From her deckchair by the beach hut Nanny watched her charges with the help of a pair of rather elderly field glasses, which had once been carried by her late, lamented fiance Captain Smart. Time had passed, but the optics were undimmed and still provided a good, sharp image - she could see the girls perfectly well, but they were quite unaware that they were being observed.
Away from the confines of day-to-day domestic life the young ladies were in very high spirits and their behaviour was becoming anything but ladylike. As she watched she pondered what action she should take when they returned to their guest house.
A severe chastisement was called for, but would her strap deliver the lesson that was required? Perhaps she should ask her landlady to send out for a cane.
