Dear Diary.....25th October 2018
After seeing my last sunset on the beautiful island, albeit a cloudy sunset.........
And being the last person to leave the departures hall............
It was time to head home.
As usually its champagne time. What the............only small bottles of prosecco. Who the hell wants a large bottle of champagne? There is no way I'm drinking prosecco as a celebration drink and i couldn't drink a whole bottle of champagne. Me, Kevin Orzabal Cassar Ormerod Wigbert Pinnell the third drinking prosecco, HOW DARE YOU INSULT ME!
Flew back in to Bristol and booked in to Mercure Hotel for 2 nights. Isn't it amazing, only an hour away from Cardiff and I've only been there twice in 50 years. First visit was Bristol Zoo in 1978 and second visit was Bristol Ice Rink in 1982.
So the last time i was there apart from passing through was 36 years ago and i have to say people of Bristol.........Bristol City centre ...........What a Dump!
This I'm sure is no reflection on the people of Bristol but local homeless people around every corner, graffiti on almost every wall, grubby looking and that lovely odour of stale urine almost everywhere. What the hell is going on in Bristol?
Such a shame as the waterfront area is quite nice but that's the only part that is.
Booked in for a special meal on the Monday evening at a restaurant on the waterfront, a fresh Crab and seafood platter.
It was amazing. So much stuff and freshly made in front of us so we could see them prepare every part of the dish and how to dissect a crab.
Our chefs killing and dismembering our huge Crab.
One side of the platter.......Main crab top shell under the green in middle.......
and the other side.
The crab claws were huge.
All together there was oysters, Scottish mussels and langoustines, crevettes, parlourde clams and 2 for 1 cocktails, we have a party folks lol.
Even though it was soooooo good I'm not the most tidy of eaters. Lets just say my side of the table looked like i had gone at it with a chainsaw not a crab fork.
It was a nice change for both of us but wouldn't fly back in to Bristol again. Fly from there yes as I'm leaving it behind lol.
Anyway, Nice weekend ahead now I'm back in Cardiff with cinema, ice hockey, a meal and afternoons in the pub. Great to be Home.
Serve All, Love All, Peace All, Kevlar Out!
