A Grand Day Out at the seaside!

We had a Grand Day Out on Saturday to good old Skeggie! A coach trip organised by dh's works' Social Club Committee, we've been before about 4 or 5 times and think we've about exhausted all its attractions but we did enjoy the day out, nonetheless.

Here we are having just arrived we sat down for a welcome cup of tea and got our bearings before heading off for the seaside for a walk. We arrived about 10.30am and left at 5pm, weather was mixed including lovely sunshine and rain! mostly grey/warm though.

The lads enjoyed a game of crazy golf which Andrew lead until the last hole whereupon he lost the plot and promptly lost the game to his brother! (who was delighted!). We think they enjoyed it! they didn't protest too much although there was a fair bit of mutterings about it beforehand in particular the early rise of 6.30am! (having said that, there was a lot of mutterings about that from MEE too!).

Had a nice meal while we were out and enjoyed some live music on the front for the last 1.5hrs before catching the coach home which the lads, at least, seemed to enjoy and dh was rather pleased he didn't insist we all returned to the Tower Gardens for the brass band ..

(ps! did you notice my newest bag got its first outing? handles slightly too long and tad wide for complete satisfaction, but dh didn't protest too much at carrying it about, least, not to me!).

Love the shopping bags. If/when you change the length/width of the straps what do you think will work better? How come you and Les didn't join into the golfing fun lol

Thanks Jules! trying hard to look like I wanted to be there!! gggg

A shorter length of strap worked better for me, on the last bag I made it considerably shorter which is more convenient for holding the bags and hoiking out of the trolley/car too!
they absolutely hold LOADS too! I was amazed how much I fitted into my shoppers!
ps dh is getting used to them, slowly!
