Family Party – those who stayed over night and went for a walk on Sunday morning

Travelled down with Lena and Tom. Kate came with Sarah and family. Sleeping arrangements were debated and negotiated. I slept in a tent. Lena and Tom did the same.


Woke up this morning – a rare thing happened

Evening Primrose at Formby

It is a very rare event when you wake up in Padfield and the first thoughts that you have when you look out of the window are – GO TO THE BEACH. That is what happened this morning and there was a mad rush to get there before the rest of this over populated isle and to return before one became gridlocked. We went to Formby a place I took students to over 30 years ago. I still remembered the natter jack toads in the slacks. The beach was heaving but we were more interested in the dunes.
