weekend tripping

danielle, emily and i have kept in touch with lucas who we met in the lake district in february, and have also met some of his friends, andy, joe and now jack and elliot through subsequent activities we've had since. as lucas and i are going to be playing some songs at mossfest real soon we decided to visit southampton where he lives to practice and play out. it was exactly what i needed.
we arrived friday afternoon and decided to go to bournemouth beach which was wonderful i LOVE bournemouth. the water was perfect and i was so happy to be there. i didn't really bring clothes i could wear to swim in the sea over my swimsuit all i had was my already skin coloured top. i felt extremely self conscious walking around.

lucas promised we could go on the carousel but for some reason thought he'd just be standing and watching. what a stupid thing to think.

the whole weekend busy but relaxing. we went fishing at one point which was a first for me. i don't think i have the patience for it though. i sat with this crabbing kit next to a little girl who had a short pink net and she was reeling them in, every other minute she had a new crab and i sat there pulling up my line over and over always to find no one was interested in the mass of bacon i was using for bait. maybe crabs are like dogs and sense your fear.

i wish people were more up for outdoor activities here in chorley rather than just going out to eat, or to the cinema, or shopping, or staying in and watching films. i think they're all fun now and again but i get so bored of it all the time. i'm glad i had a whole weekend of it ti tide me over, or just maybe leave me dissatisfied.
