Hamish's 21st and Christmas, New Milton and Bransgore - 25th December 1987

It's Hamish's 21st Birthday, which is held at La Dolca Vita Italian restaurant in New Milton. It's Hamish's first time tackling shell-on prawns, the process of which has to be explained (including what the mystery bowls of warm water are for). A few days later, it's Christmas day - firstly with a visit to Brian and Judith in Barton-on-Sea, followed by Christmas dinner at The Willows in Bransgore.
