Today I…am checking off my English holiday list. (It is slightly different to the caribbean holiday list… Thats another story)
Paddled in the sea
Ate ice cream(s)
Gained a red nose from exposure to sun/sea breezes. Extra points if it peels when you get back to work.
Collected pebble or shell from beach. This should rattle around in pocket or handbag for several months
Ate chips on sea front bonus point if harrassed by seagull.
Sampled local delicacy ie pasty, cream tea, etc. This week it was Dorset apple cake. Seriously good…apple, cinnamon, moist crumbly cake with crunchy brown sugar topping.
You cannot starve in Dorset. Every other shop is a bakery, tea shop, pub or cafe. We have enjoyed every mouthful!! Independent butchers fishmongers and delis. Olives, cheese, bread- a taste of heaven in Dorset and Devon.
I have enjoyed some quality time with my lovely husband. Watching a dvd with a glass of wine or two. Series one of Ashes to Ashes….we fired up the quattro with ‘the gene genie’- brilliant. Rested and relaxed…gained a few pounds spent a few pounds…a proper holiday.
Off to find some wifi. Back to reality tomorrow.
