The End of the Summer Holidays

There is always a point in the summer holidays when you suddenly realise that you only have a short period of time to go before you have to go back to the rat race. Like when the tide starts to rush in. Today the family visited Mrs Magic and Ma Magic in Musselburgh. We walked on the beach and had a lovely lunch in the ice cream parlour.  We survived the walk on the beach with only a minor wet shoe for Ry in her new Converse starry boots.

I am even going to miss the cockerel who has been crowing so often that he has sore throat but he still keeps crowing. I keep thinking about Coq-au-van and I have a bottle of red waiting for him....
