Sunday14 Jan temp 14-15c(57-59f)

Today was such a lovely day,
Never mind January its more like May,
Not a cloud about the sky,
Just so lovely warm and dry.

We went for a stroll down by the sea,
Just the wife the dog and me,
Lots of others had the same idea,
Along the sea front past the pier.

If this is how global warming will be,
A little of this will sure do me,
Perhaps we wont need Lanzarote any more,
Stay at home on dear Devons Shore.

After a while our throats got dry,
This sea front cafe we soon did spy,
A cup of their finest we did take,
Scones,cream and a bit of cake.
