With much excitement last weekend, I got to catch up with Charlotte, possibly my oldest friend – who moved over to America when we were about eight. It had been a few years since we’d seen each other, and this was the first time that she’d met Stuart! She was staying in Hastings, so we took the opportunity for a good catch up and a traditional Hastings trip to the beach!
With a paddle in the sea, plenty of ice cream, pirate golf, playing on the penny machines and, of course, some selfies – we had a lot of fun! The pirate golf, especially, was great, with pirate sound effects, cannon blasts and water shooting at you every now and then, it certainly kept us on our toes! (If you’re wondering, Char the sports journalist won, I came second, and Stuart gracefully lost). Maybe this is the start of an exciting new form of sport reporting. What will be next? Ninja Frisbee? Mermaid darts?
After that had all worn us out, we returned to my mum and dad’s for a roast dinner, some card games and giant Jenga in the garden (while I, actually, had a short nap…). I think Stuart lost the Jenga, too.
