Family day at Frinton
Church News | Saturday, 17 June 2017 |
We had a really lovely family day out to Frinton-on-Sea on Saturday. We each made our own way down and eventually about 16 of us met and gathered outside Trudy’s beach hut to enjoy each other’s company and the beautiful weather. We were fortunate enough to be taken down by car but even so, the journey was pleasant with just a couple of minor holdups. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, dare I say perfect, when only the evening before the TV weather forecaster advised us, that if we wanted to get away from the humid and very hot weather inland tomorrow (Saturday) we should head for the coast and go for a paddle. And that’s exactly what some of us did.
Trudy was the perfect host and welcomed us with cups of tea, coffee and biscuits, even making sure we had enough shade from the sun, thank you Trudy! It was lovely to see the youngsters playing in the sand and paddling in the sea. At lunchtime, some of us bought sandwiches, etc., and some of us rumbled around in our bags looking for our picnic however once again, Trudy looked after us by handing round lots of yummy sandwiches and snacks. Later, I offered to buy everyone a much-needed ice cream and because Paul Hardy had gone into the town, Julie rang and asked him to buy a stack of ice creams which he hurriedly brought down to us before they all turned into a runny mess. Needless to say, my offer to pay for the ice creams was rejected so we have to say thank you to Paul for helping us keep cool for a little while.
We left around three-thirty and had another pleasant journey home thanks to Revd Carolyn and we arrived home feeling very glad that we had spent a day at Frinton. Thank you to Revd Julie, Revd Carolyn, Trudy and everyone else who helped make it such a lovely day out…
