Beautiful story of a couple who, upon the husband's retiring, move to Morecambe from Leeds. The story is simple enough, but the magic is in the dialog between the two main characters.
They obviously are still very happy with each other, but express regret and confusion at the way their world has changed. Leeds seems to be (literally) falling down around them as they leave town for their new home by the beach.
Their lives have changed so little since the husband started work in the 40s, that when it comes time to make this big change they find the whole world has changed around them.
It's quietly devastating.
