Picture me in my chosen outfit on what was another warm, blue sky day in which the temperature rose above 80 on the Fahrenheit scale. Authentic grey FDNY T-shirt, khaki shorts, black socks and well-worn walking boots. To enhance my appearance I slapped some Nivea suncream on exposed skin.
We parked in Stickney before undertaking a four mile round walk over the surrounding flat agricultural landscape. Then we had a simple lunch at Stickney Bakery. We read our books for a while in what was once an old railway yard - now a shady picnic ground. Then we drove to a charming little town called Spilsby on the eastern edge of The Lincolnshire Wolds. In a charity shop, I bought an extra T-shirt and Shirley acquired two crystal wine glasses. Afterwards we drank bitter shandy and lager at "The Red Lion" in the market place.
Back home at Curlew Cottage, it wasn't long before Clint carried me to the village of Butterwick to purchase fish and chips for our evening meal. The proprietor piled so many homemade chips (American: fries) onto our order that we could have fed a family of six with them!
And that was Tuesday September 15th, 2020. A good day. How was your Tuesday?
