Admiral of the Fleet the Earl of Caraway and Stoke is, as one might expect being an Admiral, a man of the sea.

When, after an admirable pot-luck Sunday lunch, Robin descends to the depths of mentioning what happened on their honeymoon, the result is inevitable. Finding his independence once more, Robin links up with Phyllis and her friends and dabbles in some far from innocent matchmaking
