Saturday, 7 July, 2.30pm. Mudeford, on the Dorset Coast, near Christchurch. Height of Summer.
The walk down the beach to Highcliffe Castle was strangely enjoyable though. A bracing wind and a fine sea mist. The kids stayed indoors!
These beach huts are usually thronging with families and their picnics. Not today.
Got better on Sunday.
