Yesterday was a fine example of planning v serendipity and also a lesson in observation. We had planned to meet some friends for an early morning dog walk and breakfast. We were very surprised when we arrived , the cafe, which we had never noticed before, was very close to the end of one of our regular dog walks.
The end of our walk is between the double lines, we walk until there is nowhere else to walk. Quite how we have missed the Waypoint Bar and Bistro is beyond me. If I have an excuse it is that there is always loads of things to look at.
The actual Waypoint, itself demands attention. Yesterday the breakfast demanded attention.
There was also a pretty, camp, figurehead to catch the eye.
And pretty yachts, prepping for the Round Britain and Ireland Yacht Race.
No wonder the chatter around the other tables at breakfast were in so many different languages and so animated. When we left to do the gardening, , I almost wished I was going on an epic journey requiring skill and courage. Then I remembered I have neither of those attributes and that my potbound spider plants would not thank me for going off on an unplanned adventure. Later with the gardening achieved we waited to see if a cheeky offer on Ebay would be successful.
It was and the unplanned part of the day began. Our purchase required us to be in Bristol with the van early on Sunday morning. Supper and breakfast and a few clothes were popped in the van and we drove to a farmers field between Bristol and Bath for the evening.
Once we left the traffic jams of the motorways we found a different sort of hold up.
Paella in the sunset was our reward for gardening and driving.
The evening dog walk brought one more surprise for the day.
Definately a day that taught us to be more observational.
