Beach mooch

.
after a hard day at work, a trip to the beach* is required...

after a quick drink at the pub, we hopped off the bus and got our feet on the crispy sand of our local beach.

I can confirm that no dead bodies or diamond rings were found.

much to my disappointment. I was looking forward to being asked questions by a real life forensic pathologist. Oh well, next time maybe.{I did find some rather human like thigh bones though}.

some tourists tried to pronounce our names from the walkway above, ...quite amusing.

 Nao spotted a couple canoodling on the jetty, it was a very romanchicoo evening I must say!

after that, we walked to another pub. It was great, but our one starter cost the same as two mains back in ol'Peckhamshire.

and that was the end of a rather nice day, just exploring what we go past everyday on the bus!

* or course, if you didn't work it out, this is the banks of the river Thames, just next to Blackfriars bridge.

Nao is looking stylish as always. I like his leather bag and his cardi.

Parisians would die for a real beach on their river. Glad you made such great use of it. xxxx

I've always wondered how to pronounce Nao's name! Could you explain? I never know how to say it in my head when I'm reading your lovely posts! x

There is nothing I enjoy more than a walk on teh beach after a hard day, and how fantastic that you have a beach in London!

Quite please you didn't find any dead bodies, gutting that you didn't find any Diamond rings though!

Loving your blog xx

Thank you all for your lovely comments! :)

Sarah B, you pronounce it exactly like 'Now'.

Imagine me in the supermarket, calling his name trying to attract the attention of the husbando. I have half the supermarket looking round at me like i am a some kind of demanding nutter! If only he had a normal name like me ;)

*or course 'Nao' is THE most normal name in Japan!

Sarah B said...

Oh this made me laugh out loud! Such a nice name, although I was pronouncing it 'Nay-oh' in my head, so I was totally wrong! Thanks for explaining - I've been wanting to ask for a while, just needed an excuse :) x

I had guessed correctly how to pronounce it - but it hadn't occurred to me before how funny it must be when you're calling him hahahahaha
