Coast walk for a cup of tea
(Summary blog only. Last full blog was Day 0368).
I don’t know how we manage to accumulate so much admin but we do. So, for the third day on the trot, I spent the morning working through papers, which had to be knocked out of the way before we could spend the afternoon doing something more enjoyable.
Anyway, the paperwork was eventually finished – by which time it was lunchtime. At that point, as the weather was looking good, we decided to head out for a short walk through the demesne, down Swords Road, and then through Seabury to the coast by the Centra shop on the corner of Old Yellow Walls Road. Here, as the shop has a decent coffee machine, we decided to treat ourselves to refreshments which we enjoyed on a bench in the park overlooking the estuary.
A quick walk round the shore got us back to the flat by 6pm, just in time for a video catch up with family in Canada. So now, after a light tea (we are both trying to lose a little weight) we are going to watch a bit of TV whilst tonight’s concert thrashes its way to a finale (it’s Blondie and Sting, by the way). Hopefully no more paperwork for a little while, at least.
