Another day filled with eating, drinking and socialising. All very good fun but not so good for my weight loss.
Another gloriously sunny day, waking up beside the sea. Thank you to Harvey for this delightful photo of these pretty flowers on our windowsill.
The beach first thing.
Muesli and berries for breakfast
Then we joined the others on the beach
Happy with his cousins
Thank you to Jim and Trevor (we left the men and children on the beach) for our long lunch opportunity
We walked up the hill
Stunning views from the restaurant
Lucy treated us to lunch in this wonderful restaurant for our birthday present which was very generous
Bread and butter with wine while we browsed the menu
Lucy and Abi had these little Queenie scallops which were tasty
I went for the mackerel and quail’s egg salad which was delicious
Then we all shared the fried fish main. This was supposedly for 2 people but it was more than enough for 3. We had monkfish, turbot and John Dory and every piece was delicious.
Served with perfectly cooked fries
Followed by cherry pie and custard which was sublime
Abi had Dorset knobs with Cheddar and Black Cow vodka which was made from milk, extraordinarily. It tasted fantastic.
Thank you Lucy for such a lovely lunch and thank you both for so much fun. Holly, you were missed.
We had a bit of a stumble back along the high path to the apartment
After a revivatory cuppa we headed to the cabin and relaxed over a leisurely supper
My Uncle and Aunty own this charming cabin overlooking the beach at Lyme Regis and we met there for supper with my cousin Miranda and her 2 girls.
i can’t believe we ate more after our lunch but we did!
We ended with cake and coffee. It was a lovely evening.
Then Lucy and Abi came back for a sleepover at the apartment, leaving our children with the menfolk up the hill. I have so much to be grateful for today; the generosity of my sister Lucy, the kindness of Jim and Trevor looking after the children, more hospitality from Uncle Clive and Aunty Hillary, and the hours of very happy time spent with my family. Thank you all.
Just one big WOW! What a perfect day. 🙂 x
