Captain Cook and his childhood home

I'm very entranced with all things Captain Cook at the moment. It all started with watching an ABC mockumentary on Cook presented by Vanessa Collingridge. Then I read the book on which the program is based. I then read a wonderful book by Marele Day (yes I hadn't heard of her either) called Mrs Cook - The real and Imagined Life of the Captain's Wife. On Sunday we're taking the 2 grandchildren and my dynamic mother who turns 86 this year - who must take credit for my new Cook passion -to the Fitzroy Gardens to see the cottage where James Cook was raised.
