Down a side street, as I often am, a flight of steps lead up to a fast food shop. The vertical faces of the steps have been painted pale blue, as much for aesthetic reasons as to enhance their visibility to revellers during Newquay’s very numerous, very drunken nights.
But the shop is closed and, thwarted by the two chains, the hungry (together with the just plain greedy) must champ and chomp elsewhere.
Facing squarely out into the Atlantic’s swells, Newquay is a famous UK surfing destination, and the westerlies that swirl and roar around this little town are salt-laden.
So the chains are corroded, and the rain and spray have dripped the corrosion’s rusty hues down over the step below.
