We're back; we've had a lovely day - the sea was flat calm, not a ripple. There was a mist that hid the horizon and the quality of light was beautiful.
We had drinks in the theatre bar on the pier and watched the little groups of turnstones running about busily - just love their bright orange legs. Then we went to Galton Blakiston's No 1 for lunch. OH had tempura whitebait with wasabi mayo and I had cockle popcorn. Then he had cod in batter and minted mushy peas, i had battered hake and we shared a portion of very light and fluffy chip shop style chips.
After that a lazy walk along the prom, a couple of pints in the Kings Head, and a visit to the proper sweet shop for a big wedge of cherry and almond nougat, a box of rose Turkish Delight and a block of creamy fudge to keep us sweet over Christmas.
I've spoken to Wonky ... they've all been working inside today, rubbing down and treating garden furniture, so not as strenuous as last week's work, so she's been able to cope ok. Apparently while she was poorly her colleagues were cutting back some berried variegated holly, so saved a big bag full for her.
