Before Darrell and Nigel’s long journey home Andy took them to The Heights Hotel in Portland where he and mum had spent serveral very happy and great holidays (before we were around!) The view of Chesil Beach (one of Andy and Mum’s VERY favourite places in the whole wide world) was truly stunning……
Naturally Darrell and Nigel took advantage of a Hello Magazine type photo shoot in front of such a wonderful vista …..
….. and though they embraced the moment with all their usual vim and vigour, they now wish they had just embraced it all for little bit longer and appreciated the moment for just a little bit more, knowing the great sadness that was to come just a few days later.
They went into the restaurant for a slap up morning coffee …… where Andy (foolishly) said that they could have ANYTHING on the menu!!!
Darrell plumped for the Dorset Apple Cake, without clotted cream as he had started to worry about his waistline after a weekend of wanton ice cream and fish and chip type indulgence!
Nigel on the other hand couldn’t decided between the Tea For One or the Tea for Two. In the end Andy pointed out that the Tea for One should be both ample and sufficient for him, adding, quite firmly, that he wouldn’t take too kindly to having to pull over on the way home so that Nigel could “avail himself of some fresh air” …….
Andy’s cake of choice was a Blueberry Muffin, which he had also partaken in in every coffee shop and cafe they had visited during the weekend, noting that they all came from the same bakery! What was he like??
And as you will see from the picture Andy’s beloved Tic Tacs were never far away from him ……It was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend, warm sunshine, a beautiful view and cakes akimbo ….. a weekend that will NEVER EVER be forgotten by any of us.http://www.heightshotel.com/index.htm
