Well, not the whole day at the beach.
It’s been less than summery these past few weeks, so Monday’s fantastic sunshine, coupled with the fact that it was a bank holiday=lots of people hanging out at the shore. Jon and I decided to go down and have a stroll along the promenade to take advantage of the weather. It was such a great day! The stroll was all sorts of interesting…it was a great day for people watching. Babies and fun clothes (not necessarily on the babies) everywhere! We saw a huge black dog as big as a small horse, and I found a playsuit (romper) for 15 pounds that I *really* wanted to buy but we hadn’t gone to an ATM yet. Bummer. I was very intrigued by a local second-hand bookseller, but it’s getting to the point where if I don’t want to put it in my luggage in two weeks, that I probably shouldn’t buy it. And my current reading list is too long anyway, so I put forth some restraint! We followed it up with a drink at one of the beach bars for some more chilling and people watching. Later we met some of Jon’s friends for dinner and a few more drinks before catching the train home. The perfect end of summer kind of day!
