Was 30 degrees at the Cranswick club when I popped in earlier this afternoon.

Thankfully 20 degrees is forecasted for tonight :sun:

Nice pub/restaurant in Scalby, Jill & I stayed there for a weekend a few years ago, posh, pricey but excellent & recommended.
Should be cooler on the coast, you would think... hopefully with a bit of a breeze.

Friends are camping in Pembrokeshire atm, and it's too hot to move. Their kids are ginger too, so they're having to keep them in the shade.

When we were camping in Dorset it was 'only' about 25, and even that was far too hot for being in the tent. Meant you had to be on the go all day.

*When I say 'on the go', I mean sitting in a shady pub garden.

Yes, I'm looking forward to the breeze this evening :-D

Worst holiday for heat I remember was when we were sailing around the Dutch waterways. Not sure what the temperature was but it was too hot to be out in it for long periods which is really difficult when you have to be in an open cockpit to steer the boat. Down below deck in the saloon was like an oven so no real escape there either. We had every hatch open but there was no wind so we ended up with cold soaking wet flannels on our heads....we must have looked like a right proper pair of Charlies!

And then the football info and goss is on hand when you need it... win/ win.
Tbh Sara and don't take this negatively, but you say sooooooooooo much with so few words re footy, one liners that speak volumes.

It's looking better to have all your tittle tattle here, yes win/win,

It's sounding like you're all having some grand weather over there atm, a good washing day as my Gran would say, did you manage to get your smalls done Mrs 64 ?

It's really oppressive if you can't get away from it... at least you had the option of jumping in the canal.

Hottest we had was 44 on Kefalonia one August. Coped with it by riding round the coast road on a scooter, and stopping every few miles to get in the sea.

It's on my list when I retire this year (pretty please) but good to know it's not late.
Oh and learn a new language too. The bars quite high. Intentional leaving out of an A there. Im not using them anymore. Keep Ken busy"

Replying to JD here... what did Clapton know, eh? I don't rate him at all, and I do think he's an example of someone who's playing didn't really develop beyond his original proficiency with blues licks. Always find it funny that the riff he's best known for was played by Duane Allman.

Languages, I wish I could learn, but I lack the aptitude and dedication. I know a couple who teach themselves a new language every year or so, and they're fluent in at least a dozen.

I'm teaching myself ancient astrology, which is ferociously complicated. I reckon it'll take two or three years to get the basics.
Only just seen this.
I’m no guitar expert. I like Mark Knopfler and the Pink Floyd bloke Dave Gilmour. But I say this because I like their music and not from a technical point of view. I’d say Knopfler must be good. Surely.
Languages. I met a Scandinavian chap when I toured Greece for a year in my youth. He spoke 7 or 8. His secret, live with a family who don’t speak English. That’s what he was doing in Greece.
Astrology. I love stars while I’m cracking up at the mad hedgehogs having a bust. 2 large males being cruel to a female last night. You can’t intervene, it’s nature :)

General chat. Great thread btw.
Today I was very unlucky according to a gas man. Very unlucky that whilst repairing a customers front garden fence posts I inadvertently compressed something sharp (that I couldn’t see) onto the pipe below.
Smell of gas + hissing noise = ;mbags: ;mbags:
