We managed a dry walk first thing, but then the rain came and it rained and rained the morning away. However by about two o’ clock, it dried up and a weak sun made enough effort for us to be encouraged to seize the moment and dash off to Woolacombe to make the most of it!
We weren’t alone in grabbing the chance, but as we have found before, most people tend to gravitate around the car park end at Putsborough or to the village end at Woolacombe, so parking along Marine Drive and joining the beach towards the middle is a pretty good strategy!
Poppydog happily ran up and down the beach, chasing a ball (with another one in her mouth!), whilst I ambled along behind.
Two thoughts of the day:
What a funny nation we are, I popped into Tesco’s today (the third time this week!) and the shelves are still nearly all bare! How can the country closing down for three days due to the weather the week before last have such a long lasting impact?
Really fancied having roast chicken for dinner tomorrow, but no fresh poultry available, so roast beef ready meal it is!
