Promenade


Sometimes you just need to find a place in order to watch the world walk by.
Having only myself to cater for Mary and I took ourselves off to the Promenade at lunchtime.
It was overcast and spitting with rain, but Colwyn Bay was fairly busy with visitors so I found an empty bench and set out lunch
I had an advacado and cheese bagel and a skinny coffee.
Mary had a packet of sliced ham.
And we both sat for an absolute age and watched the world promenade in front of us.

  2. It's a good thing to have someone to people-watch with.

    My cat isn't there yet.

  4. What a good way to spend the afternoon. I love a spot of people watching and being by the seaside makes it perfect - and with a sweet dog to keep you company too.

  6. Just sitting and watching the world go by is a great thing to do. I'm always amazed watching people go here and there and wondering what they are doing, where they are going, what their story is. I could people watch for hours.

  7. Stop and smell the surf along the way.

  8. People watching is good for the soul. Everyone who passes by has a story to be told (that you make up for them).

  9. As Cro Magnon said, "a story you make up for them " ...
    Sometimes my husband and I would be sitting somewhere and end up people watching and he would make this little commentary, as if they were models or on stage ... he would have me falling over laughing ..

  13. Passers-by who noticed you must have thought "Now there's a man who's contented with life!" And, to a degree, I think they'd be right.

  16. It used to be that seaside visitors ate fish and chips or candyfloss... now they go for avocado and cheese bagels with a skinny coffee. What is the world coming to?

  19. I'm impressed that young Mary would sit and watch with you! I would have thought she'd be wanting to tear around.

    Sounds like a lovely way to spend some time. And to think that a few weeks ago you couldn't have sat there without a snowsuit on.

  20. Sounds pleasant, but I'm surprised Mary didn't get restless just sitting and looking. I gather she's an older dog.

  21. What a lovely afternoon for you and Mary. It sounds like you are going to miss the area when you move. I hope you and the Professor can find a special place where you will all be happy when you move.

  22. Colwyn Bay Beach is lovely, one of my favourite beaches along the north wales coast and we used to enjoy just sitting in the car for a while enjoying the view.

  23. It sounds blissful. For you, and for Mary.

  24. Sounds blissful. You can't beat a bit of people watching at the seaside ... especially with a tasty snack and a canine companion ❤

  25. Why didn't you take George???? I love him :)

  26. A seaside view, a picnic in the car and some companionable silence; how lovely! It sounds like you're embracing retirement.

  27. Lucky you! Amazes me that some people don't like to be alone. I love brief respites like you get to just do what I want and not have to worry about any other person for a while.

  28. One of those ham slices would have gone so well with the cheese and avo!
    It sounds delightful, dogs are great company

  29. What a lovely way to spend a beautiful day. People watching is fun. I even enjoy it when I go on vacation. Now I'm curious, What kind of ham did Mary have? And how are the fish and chips in the area?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sounds idyllic. I could use a day like that. Can I borrow Mary? And an avocado. And a cheese bagel.
