Beach feast

May 13, 2012

Unrelenting, blue, cloudless skies (reflected in the sea) – it’s a beach day! (finally).  We made a last minute decision to head off somewhere and got the map out to look at our options –  and ended up in Bantham, as usual. It is the best beach. We have a tide clock which will tell you the state of the tide at a given place and it’s set to Bantham, but it doesn’t always work. Today it was only half an hour out which is pretty damn good – we arrived just after high tide. The beach was washed and empty so we easily found a good spot for digging, beachcombing and picnicking.

We had cream cheese (with garlic and herbs) and orange mini plum tomato sandwiches – the wholemeal sunflower seed bread was from Seeds Bakery which has definitely gone up a notch of late – and shared a pack of cherry tomato and herb flavoured crisps (which weren’t as nice as I thought they might be). There were also muffins, a pain au chocolat and satsumas (fairtrade).  “A veritable feast” declared the beloved. “Can I have the pain au chocolat?” said Arlo – ever fearful of being made to eat something dodgy that might be hiding in a muffin.

There were lots of cuttlefish bones on the beach which look like mini surfboards – Bantham is a surfing beach. Arlo took some time out from digging to prop some up against a bit of wood to complete my beach picture.
