My Own Darling Wife,

  We had an excellent day

yesterday - a real lazy day in some respects

also. I had my early morning cup of tea at

8.15 but did not get up until 9.30. At

11.30 we were off + were at our destination

in time for lunch. After that necessary

preparation we went to the suburbs and

spent a couple of hours walking on the

sands by the sea. The air was lovely &

fresh & there were crowds of people.

We had tea at a little cafe & then went

back to explore the town. That took us

until dinnertime & the dinner over & there

being nothing else to do we came back 

- getting home soon after 10 pm. We had a

good dinner - nicely cooled & well served. I 

was not greatly impressed with the

town though it must have been a good
