Elizabeth looked out over the sea at the French and Netherpeople with sadness as they fought and yelled back and forth, "why cannot neighbors live in peace like us? Should we send them tea to sooth their hot tempers," she pondered. But knowing the unruly and unpredictable tempers of men she doubted they could be calmed and learn to act in a civilized manner. She was most appalled by their poor treatment of their women, like nothing more than property to traded for peace or to be ravaged in war - disgusting. Even a English maiden who had gone to live amount the French peoples after meeting a nice French boy in exceptionally tight pants was now submissive and meek in his presence. She knew the English, even in peace, would have to remain strong to ensure foreigners are not tempted by the hearty bodies and cooking English maidens are known for. Rumor of a land known as Spain also led by women however was most heartening news. "Perhaps together we can show these men the proper respect their women folk deserve," she thought as she returned from the beach to inspect progress on the construction of fishing vessels.
