Last day of May, and five months of the year gone already.
Not much on the agenda today, so we walked up to the prom to see what was what, and it wasn’t as bad as yesterday. However, still a lot of strange faces about and social distancing went by the wayside again.
Down by the clubhouse, the emergency ramp is a makeshift car park again, and there are quite a few swimmers in the sea.
We found it increasingly annoying and frustrating that we gave everyone approaching or sitting on the sidelines plenty of room, but did cyclists or families out for a stroll? Nope. Had to walk along the same line as us, and one idiot on a bike came so close to me I could count the hairs on his chin. We had no idea he was there as he didn’t ring his bell or announce his presence in any way.
The bikers are in town, black leather clad figures practicing the rules as they sat on the wall six feet apart and those standing were an equal distance away from their friends. It made a pleasant change and we certainly haven’t got a problem with that.
The sausages and chipolatas were sprawled semi naked on the beach. You could hear their fat sizzle and one guy was so shiny with oil, you could see the sun’s reflection.
Alongside him lay a female with boobs vying to make their own sand castles. Yuk.
The prom cafes are all open now, as is the one in the park and all the public loos. Camper vans are on the roads, and we reckon next week will see an influx of visitors on a much larger scale. We intend to stay home, venturing out only to walk the dog. We don’t need any shopping, and even if we did, it wouldn’t be anything vital as we’ve replaced everything as we’ve used it.
On with the day then.
Fish for dinner today with wedges and baked beans. I had my tomato pasta yesterday, so today’s fish will be a treat.
