Hello folks We've had a simply splendid day
We had some heavy rain on our journey south, but while I was with the Aged Ps (both fine and happy) the sun came out, and by the time OH, friend and I had finished our plaice and chips in the Lord Nelson, the sun was out, temperatures were climbing, it must've been nearly 30C and eating ice cream and laying on the beach was all that was possible.
We lay on the beach until after 5pm - couldn't believe the time - it was still so warm. We drove along the track beside the harbour with the top down before coming home.
I eventually summoned up the energy to concoct a summer vegetable, goat cheese and pasta thing which we ate out on the terrace, washed down with some rosé, watching some newly fledged blackbirds exploring the undergrowth at the back of the pond.
Now I'm on the sofa noodling with you lot while the men wash up.
An especially good thing about today was bumping into an old friend and former neighbour up from Devon for the weekend - what a lovely coincidence
