The Lull before the Storm.

Below one more photo of the cafe, how many other area's of Britain can you sit outside drinking tea in late January. Notice the owners, fly the flag very patriotic.

on sunday (last week) the weather improved long enough (1/2 a day) for us to go on one of our sea front walks. The day was very bright at times but a bit breezy.We walked along our back (river)beach, then cut through the point car park onto the sea wall, from here we walked the length of the promenade. The weather was just about good enough to grab a mug of tea sitting outside of our favourite little sea front outdoor cafe. This is seen at the end of the short video, with me,and at the back the cafe proprieter.

Joke of the day.

Always wear clean underwear in public, especially when working under
your vehicle., From the Daily News comes this story of a Walsall
couple who drove their car to Asda, only to have their car break down
in the car park., The husband told his wife to carry on with the
shopping while he fixed the car., The wife returned later to see a
small group of people near the car., On closer inspection, she saw a
pair of hairy legs protruding from under the chassis., Unfortunately,
although the man was in shorts, his lack of underpants turned his
private parts into glaringly public ones., Unable to stand the
embarrassment, she dutifully stepped forward, quickly put her hand UP
his shorts, and tucked everything back into place., On regaining her
feet, she looked across the bonnet and found herself staring at her
husband who was standing idly by., The RAC mechanic, however, had to
have three stitches in his forehead
