Thanks Cassie and Oregonhometown.
I grew up in Morecambe -- which is one of the places I'll be visiting on the northern part of the tour, and that was just a small drop down to the beach. Our house was on the sea front, so I went there a lot. Took a walk along the Whitby sands into town this morning, enjoying more of the Goths. Such great energy in town today, with everyone having a good time.
I do agree about modern slang in historicals. It can slip by -- some probably slips by me and my copy editor now and then -- but we need to be careful. It's so jarring to those of us who recognize it.
