We thought that you might like to see this photo of the view from Bournemouth Pier this morning.
As you can see it is a bright and sunny day down here and the surf was up. Luckily sanity prevailed and I wasn’t allowed to get my little ironing board out and go for a surf but there were people out there enjoying the waves. Probably just as much as that man enjoyed his lunch at a local cafe in Poole later on.
Those two threw a cocktail party for the neighbours this week. Uncle Tache did the catering and also supplied the alcohol so the whole thing went with a very definite swing. There was a lot of laughter and chatting going on and we small lads were allowed to look on from afar. Well that is what they thought would happen. In reality we simply adopted our duck and cover technique and had a feast and a half and particularly enjoyed the post dinner liqueurs. A good time was had by all I can tell you.
On Saturday the dynamic duo are off for a day trip to Jersey. They are both looking forward to it as there is good shopping to be had. As they have both gone very “county” recently I am expecting more of the same as they stock up on appropriate props for their new life in the country. I will let you know what happens next week. I am off to play a spirited game of hunt the passport with that man. Should be fun as I know where it is and he doesn’t. Now how much leverage this will give me is another matter but I am going to give it my best shot I can tell you!
