When I went to bed last night I told myself that I was going to get up early this morning and go for a run along the coast. That's exactly what I ended up doing. I got up, ate and then changed into my running gear and took off for Watergate Bay. The run to Watergate Bay is about 4 miles one way along some really nice coastline.
After the run, I got back and quickly rinsed off and then a group of us headed to Cafe Irie where we got some Canadian Breakfasts. Their version is a bunch of thick crispy bacon wrapped in a big crepe all covered with maple syrup. It was an extremely delicious lunch.
Once I got back to the hostel I answered a few emails and then people started talking about heading down to the beach for the afternoon. I changed into my running/swimsuit and 5 of us went down to the beach. We relaxed for a bit then got in the frigid water for a while. After drying off we kicked around a soccer ball for a bit then laid out in the sun some more.
I wanted a proper shower so I came back to the hostel and took care of that. We all hung out watching TV for a while before everyone started making dinner. I still had some curry sauce left and I had bought some basmati rice last night so I cut up a red pepper, an onion and some garlic and then combined it all together for a delicious dinner.
We were originally going to head out tonight since it's Curt's last night here but everyone was in recovery mode from last night so we just ended up hanging out in the dining room/lounge area watching TV and having a few drinks.
You can buy cider at the store in 2 liter bottles for pretty cheap (£3.49 for the bottle). I bought one earlier in the day and had a couple glasses. I got a little hungry later and made another one of my crunchy peanut butter, nutella and jelly sandwiches to keep me from being hungry all night.
Tomorrow afternoon is supposed to be nice so I'll probably go exploring some of the southern coastline. I also need to start figuring out where I'm heading after this. I have my hostel room booked until Monday, so I'm debating whether staying here a little longer or trying to go somewhere else in England. Due to visa limitations I'm not going to enter mainland Europe until mid September so I've still got a little time to kill here.
