I notice something that looks like a church
so i sit on the wall in front.
Then i see an inscription on the wall
'bargeman killed 1726'
It makes me feel uncomfortable
so i go to the door to look in.
There is a man there loading water bottles
As i look in he says.
"It is not what it seems you know."
Most places aren't, i think.
"I just thought i would come in for a look."
"It is not a church
even though it might look like one."He says.
"It says it is a mission to seafarers
and i like to think
there is a little of the nautical in me.
He laughs and i
sail away.
