All who work, live or visit The Cobbles are affectionately known as 'Cobblers.' Time to introduce some of the characters and 'going ons.'
Looking at potential props for the show, Zoe stumbled upon the ShellieScope again. 'I'm sure I can find a use for this...I could look for pirates, search for villains or discover new lands. I'll just take a quick peep.'
As Zoe put the spyglass to her eye she was astounded to see a picture of someone sailing along on a raft. Removing the device Zoe discovered that there was no other person or raft to be seen in the theater.
'How strange !' she remarked to no one in particular, 'either I'm seeing things or I could just have discovered a magical ShellieScope or telescope! I wonder who I saw on the raft? Oh there's a book over there with a picture of him and his pals on the cover.'
'What a terrific idea it would be if all on the Cobbles helped one another. I could perform as a clown to attract customers for the cafe and shops. The cafe could help provide refreshments for my theater and the shops could advertise and promote my shows. Wow! What fun. Now that is what I would call a tickety boo of an idea. Before I go what do you think of my clown routine?'
When an ice cream sign appeared outside one of the shops Zoe jumped to the conclusion that an ice cream parlor would be opening soon. Once she read the notice board inside the shop her suspicions were confirmed.
' Knickerbocker glories
for one and all,
maybe a choc ice if
you want something small,
try our cornets or
a ninety nine,
want a double flake?
Well that's just fine.
Delighted that the summer season was starting Zoe wondered what other delights and excitements the other shops would be offering. Speaking out loud Zoe announced, 'Now that the day's chores are all done and dusted, I'll have a wander down the Cobbles to browse at a few of the shops. I must visit 'Sand and Seagulls' along with 'Made by HRM' the people in the cafe raved about their lovely items. Can't stand about nattering all day so 'BBFN' or bye bye for now !'
