A Barbeque at Sean's, Walkford, Dorset - 28th July 2018

Phil and his posse are over from the States for a few days, and so we arrange to meet up with Hamish at Sean's gaff for a catch up and a barbeque. We end up staying at the rather swanky Elmer's Court Hotel in Lymington, an almost Harry Potter-esque place where we have a whole apartment complete with a 1980s games table with draughts and chess and everything. OK, so there's a morning fire alarm in the rain, but there's also a nice indoor swimming pool and they even chuck in a free breakfast thanks to a mix-up about our room. Mind you, that's just as well as at £17 a head, we were otherwise just going to eat toast in our apartment kitchen. But first, there's a Thursday bike ride out to the Crown at Pulham Market.
