O, I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside On A Miserable Weekday In February

 I thought Hastings out of season on a wintry Tuesday would be empty- but it wasn't. There were even school parties- probably from overseas- following their responsible adults around the Stade while the wind blew icy rain in their faces. We mostly stayed indoors. The place we went for lunch had been a cheap and cheerful café last time we ate there but is now- under the same management but after a refit- offering ambitious seafood dishes and a wine list. Three of us had seafood linguine. It's a long time- possibly decades- since I last peeled a prawn. After lunch we went to the Museum- and it was holding an activities day- and full of parents and kids- and the grandchildren spent twice as long there as we thought they'd manage.
