We had a fab time too!!! What a top place! The wind favoured the location all weekend so it looked like a Caribbean Beach on Saturday (and Sunday also !)
Hey Slimtim you Yarmouth heathen!!! That was MINT in the Pimms!!! Not stinging nettles!!!
Noticed you parked that fancy new RIB of yours out in the shipping lane!!! And then waded in (head well above water) while everyone else needed snorkels!!!!
Pete & Vivienne had stormed the beaches when we arrived and the territory was well occupied (indeed fully furnished
) and fires lit!
Biggles took on a head sea from Hayling but arrived full of cheer! Students Jimbo, Laser & Lee were very helpful on the BBQ front and outdid the seagulls by quickly polishing off anything of a leftover nature!
Anto did excellent quality control of the Pimms!!!
But each vintage was heartily consumed!! Carly's boat could be heard leaving its South Coast berth
and he insisted to Nicki he had to drive it slowly up and down the beach a few times allegedly to search for safe anchorage !
Sarah, Nautibuoy, Zippy,Gwen, Martin and others were wakeboarding stars with Sarah leading the way apparently! The Ringo looked liked loads of fun also!
Ian M and Ann- lovely to meet ye again! Martin Humphrey walked over with his labrador to chat to us. Thanks for the navigation help and hope your boat is back soon!
Whiteshoes, Elaine, Sophie & Saph got the rounders going and it was all very civilised until we stopped for 'tea'!!! Some blatant cheating ensued including rugby tackling which isn't in the rule book !!!
Ciara and Ethan were stars of the show and were extremely patient with all the adults all day! Lovely kids you have Chris and Debs (& thanks for help Debs!!!)
Despite eating lots of things that were no good for us at all there was still room for strawberries and cream after rounders, chocolate birthday cake and a drop of bubbly as the sun went down !
Yesterday morning we brought brekkie to the beach but the poor campers were rained out & gone! So we cleaned the beach of any leftovers and wandered over to the Bay Cafe for a top cuppa ! We also had a look round Seaview.
Heard from Sir Hal who had been camping out also
and watched the Red Arrows over Pompey before lazing on the beach all day with leftovers and the papers
Thanks everyone for your fab company, food, games and fun! And for letting us know you arrived home safe also(& texts!)!!!
Top weekend! Birthday Boy had a ball ! Photos to follow!!!
