It’s 1.15 in the afternoon and we have just finished lunch. I found some sausages at the bottom of the meat drawer so we’ve had those with mash and beans. I was ready for it.
We saw the New Year in then had to wait for the bubbly to settle before any hope of sleep. Fireworks were still being let off at 1am.
This morning saw the New Year’s Day charity dip for the local RNLI so we walked up to the beach armed with the camera. Not so many people participating as in previous years, but the atmosphere was good from what we could tell. A lot of enthusiastic people (and a couple of dogs) went in and a lot of shivering bodies came out. I haven’t checked out the photos yet, so they will come in a separate post.
We walked back along the shoreline, marveling at the different patterns of sand art, realising we would never see them again as they were unique and would be washed away by the next tide. There were umpteen worm casts, birdie footprints, partial shells and the occasional evidence of razor fish. Two guys were digging for bait using ‘the bicycle pump’, and another was casting his line by the post in my above pictures.
When we got home, we were so hot, bothered, uncomfortable and sweaty, we both had showers. I tried the new shampoo today, Tresemme for Deep Cleansing normal to greasy hair. It’s promising, lathered well and left my locks squeaky clean.
Hope 2022 is off to a good start for you and there aren’t too many hangovers this morning.
