Today was a summer’s day straight out of fiction; The Famous Five, Swallows and Amazons, Cider with Rosie, The Darling Buds of May; the fantasy days which dominated our childhood holidays. The warm sun was tempered by a fresh breeze coming off the sea bringing with it the sounds of the beach; raucous kayakers, ecstatic children, excited dogs. Walkers accelerated as they passed towards the bay, their pace quickening not only due to gravity but the prospect of a paddle in the soothing sea. An infectious joy, making the most of this glorious weather and not worrying how long it will last. Carpe Diem!
