Aside

back from a short visit to poole

19 Nov

London

Just came back from poole where I have gone for the last 4days to visit a friend there.
I went by rail, via megabus.com and it was so nice that I am now spoilt. I use to go to him via national express bus but now the train fare is only  £1 and £5 singles and it only takes 2hrs I much prefer going by rail now.

No cheap offers for the Christmas , new year period, of course , but I hope they will resume these cheap offers in the rest of the year and I shall certainly visit poole more often in the summer if they do so .

I went charity shopping while I was there, and found the winton 99p shop sells hot water bottles for 99p and a big 900mg jar of pickled chillies for the same price. How come the London 99p shops don’t have this I wonder? the actual charity shops were rather disappointing though they have a good selection of fleece jackets at about £5 each. 

Now I know where to go if I want to get any more hot water bottles. i bought one, a yellow one to add to the one i bought in london which costs £3. the pickled chillies are a good buy. in chinatown in london they cost more for a much smaller bottle. but then, i better wait till i taste it before i say too much. haha.

(Added.20.11.12 7.30pm i tried them for dinner just now and they are delicious. they still retain their chilli hotness even after being pickled. i would highly recommend them. ) 

I was lucky with the weather. The forecast of rain on Saturday did not materialise and Sunday was just sunny and blue sky which makes our walk along the beach from boscombe to the Bournemouth pier so much more fun. The bus fare was £2.80. Though a friend who joined us later said he got a fare of £2 when he asked the bus driver for the cheapest fare. It was an all day fare that is only valid for the m1 and m2 buses. Rather good value I thought. Trust a local to know of this.

The sand which they have imported from the middle of the channel just a year ago,(they do it every 3yrs and it costs £2-3million, is already getting pebbly shingles and looking grey from the oil which has landed on the sand in the middle of the harbour where it was first dredged. My friend said they did not filter the sand before spreading it. I guess it would have increased the cost even more. Further along nearer the Bournemouth pier the sand is better looking and more abundant. The sand filled up the whole beach right up to the road. Before my friend said they have to jump down from the road to the sand, and the stairs that go down are now buried in sand.
It makes it easier to access the beach from the road, but the downside is that the wind blows the sand onto the road.

We walked inland up the gardens to the Bournemouth square where there was a Christmas market.

One of us found a £2 coin so he gave us a treat of roast walnuts or chestnuts. I thought it rather expensive those chestnuts or whatever they are called.I ate one but was not really very impressed. It was dry. I prefer the Chinese roasted nuts that u can buy in Malaysia. I think they are walnuts. If so they taste better.

My friend said the nuts are from the horse chestnut trees, and u can collect them free now. I asked are these the same trees that gives conkers? He did not know.

But after tasting the roasted nuts I don’t think I want to go collecting any to cook in my oven.

As usual the Chinese do these things better .

There was a whole roast pig being done at one of the stalls, and would have been tempting but we have already ate our packed lunch of tuna pasta which john had made for us. So we were too full . Haha. Which was just as well as it saves us a load of money. Haha.

 

My friend took us on a different route to the beach after we finished with the Christmas market. He took us up to the triangle, and then along the top of the cliffs where we got fabulous views up and down the coast.

Simply marvellous the view , we could see as far as the isle of wight on one side, and the whole sweep of the bay to the other side.

And then we went down to the beach again and walked to middle chime where we climbed back to the poole road and went to visit a friend who lives near there for tea.

Rather a nice day that.

It is a nice change for me, this trip to the seaside. And it was a shagging trip too, as another friend joined us and we have a threesome. I like skimming without coming throughout my stay.

It was a pity that the ferry to studland was not running. My friend says the ferry is taken away for maintainance so we cannot take it to get across to the studland shell beach. Which is the naturist beach.

Ah well, perhaps just as well, as it must be rather cold.

One of the downside to a seaside town in uk, it gets rather bleak in winter.

I guess that is why I like livingImage in London instead.

Nothing like going away from home to realise how nice home is. Haha.

I am sure it must be obvious to evryone that the main reason why i go to poole is to shag. it is what makes life interesting for me. everything else i soon get fed up of, or get bored with; sex is the only thing that provides the newness, the variety, the unexpected  and the surprise , as well as the joy and ecstacy that fulfills every one of my senses.  

life itself is rather the best thing to happen to me or to anyone. just being alive. but between now and death , it would be more interesting if there is more. and sex answers that very well. It is not necessary of course, but it makes life a million times more interesting with it than without.
