As hoped, the sun broke through the clouds and the fog lifted. It is now a beautiful day.
We decided to walk along the prom in the opposite direction today, just to check the sea was still there. I took along the camera, but there wasn’t a single thing worth a shot.

There were a LOT of people about though, most we didn’t recognise, so we were glad we’d masked up. We could hardly see the water because of the mist and out to sea, well, there was nothing but a grey blank wall. Look in the other direction though, and you could see a fair distance.
Down on the beach itself were several groups, some with dogs, some without, enjoying the warm sunshine.
We met up with Lottie and Robin as they came out of the park, and I got trashed again.
Up on the prom we stopped to chat with a blind lady and her retriever. As with most people here, it has taken a while to ‘wear them down’ and engage in conversation, but it was really nice today to stop and chin for about twenty or so minutes.
There were a lot of cyclists around too, again many we didn’t know, so the sun has brought visitors to the town.
On the way home we bumped into our nursing friend. She said her daughter worked in one of the kiosks on the prom and they served over 200 customers yesterday.
As I said yesterday, I can’t wait to get my jab. Although our SOP won’t change, it will make us a little more comfortable around people once the initial few weeks afterwards have passed. Hubby should have his second jab around the middle of May with me at the end of the month. It’s not that far away when you think about it, and with the prospect of a hot and busy summer here, we’ll need as much protection as we can get.
