Due to time constraints, (45 hrs) we were taken back to the coast for part two of our trip out; to see some white cliffs, which were a famous attraction in this part of the country.
We had to go the short way round (45 hrs) so we didn’t get to see the full panorama of them although Mr Grumpy did point them out to us in the distance.
Up we drove and were given 45 minutes to walk along the cliff edge to see the sights below.
(Irreverent thought number 7. Is this number mystical or something as it keeps cropping up time and time again?
Again our fellow passengers suffered. They were left either sitting in the coach eating ice creams or sitting in the pub car park a short walk away.
As for us well the views from the cliff were absolutely lovely with the sun glistening on the turquoise waters. We managed to walk along for quite a way and saw the famous lighthouse as well. But the terrain was difficult to access and out of eleven passengers only my lovely husband and I saw anything worthwhile.
We did offer to show our photographs (at a slight fee of course LOL) to our fellow travellers as we left to return to the hotel. We had to be back by 12.30 so that Mr Grumpy could make a start on his 45 hours!
On reflection this was a wasted morning for most of the passengers. It would have been so much better if they had missed out the village and instead drove along the coast so that they could have seen the white cliffs, and lighthouse from the comfort of the coach. People who plan these day trips should really try them out and know more about their clientele ‘s capabilities.
However, returning earlier than expected did allow us all to spend the rest of the sunny day at the seaside, which was enjoyable.
As for Mr Grumpy; he has tomorrow off and will have made some inroads into making up his 45 hours. He is also moving to the Brighton hotel as well. Let’s hope he has a room with a sea breeze on the ground floor.
I doubt it – don’t you?
Thought for the day: Make the most of your day.
