On Sunday, we decided to drive over to Brancaster to visit the beach and have a light lunch. The queues down to the beach car park were horrendous which was odd. Eventually a chap wound down his window to let us know not to bother as the high tide had flooded the approach road. Took an age to turn around.
Ruby needed a walk. So we stopped at Thornham to let her off lead around a permissive field boundary. She had great fun chasing butterflies but as you can imagine, got hot and bothered in the process. She sat in the cars air conditioning for a while to cool down.
Let’s try some fish and chips we thought, so we drove a bit further to pull into a farm shop area. That car park was full of impatient drivers but finally we managed to park in some shade.
We got Ruby out, tied her to a shaded picnic table and went for food. Too early despite them having a frying now sign outside their door.
As you can imagine, it was the final straw so we waited to pull out with a blind corner to our right. We pulled out in front of an approaching police car but not so close to cause a problem. Getting stopped by them might have resulted in me getting arrested as by now, I was venting steam:)
We gave up and returned home.
