Topics of conversation:
A woman joined us on the beach and was concerned about the health of a seal further up, towards the harbour. It seemed to be wanting to rest on land. I'll go down later to see if it's still there.
Under Dub Wood - the rehearsals continue...and there was some continued rehearsing on the beach too. Whilst DK's No. 1 Son has completed the soundtrack for the village performance I thought that the others might like to hear this version: 

Wild food - the Black Dog Deli has a tasting night tonight, before the official opening tomorrow, we are all very excited and crossing our fingers for the weather. The Pirate's Wife had been in touch to see if I could source some wild garlic again this year for pesto. As we passed the Alexander plants by the bridge we The Pirate reminded me that last year No. 1 Son, patron of the deli, had tried cooking the roots, which had not been a success. The Light Entertainment told us about a book she was given when she moved here that is a wild food foraging/cook book aimed at coastal plants. Whilst I never give away the location of my favourite samphire spot, I may pick her some this year so that she can try the poached egg and samphire dish. 

The Gower Peninsula - close to The Light Entertainment's heart, we discussed it's beauty and the wonderful walking thereabouts. I've never been so was fascinated to hear about the coastline.
