A day out in Clumber park

We met some good friends today at Clumber Park and had a nice walk along the lake.

It wasn’t as warm as we would have liked it to be, but the sun shone most of the time, and as long as we kept moving, we were fine.

One of the hardest things to do was to coordinate the meeting as there is an almost total lack of network signal.

As we were coming from Eckington, and they were driving up from Nottingham, we all arrived at different times and tried desperately to message each other from the car park until we finally managed to hook up near the restaurant.

I spied some kid’s sandwiches, so asked for some adult ones, only to be told that they wouldn’t be serving them before midday. It was only 11:34 am. It seems to be a recurrent feature of my visits to public gardens and last time I lost my cool somewhat. Today I took it in my stride and just ordered a few bacon butties.

I feel completely guiltless, I had no choice!

We are so lucky to have such good friends and we really enjoy their company. It’s a pity they live over an hours drive from us, but we’ll surely see them soon for more adventures.

Looking forward to that!
