Firstly, thank you to Ann from johnnyjumpsup, the book arrived today, I look forward to reading it.
Dan's out for a meal this evening so I decided I'd have a treat day too. I had an appointment to get my hair chopped first thing, when I left there I just keep walking into the town. I'd checked the tide times so knew when there might be a view of the sea.
I gave myself a budget of £5. My first port of call was the charity shop to pick up Landscape magazine I'd noticed yesterday, one I'd never heard of before, but at 99p for a current copy (Sept/Oct 2016) I thought I'd give it a go. The two ladies in the shop asked me what I was doing, so I said I was going to the beach.
"What for?" they asked.
"Because all my friends that don't live near the beach think it's very odd that I only go every so often."
"Is there anything on?"
"Oh!" they said, looking at each other in a quizzical fashion!
So I headed off to the cafe in the old tram stop
Then I sat on the pier in the sun
I looked out at the approaching sea, although the tide is not very high today
Did a bit of people watching
Then headed onto the sand
I had a little paddle, the water was gorgeous
With the remaining £2 I treated myself to something to savour as I sit in the shade at home
