The evening (Friday) passed uneventful with all the other members going home leaving us on our own until another couple arrived about 9 pm. It was another evening spent playing trivial pursuit,listening to music and drinking some bevvies before turning in around 11pm. After a restless nights sleep and a visit to the loo,it was an early start for me today (Saturday) sitting here on my own with just a coffee for company and the ticking clock at 5.50am. Its a little bit misty this morning so hopefully it’ll be a nice day,but just as I write the mist has lifted and its seems to be a little cloudy. Its so peaceful this morning and already I’ve seen Rabbits,heard the tweeting of the birds, a squawk from the crow, noticed a spider in the kitchen so the day is off to a good start and its still warm enough to be naked.
After a couple of coffees and a walk round I returned to the chalet at around 7-15 and Ginny woke up. We breakfasted on bacon sandwiches expertly cook on the stove in the chalet then moved out onto the lawn for a morning of sunbathing. Morning turned into afternoon aided with the help of a shower and frequent swims in the pool as the temperature grows steadily higher and higher. As the day wore on more and more members turned up at the gate,we spotted some couples we’d not see in ages and as the numbers grew you could see how much everyone was enjoying the glorious sunshine.
At around 6 we decided that was enough sunshine and had a shower and thought about dinner. We’d stay here and dined on supplies we’d either bought with us on Thursday or food we’d trekked out to buy on Friday evening,so we thought this time we’d go out and have a meal in a restaurant in a town nearby. Leaving the grounds we head for Billericay high street, some 3 miles away. After a pint and a half in the Blue Boar (Wetherspoons) we headed to the Kosthuree Indian restaurant 100 yards further up the High Street. The meal was a good one and after an hour we were heading back to Arcadians eager to get our clothes off once again. After a couple of beers (cider for her,Suffolk stout for me it was time to head back to the chalet for some sleep.
