Oops...

Despite the wet weather, we decided to go to the seaside yesterday just for a brief visit and some lunch.

Reversing slowly out the drive we heard a loud thud, the kind of noise you might hear when you back into a bicycle parked behind the car. Not that either of us have a bicycle but you know what I mean. We both looked into the side mirrors to see that the gates were still closed - doh!

The car was moved forward again so we could check for damage. The gates were okay and other than a very small bolt shaped mark just below the number plate, no other car damage was evident - phew:)

Once on our way, we negotiated a long queue of held up traffic behind two tractors, wondering if we should turn off and go more onto the back roads.

We persevered and eventually they turned off and soon we were parking. We had planned on a quick walk along the beach before eating but just as we got out the car, heavy rain began to fall and we quickly dived into the cafe, where be both had chilli:
DB had beef and I gave Quorn a go. They both tasted lovely but the quorn had a lot more cumin in it. The amount of food was almost too much for us both and we didn't need much else except tea and toast later in the evening. As it was still raining when we came out, we went home and watched David Goffin of Belgium, win his tennis match. He is another favourite of us both.

    1. It was probably inevitable after not having them for nearly 30 years.

    1. We have to watch well whilst reversing due to a high hedge.
