Having Fun

Odi was running short of food so we stopped on our way down to Camber and did some shopping at the Aldi in Ore.

This is the first time I'd ever bought ten frozen pizzas at a go.

I like the caravan park at Camber- it's nicely kept and has good facilities- but almost every extra comes at a steep price: £5.00 for a brief bounce on the trampolines, £5.00 for half an hour's hire of a pedal cycle- and so on. You think you're buying a cheap holiday but you ain't.

(When I was a kid the slot machines on Brighton pier were just a penny a go and...O, shut up, Granddad.)

Odi was dead set on hiring one of the four-seater cycles- and I said "No" but she wore me down. I sat all cramped up at the front with Miguel and she and Peter sat behind and did the pedalling- and we wobbled round the park- with Ailz riding alongside, outpacing us on her electric scooter- and I couldn't help wondering how this was any improvement on walking.
