Smoked Salmon Sandwiches

Our summer holiday is always far out!

We usually set out early with bucket and spade, park in the shade under the cliffs, eat some breakfast sitting in the van – smoked salmon sandwiches, strips of bacon soaked in maple syrup, strong black coffee. Then we get down and dirty; sand pictures, rock sculptures, walks into the cool caves, or up the gorgeous red sand dunes. Sometimes I just read, slumped in a deck chair. We play French cricket too, or boule, or rounders.

I’m always stoked, spending time with my mates like that; bonding, liberating. The only drag is the spacesuits.
