Old man in Chinatown (London)

Unfortunately there is a very strong wind blowing, so even in the sunshine it's cold ! After breakfast I found a bench at the seafront just opposite from my hotel sat down and watched the sea and the seagulls !
The waves were quite high. The part of the pier which had burnt down last year when I was here, has not yet been totally reconstructed, despite the promises of the government. It seems to be everywhere the same, a lot of promises are quickly forgotten. Politicians have a short memory.
Then I walked along the beach into the city center. I looked at some shops, but there was nothing interesting and I was surprised how much the prices had increased !
I took the bus to meet two of Anne's friends and then we drove to the habor where we should meet the others for lunch.
Last year we could sit outside and even did a little boat tour around the harbor, but this was impossible because of the wind. So we sat inside a pub and had our lunch. We had such a fun, and behaved like silly little and very noisy girls. We talked about Anne and the funniest memories we had of her and stayed there for almost 3 h ! Then we said good bye til the next year and two of them took me back to my hotel. I invited them for a cup of tea and they liked my hotel very much and also my room.
It had been a very nice afternoon. When they were gone I returned to the seafront, the sun had come out again and I walked to a stand selling sandwiches. I bought one and returned and ate my sandwich later in my room. I could have eaten supper in the hotel but I was still so full from lunch.
