Some Retail Therapy

Wednesday, 21 June 2017

View 2017 UK & Artic Cruise on greynomadm's travel map.

With another scorcher forecast we got out on the street as early as possible. Visited the Information Centre and received confirmation that a day-trip to Dover should be possible provided the predicted cool change arrives. Looks like Friday will be the day.

We're now quite familiar with the layout of the inner city and can confidently walk to most of the significant places directly. Dropped into the Pound World store to stock up on some sweet treats.

Took our purchases back to the hotel and then decided to visit the Mountain Warehouse store. It doesn't look like much from the outside but has great depth and is loaded with outdoor gear. I located a pair of great hiking boots and Jenny found some comfortable sandals. Bought their stuff on-line before and it was great to see the stock physically. Took the purchases back to the hotel. I'm certainly clocking up some FitBit paces today.
Back to the main street to find a number of market stalls erected and crowded with people. I wonder where they all come from. Jenny spotted some light-weight pants that were the right size and a reasonable price. Stocked up with some fruit and two combo meals for lunch. Once again we returned to the hotel where we adopted the horizontal position again to hibernate through the heat of the day

Internet connection has been flaky, no doubt due to the heat. The heat was responsible for closed rail-lines when the the track buckled yesterday. Got ready to hit the road about 19:00 and walked to an Italian Restaurant out on Castle Street. The busiest venue we've experienced. The dishes were excellent and the service both friendly and efficient.

Called into Tesco for some Pepsi and an ice-cream. The sun was still bright when we returned to the hotel. We kept the curtains closed for now. The sun went down behind the rooftops at about 20:30 so we opened the windows and the curtains. Will try to upload this lot if the Internet gods approve.

More tomorrow if we can find the energy 8-).

Until next time. Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
