Coincidental Days Out


Dear reader,  I apologise for my absence.  The day to day has overwhelmed our lives recently, but two weeks ago Mr Him and I did  find time to visit the more westerly of the British Isles.  This occurred on a Friday.  

You now are no doubt imagining us on a jaunt in a car for two  pedaling our way down the motorway. Stop.  It did not happen like that. Not at all.  For one thing we didn't go together.  For another we went to entirely different countries and for a third Mr Him is not up to pedaling at the moment in his new modelling boots.  



That Friday, which is now know as West Country Friday saw Mr Him drive to Wales where he bought us Welsh cakes and returned home with them to the south east of England.  I meanwhile caught a train to Bournemouth where I bought clotted cream to accompany the Welsh cakes and returned home.  




Why did we do this?  In both cases our work sent us to these tropical locations and coincidentally the day coincided.  This is not the only Coincidental Day we've had this month. 

In Sussex there are two areas of sand dune beaches, as far as I know.  Littlehampton and Camber. They are about 3 hours drive apart and we live in the middle. Last Sunday our oldest, the Young Online shopping Genius took it upon herself and her boyfriend the Automotive Engineer to visit Camber with her collie. In the meantime Mr Him took it upon himself and me to visit Littlehampton with his mum. 

Both the collie and the mum had grand days out as can be seen by the pictures.

Ooh more West Country ice cream, the west country is known for its creamy cream
seaside plants looking tired now its Autumn

New harbour wall which is a flood defence. See the road on the right and sea on the sea
Lighthoues. This reminded me of Hilton Head Island a little

short pier as piers go


I know you want to see Mr Him and his mum.  Here you are. 



Camber

There is just one picture of Camber but it is stunning.

    1. It was my first trip to the shore there. I thought it very much like American holiday seaside towns. The harbour wall must be a new addition since you went there. The shops were getting flooded apparently.

    1. Thank you. The mundane of life does get in the way of blogging.

  4. Sometimes I think coincidences are creepy. But then, none of mine have delivered welsh cakes and clotted cream.
    You are right about that last photo. Stunning.

    1. I think all coincidental days should involve Welsh cakes and clotted cream.

  6. What an action-packed life you lead - or maybe you only write about the action bits and the rest of the time you are lying on sofa sipping martini made by Mr Him.....
    I love Camber, but you have to wade nearly to France to get the water above your knees!

    1. we have a busy life that is full of 9 to 5 of work and commuting. If i wrote about the day to day Id be banned from blogger. This is why i'm a bit irregular. I write when i have something to tell, when we have been out.
