Being joined by Liz, Patrick, Mertz, Soot and Misty! We seldom have company midweek, but having come home early this week and been tempted by promises of waves and high tides Mertz was keen to have another "last swim of the year" and at first The Pirate and I didn't notice that Liz was carrying a towel, but they both joined us in the water. Patrick was far too busy looking after the stools, towels, dogs etc to come in though... Liz felt that if she could sing in a gale force wind on the beach then swimming would be a doddle and she stayed in for longer than Mertz, who shall henceforth be known as The Jessy, DK's term for those who either wear wetsuits, splash and pat, swear and shout or stay in for seconds (the measure of time, not second helpings - just to be clear).
The pub and dates - DK and Legs frequent the same pub as us and seem to actually have moved in recently. Last night they all went for supper and had a wonderful meal, we are being taken there tonight for a meal by friends by way of thank you and so are looking forward to the same quality and enjoying the company of a new romance. The Pirate was nervous about this as they are thanking me for setting them up on a blind date 3 weeks ago and he was concerned that is was too early in the relationship to be making dinner plans. I have confidence, however, that this one could be a laster.
We all said goodbye to DK's friends, who are leaving the village today, so won't be swimming/guarding clothes tomorrow and look forward to seeing them next year.
