Yesterday we had a visit from one of R's nicest men, Shawathan.
My gosh, I went outside to meet him when he pulled up and this tall handsome man got out of the car and gave me a grin that would likely melt snowcaps, lol!
We sat in the backyard enjoying Bill's forte, his gardens, and got to know each other a little better. Good gosh, you young men of today are brilliant. Sorry for the happy generalization, but we feel it's true.
We took him down to the beach and had fish & chips as the sun blazed its way down the sky, making the bay a sea of glittering light.
It would have been great to take him on the promenade and onto the pier, but Bill's leg!
Poor Bill, his torn calf muscle is healing very slowly so he can only walk short distances. This is what also made the evening so special. There's nothing like a visit from a new friend, especially such a kind and gregarious one to lift you up a little when you have cabin fever.
Thanks again Shawnathan, that was blast and next time we'll visit you.
