The UK has been basking in glorious warm sunshine – at last! After a very long cold winter, we struggled through a very cool, dull Spring. Now all of a sudden the sun has come out and it is hot, hot hot!
We went to Brighton on Sunday. We actually went there for a whisky tasting session! I bought it for Maurice’s birthday this week.
He does rather love his whiskies and is fairly knowledgeable about the different styles of whisky and the distillation and aging processes. We tasted 5 very different scotch whiskies. (Needless to say we took the train to Brighton!) The tastings took place in the very atmospheric wine cellar of one of the seafront hotels. It was quite nice to go down to the cool, dark cellar after the bright hot sunshine outside.
We wouldn’t normally venture very far from home on a hot weekend day, for the simple reason it’s what everyone else does! It was amazing to see the beach so full of people!
Must go for a ride on that big wheel next time we’re there.
