What a lovely sunny day we had today. I was able to enjoy a lot of the sunshine by walking in it to St.Leonard’s and back, via the pier to see the yarn bombing.
I made a juice for breakfast but have managed to delete the photo! You’ll have to trust me on that one. Lucy came over and after a coffee, we walked, with Harvey, down to the pier.It was perfect walking weather; sunny and warm but not too hot. I had heard about the yarn bombing on the pier and wanted to see it for myself.It was fantastic. So many local groups, such as primary schools and the scouts, had made pictures, installations or models, such as this charming mermaid. They were then displayed all over the pier.People are so imaginative and creative.
This installation was massive.The beach was surprisingly deserted although it did fill up a lot by late afternoon when it was warm enough to lie outside.Just a few paddle boarders earlier on though as it was too calm for the windsurfers and surfers.I think this merry band of pirates was one of my favourite installations.We had lunch in the Love Cafe on Norman Road. I had the falafels with salad, avocado and pitta bread. The bread and falafels were lovely but the salad was drowned in a very strong vinaigrette which was a shame. I will go to the Love Cafe again as I like it in there and the soy milk latte was excellent. But I will ask for the dressing on the side next time.The reason for walking to St.Leonard’s was to go to the excellent Kino-teatr to see Moonlight. Rebecca met us in there and had saved us good seats in the arm chairs and sofa near the front. Moonlight is not an easy or pleasant watch and I am surprised it won the Oscar for Best Film. I am glad I went but would not see it again.
Dinner was a very quick, easy and uninspiring salad with humous, sweetcorn and potatoes. With a glass of wine plus I had some peanuts before hand.My eating was ok today and the walking very good; I walked over 14,000 steps and hardly sat down all day so a good active day. With lovely friends and great scenery. Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.
