Ivan and I woke up at 9 am on September 24, 2011. Lil Dave had gone to Monkey World already. Ivan and I was supposed to wake up an hour earlier, so we could head to the Farmer’s market with Denise and Ken. I guess we didn’t hear his parents getting ready to head out.
I used the internet and worked on the blog. Ivan also used the internet.
Denise and Ken were back from the market and shopping at 11:10 am.
Later on, Denise made us a lot of food for dinner.
We had Jewish bagels, salad, egg salad, salmon, cheese and sesame nuggets. It was all very tasty.
Ivan was trying to fix his old computer while I was on the internet.
Denise made tea around 3 pm. I love a good cup of tea in the afternoon.
At 4 pm, Denise drove us to the Southend seafront. I wanted to find a light sweater, so we headed to Primark. I found some good deals including a great sweater, jewelry, tights and a retro purse.
It was a lovely day out, warm and a little breezy. We walked along the seafront. We saw the Adventure Park which has a few rollercoasters. The street has a few amusement arcades with Las Vegas names like Circus Circus and Monte Carlo.
It made me think of home and the Las Vegas Strip. The longest pleasure pier in the world Southend Pier is also in the area. I walked down it with Ivan, Denise and Ken the first time I visited England.
The tide goes out really far in Southend.
Denise said it comes in really fast. We chatted and walked around. It was time to head back.
Ivan fixed the computer. I was using the internet and typing stuff on my laptop.
Ivan, Denise, Ken and I went to The Olive Tree for dinner. It was time to eat some fish and chips. Ivan got the cod while I got the haddock – we both got our fish cooked in matzo meal which is lighter and healthier.
It was a tasty meal, but the fries weren’t that good. I prefer really crunchy fries.
Ken drove us back to the house. Then, we all walked to The Angel Inn. It’s a restaurant and bar. Denise and Ken had sparkling water while Ivan and I drank wine. We tried to chat, but some men were being so noisy.
We stayed for awhile chatting or rather shouting at each other. We walked back to the house.
Ivan and I used the internet before heading off to bed.
