I went down to Bournemouth for the day today to meet a great group of students at the Library down there. Hi to all of you - thanks for the entertainment.
The only thing that was disappointing about the day was that I didn't see the sea. Bournemouth is on the coast, isn't it? At least, that's how I remember it being when I visited about ten years ago. But today I didn't get a chance to see any sea.
Then I arrive back in Finchley, North London, and there's a restaurant at the top of my road called 'The Harbourside Fish Restaurant'.
HARBOURSIDE?! Which harbour is that, exactly? Is that the same harbour where all these boats are kept?
And as if that wasn't enough, a couple of hundred metres further up the road, a place called '3 Oceans' opens up.
Looks like if I want to see the sea I needn't bother with Bournemouth - it must in be somewhere in Finchley.
