Pearls Of White

Quick mention for a fella who lit up an overcast day on Felixstowe prom yesterday, one Johnny Depp, the juggling pirate.

Had me and the kids enthralled for 20 mins with an impromptu performance, inc. an albino cannonball spun on his finger and some accomplished five ball technique. Impressive skills & slapstick and some even silkier patter. Liked his gift of a yellow balloon sculpture to a young volunteer ("Is your name Ben Sherman? What are you doing with his shirt?"), asking the lad, "what's your favourite colour in the whole wide yellow?". Blue, came the reply.

Like Sir Bob, he didn't want money either. Top unexpected entertainment.
