Reflections on the first beer and other unplanned activities post lockdown.
Today’s walk was a familiar one to us, and to regular blog readers.
At weekends parking is free, in places, on Commercial Street. Giving the perfect opportunity for a circular walk. We do it so many times , and in particular in lockdown that it often gets a blog mention. Today, beyond the walk, we had no plans, we had VV with us so it was pretty much serendipity predicated by the whims of a 20 month old.
As usual, with a weekend visit to Plymouth, the first good coffee of the weekend was purchased at Hutong Cafe. Currently based at The Lord High Admiral.
Energised by a smooth Oat Milk Flat White we set off from Commercial Street.
Normally it is a two coffee walk with a call in at Jacka Bakery for coffee number two.
Today though we walked closer to the harbour of the Barbican.
Serendipity showed us an empty table outside the Maritime Inn. Time for the first beer since Christmas.
It was all the better for being unplanned. We carried on our walk, essential dog walking training is taking place.
Then serendipity struck again, Suphas, a Street Food Cafe also had a seat available out in the sun. Suphas has been on our radar for a while but time and a pandemic have made this our first chance for a visit.
Our drinks, snacks and the environment were vivid in every way.
In addition to these visually vivid comestibles we also ordered Spicy Fruit Salad . As vivid in flavour as these pictures are vivid.
Three hours well spent wandering familiar paths .A Sunday walk in the sunshine.
