I had the day off today so I could join my Mum with her art class friends on Sheppey. I had a lovely day. We didn't spend that long doing art as it started to rain, so we went to a cafe and then to a pub for lunch. I had a little walk with Mum back along the beach, then we went round to her friend Pat's house for coffee before heading home. After yesterday's extremely high temperatures today was a relief as it was cooler and a little overcast. Not that cool- but cooler.We were in Minster, a part of the island I don't really know. I want to go back there soon. Mum said she used to come here as a school girl with her art class to paint the cliffs. The pub we went to was called 'The Playa' and used to be 'The Playa Club', a private drinking club where my Nan used to go. It was a pub really but you had to be a member. It did good food-the best food I have had in a pub recently-the last two pub meals had issues!
