We ate supper last night at Hix's Oyster and Fish House, overlooking the cobb and harbour at Lime Regis. We had the most delicious meal - smoked salmon and soda bread to start, also with deep fried sand eels and deep fried scrumpy oysters, served in their shells. Fish pie and herb salad to follow for me; M had beautifully cooked gunard with cockles, with chips on the side. To finish, a scoop of frozen yoghurt ice cream with a wafer tuile and coffees. We watched the sky turn from grey and blustery to a beautiful shade of deep blue, a cardinal buoy bravely flashing six flashes and a longer flash at the entrance to the harbour in the increasing winds as the waves crashed over the breaker wall.
Yesterday, we spent the morning at Brighton Pier, for a few minutes playing the 2 penny slot machines before driving the coast road west.
Today, we head to the River Cottage Canteen for lunch and then onwards, south-west, through Devon to Cornwall.
