We shared scallops in cream with bacon and salad, herrings with yoghurt and dill sauce, and a big bowl of steaming mussels in cider. Bread and wine from Guntons (at the Shed, as I've mentioned before, you just order fish and salad - if you want bread and wine, you bring it along with you).
More than could be said for the polystyrene-flavoured takeaway tea, purchased elsewhere, with which we attempted to round off the meal, sitting on a bench by the sea, buffetted by a very brisk, cold wind. It was sooooo horrible we were reluctantly forced to take the taste away by eating lots of chocolate.
Put in a few more hours' work and then set off for the beach again at sundown, with boy and dog. Wind even brisker, and skin-scouringly bitter. Didn't trudge for very long in the end. Retreating to a warm house and a mug of (nice) hot tea quickly seemed like a far, far better idea.
Am paying for all this gadding about by having to work all evening now - but . . . it was well worth it.
