Yesterday we took our friends to McKenzy beach. Not that it's really warm enough to swim yet, but one of them wanted to get his feet wet in the sea. Then we lay on beach towels and chatted about mutual friends and acquaintances, life, the universe and everything. It was peaceful, and the beach almost deserted. In a few months it will be teeming with tourists but even though this is a bank holiday weekend in the UK, there don't seem to be many visitors.
