Hi gang, went to Walton-on-the-Naze with my sheltered scheme yesterday.
I had worked out a little plan that worked well. There’s a scooter hire shop in Walton so I booked a small 4-wheeler.
Last year I took my scooter and it was damaged by coach driver piling wheelchairs on top of it in boot… so this year I took wheelchair and our manager then wheeled me to scooter shop. I left wheelchair in shop and spent day on scooter! Good plan eh?
Had lovely time. Fish and chips, a ride down the surprising long pier (Walton is very small town) and of course and icecream!
Unfortunately driver got lost on way back… he had put wrong postcode in sat-nav… and what should have taken about an hour and half took 3 hours.
I seem very jinxed on travelling recently!!! (was involved in car breakdown only 2 weeks ago).
Anyway a good day was had by all… and it’s worth keeping that wheelchair / rent scooter plan in mind!
Love to all and hope you’re all ok. VERY grey and warm in London!!! (was lovely at seaside though… not too hot and nice breeze).
