Summers early arrival, an Anniversary and we meet a Gentleman of the Road

The weekend has brought the most fab weather. Clear blue skies, sparkling seas and our 28th wedding anniversary!! A seafood lunch and 2 glasses of sauvignon blanc at lunchtime overlooking Summerleaze beach here in Bude ( should have taken my camera!) made for a perfect way to spend it . We have had another warmer summer-like day today, to kick start the tourist season with Easter approaching next weekend. Certainly for the past two or three years we have had our summer in the late Spring, so we are hoping this pattern is not being repeated this year! Six more months of this please!! It’s always lovely to meet new people too and Don got talking to a “gentleman of the road” – Thomas. He is a regular summer visitor to Bude and frequents the beach where he plays backgammon with the local kids and stays whatever the weather. A friend fixed his trolley last year when the wheel became wobbly and its still in one piece. He has some great stories to tell and although he chooses to live an alternative life, I hope people don’t judge him by it as he is very friendly.
