Pifl ’81 Day 4: Candy’s Cotton Candy

Wednesday, January 4th, 2023

A little further inland along Harbour Road is Candy’s Cotton Candy. A gaudy and popular sweet shop run by Candy Chase who originates (as she likes to say) in Cañon City in the Great State of Colorado. She came to Pifl with her husband, a USAF officer seconded to nearby RAF Coterel. Rapidly becoming board she opened her sweet shop and its been a fixture of the town for ten years.

Behind the counter a vast array of jars tempt those with a sweet tooth.  Prebagged mixes can be had for a 2p or 10p piece.  The candy floss machine is rarely switched off during opening hours which start early and end late during the season.

Only someone with a solid background in surveillance or tradecraft would notice that the arrangement of the window and counter Candy with a clear view of all vessels entering and leaving the harbour. She can also easily watch those boarding and leaving the Russian Trawler on the far side of the harbour that has been stranded in the town by a series of mechanical issues for over a year. It has to be entirely coincidental as Candy appears to be as sharp as the Candyfloss she sells.

The stock room at the back of the shop has a locked door that leads into the service corridor dug into the hillside behind Harbour Road.
