hero. The pub was certainly coining in on its appearance in the novel with all sorts of trinkets including key rings, beautifully hand crafted scarecrows with a chocolate surprise and sticks of themed rock.
A few drinks in and the diddle started to roll to a rather small but most appreciative audience. We drunk and danced the night away again with the locals. Loads of fun was had and the staff at The Ship Inn were really appreciative of the Skinnies as you can see below.
Dymchurch we love you and we will return. x x x
