The Railway Inn at Ketton, Rutland
Suitable refreshed our next stop is on the North Yorkshire Moors to get directions from a sailor who knew his way around the world.
Captain Cook's Monument
Before we go too far I want us to stop in the town of Fowey on Cornwall's south coast for a pint or two with the King of Prussia.
But we don't want to arrive on a day like this.
While we are there you may want to take a trip across the river to see the house in which Daphne du Maurier wrote her first novel, The Loving Spirit.
Look closely at the right-hand edge of the house, almost touching the trees. You should be able to see the figurehead from the schooner Jane Slade; Daphne was inspired to write her book after discovering the wreck of the schooner in the nearby Pont Creek.
If you are inspired by figureheads then you might want to travel on to the Scilly Isles and check out the maritime museum in Tresco Abbey Gardens.
Now it's time for us to go further afield and call at Copenhagen and see what sailors fantasised about.
The Little Mermaid
However it is Stavanger in Norway that is our final port of call.

Of course it looked different in the 1980s when SS Norway was in town.
