Lara was at home this weekend (yippee) and we had hoped for a beach day on Saturday. The weather was not fine enough to laze around on the beach so instead we headed to the coast anyway and walked from St.Leonard’s to Bexhill. I had wanted to continue the walk we did on Monday all the way to Bexhill but there was not enough time then but today there was.
The weather was ominous but we set off anyway and hoped for the best.Regular readers may remember I was surprised to see some astro turf and a little picket fence beside the beach when I walked past here on Monday; all was revealed as being part of a cafe where you could sit on the bench or in a deckchair and enjoy the sea views. Too soon for a coffee for us so we kept going.I really like this walk.So many charming beach huts.Looking back towards St.Leonard’s.This statue marks the spot of a cafe and this time we were ready for a coffee.Or an ice-cream for some.Onwards to Bexhill.
I love, love, love coastal scenery.
This walk really is delightful. It’s a very easy walk with a path the entire way.It didn’t seem to take long before we were at Bexhill. I could have walked much further as I was enjoying it so much.We beat the rain too so that was lucky.Harvey and I had enjoyed Rocksalt-On-Sea so much last Friday we took Lara there and had another good meal. They were very helpful to me and instead of having the linguine in a creamy sauce, they made it for me vegan style and it was delicious. I fancied a bowl of pasta after a good walk.We caught the train back to St.Leonard’s where it was raining quite hard so instead of going to the Hastings carnival we headed home, via the Kino in Hawkhurst where we watched the BFG. It was brilliant and we all enjoyed it very much.Today we went to visit my Dad and Step-Mother and they took us out to a Chinese restaurant which was excellent. I had vegetable spring rolls followed by aubergine in black bean sauce, with stir fried broccoli and pak choi in garlic and rice. It was all delicious and the company was perfect. Thanks Dad for a very enjoyable lunch.So another weekend comes to an end. I did very well with the exercise but not so well with the eating, particularly the too many delicious snacks at Judy’s on Friday night, the chocolate in the cinema or the crisps and Prosecco at home with Lara on Saturday night. But I enjoyed myself hugely which was important. I will eat better this week and maintain the regular walking.
