We've often thought that xmas away might be fun so we checked out a venue or two. More on that later.
The programme will be shown in January just when everyone has forgotten about it...but I'll remind you.
We drove on then to Skegness. I have not given Skeggie bold letters. It does not deserve them. The camp site was OK but no-one cleans the toilet block in the afternoon and the flooded floor was left all night. We went down to the front to eat and were dismayed. Eventually we settled in "Williams" away from the front. DJ's curry was just like all the other kormas you get. His small side serve of chips was £2.50 and grossly overpriced. My pasta with pancetta and scallops was a disaster. There was no sauce on the pasta and the scallops and pancetta were cold and raw. A girl took it away and said she would tell the chef. I don't believe there is a chef in these places. It's the same girl who takes the order who reads the instructions, who then presses the buttons, waits for the "ding" and arranges it on a plate. She must have missed out a step or two.
We left early and went to East Kirkby to the Aviation Museum. Their highlight is a Lancaster Bomber which moves under its own power. It takes people for rides up and down the runway. Mostly old blokes with a fetish for old planes. Their wives sometimes come too but they sit on the picnic tables and have coffee and watch. The rides cost a lot of money and only last 20 minutes but even so, are booked up for this year so DJ can't get a ride on it till next May!
