Summer's last hurrah..........

Another gorgeous day weatherwise, made moreso by coming so late in the season and after a lengthy period of cold, wet and windy weather.

So, we finished work early and headed off down to the seafront with Small Dog, to savour the warm sun and balmy breeze..... it's not often you can wear a sleeveless top, shorts and sandals in late September in the UK without feeling just a tad chilly.

Even the normally quiet beach at West St. Leonards was busy and there were lots of people swimming in the sea and sunbathing on the shingle.  It was lovely just strolling along the promenade, although it wasn't so much of a walk as a 'drag', since Small Dog has to pick up 'wee mails' at every pillar and post, and leave her contribution to the thread.

After our walk, with the sun just beginning to dip down towards Eastbourne in the west, we just sat in the car with all the windows open, shooting the breeze.  Sometimes it's the simplest pleasures in life which mean the most........
