Food is always more enjoyable after a good row. You get a warm feeling of entitlement. So when two boats from Langstone Cutters arrived at the Driftwood Cafe this morning, I ordered the sort of breakfast I am normally strictly verboten. Added savour was provided by the fact that the weather should have kept us indoors. The forecast predicted a series of fronts bringing more rain, but the downpours happened before and after we went out so we beat the weather gods again!
And the morning was fabulous, one of those days of complete calm, with mist over the fields and the trees standing out like black lace on grey silk.
