Different Kinds Of Boats

After recovering slowly with a dose of painkillers BEFORE breakfast, we gathered our belongings together and checked out of the hotel. But we needed to blow off the cobwebs before setting off doing a supersonic 20mph on the motorway’s. Funny (not) how they put the signs up saying 40mph and you’re sat still isn’t it?
So we went for another walk along Paignton sea front, it was still quite warm too. These are the photos I took yesterday and I’ve just realised lovely as it is, everything’s quite teensy considering the size of the bay. Although on the other end of the scale there were some huge tankers lining up in a queue out at sea waiting to go into a port somewhere, (but not this one), so do they have traffic jams and traffic cones out at sea too?

Well, back to real life, we went to visit the newly weds before leaving and said our goodbyes. I won’t bore you with a traffic update of the journey home, just imagine Fridays blog post and add a six car pile up into the mix, fortunately no one was hurt, but the cars were…
Diane rang to say she’d have some chips ready for us when we got back which was very nice because we were starving. Oh and I was on the radio while we were still on the M6! Well my little story was…
The guy on Real Radio was talking about “rip-offs” and asked for other people to text in theirs. His own was the cost of taking his family to the cinema to watch a 3D movie. So I texted about the fact that we were charged £4.86 for a tea and a coffee at the services, (regular not LARGE). I wonder if they put the prices up even more when there’s traffic jam’s? Anyway when he did the TOP 10, mine was second and his own was first, ha ha, fame again…
