Well Davy, I DID park on the Strand beach - the beach was one of the venues for Danny Boyle's project of Pages on the Sand so there were quite a lot of cars about.
What a moving project it was. I didn't actually see the major portrait (I think there was 1 at every venue, of a local person lost in the war) but the smaller, individual 'grave plots' gave some indication of the scale of the loss. When the bugler played the last post as the sun was going down.....
I hope we never forget.
Anyway - the champagne corks didn't work - do you use Jeraboams or whatever the massive ones are called?! But there was no dry sand flying about so hopefully OK. I realised I park in Spain on the sand so stopped worrying about it!
Fish n chips at Harry's Shack - yummy!! Chips done in beef dripping.... Yes, I know, but they were the best in years.
And it was lovely to meet you in person at the MCS meet at the weekend - as I said, I'd you down in my head as short, plump and lovely. You are only the 3rd!!
