A return visit to Folkestone, where Erika and I had bunked off to one Friday earlier in the summer, as it was a nice sunny day today, and Erika wanted to go to the beach.
London August 2015
Erika was keen to relive the full experience of our previous visit, including "hamigakiko" (tooth paste) flavoured ice cream - mint choc chip to be precise.
So we effectively had ice cream for breakfast.
Me and Erika paddling in the waves.
I was keen to actually have a swim, but very sensibly Erika didn't want to let me get too far away from her, so instead I sat in the sea and she sat on my lap.
Apologies that you're being subjected to pictures of me shirtless.
I think Chie did a great job at capturing Erika's sheer delight running about at the water's edge here.
Now in the Smokehouse for lunch.
Erika with her fish and chips (far too much for her!).
The girls at lunch.
My halloumi and chips - I ate all of mine!
Back in London now. I'd hoped Erika would have a nap on the train on the way back, but she didn't actually fall asleep until the moment we arrived back at St. Pancras. So on the way back home Chie and I thought we'd go for a cheeky beer at Camden Town Brewery.
