I decided to have a wander into the town today. The weather has perked up – well it’s not raining – but it’s not quite lie out by the pool conditions just yet.
I started out at the bottom of the hill and had a walk on the beach. It’s a lovely place, great for a family. As is customary, I had a look for any interesting shells to take home for Alice, There were loads, so I was disappointed. Most were cockle shells but there were a few scallops too, all quite a bit larger than the one’s I’ve found on the beaches at home though. I love hunting for ‘treasure’ on the beach, it’s so therapeutic and exciting looking at all the shapes and colours and how they change in the seawater. I could do this for hours, but my handbag was starting to get heavy with all my finds, so I had a quick rationalise of them and headed off looking for holiday gifts for the family at home.
I saw an interesting shop selling tie-die and batik style clothing, so I had to have a look. I found a lovely dress for Alice with a smocked top which I reckon she’ll be able to use as a skirt as she gets taller. Bartering is not my forte, but I managed to get 3 Euros off the price. Well, I was pleased anyway! I’m sure Alice ill love the dress too.
It was starting to get hot, so I popped into a shop for a postcard – I know I’ll speak to home but I still think it’s nice to send a postcard. Mind you, I’m rubbish at putting them in the right boxes. Fingers crossed it arrives home before I do. I checked where the postbox was this time.
Time to have a drink and a swim to cool off now I reckon!
