I walked into town this morning in search of BBQ supplies. I had to pick my way through the castle ground because there was a Volkswagen convention going on and the place was full of VW camper vans, cars that were so old they looked more like tanks, portaloos and tents every where I looked! I think tomorrow’s walk will go somewhere else, as I feel a bit inhibited walking around, looking around when surrounded by people essentially living in the grounds for a couple of days!
In the evening I barbecued as you’ve probably already gathered. I had a plank for cooking some fish, which had been soaking all day long in the sink yet still insisted on bursting into flames (though still produced some delicious fish!) so it was kind of stressful and involved lots of splashing water on flames then cursing the ash thrown up! The end result was much better than it probably should have been! And I cooked up some extras again so they’ll go into the freezer for another time.
