Sunday 5 October 2014
We both slept really well. I was up first (as usual!) made a wet and breakfast, then changed into my cycling gear ready for Ray to arrive at 1000. He'd dried my wet cycling gear overnight, so shoes, helmet and gloves on, we headed off into the warm sunshine. We did our normal route, but this time road along Lee seafront, then took the Haven route to Titchfield. With our usual loo stop in Warsash we were soon on our way back towards Lee. When I was preparing my bike this morning, I noticed the rear tyre wall was bulging, so I popped in to Solent Cycles on the seafront to buy a new one - eye wateringly expensive but needs must. We had a coffee and bacon sarnie sat outside the Bluey in the sunshine before cycling back to Rays to change the tyre and clean the bikes. Back at the campsite I locked the bike back into the rack and showered and changed, we chilled out ready for Ray and Julie to pick us up later to go out to the Bun Penny for dinner.
The Bun Penny was as good as always. I had a Caesar Salad, Cathy had chicken & mushroom pie, Julie a roast beef dinner and Ray scampi & chips. We even all had a pudding. It was lovely to spend time with them and we're now back in the van listening to some music. The sun will be setting shortly and I don't think it'll be too long before we turn in, ready for out trip to France tomorrow.
One final note, Cathy forgot to pack our Myrtle's Mates Mug - it's all her fault. So we now have to complete a number of tasks to avoid the Myrtle's Walk of Shame. Our first task is to spell out 'Myrtle' as large as possible in whatever form - could be interesting!
