It was The Renovator’s turn as Mein Host this week; the blue cheese scones went down a treat and Coolio’s words were declared ‘bang-on’ by all attending.
So much so, in fact, that when a quick consultation with Mr Google revealed low tide was imminent, a seize-the-moment stroll in the briny breeze was proposed. It is a firmly held Homestead belief the best beach to walk on is found in the two hours either side of low tide. A beach needs to be wide enough to accommodate every Homesteader’s idea of fun.
Some of us walk down the dunes and onto the pitch at Anfield/Stamford Bridge/Camp Nou, others are centre stage at Woodstock circa 1969 and we currently have one whose gymnastic aspirations could never be contained by your average gymnasium (thanks Simone Biles). Then there’s those who just want to amble, shoes off and trousers rolled, chewing the fat or lost in thought, but sure in the knowledge they will not be swept up in the soccer/crowd surfing/ribbon twirling of other’s idea of fun. Sadly, this time no one’s idea of fun was taking a photo but “here’s one we prepared earlier”, as they say on all the best cooking shows; an example of our idea of the best sort of beach.
Ideas on what fun is differ greatly but there are some things we all agree on: wide beaches rock, and a walk is not a walk unless it culminates at a cafe. This time it was newly opened Hector’s in Brighton who cared not a jot that we came in clutching a hastily dusted off soccer ball.
To finish up and to make up for the lack of personalised photography, here’s a quick glimpse of some four-legged Homesteader’s idea of fun
which just goes to show that fun comes in all shapes and sizes.

Blue cheese scones sound delicious and the quote admirable.
They were totally decadent and very morish 😊
Time at the beach!!! I am a little jealous…but very happy you all had such fun times!
It’s shaming that, though we live a block from the ocean, weeks can pass between beach walks…we must fix this 😊
Great pics. Wonderful sounding scones. A spontaneous walk on the beach at low tide. A goat with lipstick! Your life is blessed, indeed!
All in good fun 😊
Good quote, good fun and good food. A fine day all round.
I love spontaneous trips to the beach or walks anywhere in fact. That’s my idea of fun. Your local beach is a beauty!
We love having it so close but sometimes life gets in the way and we can go weeksu without visiting it although it’s always present in the soundscape and the briney breeze 😊
I understand this so well. We are less than half an hour’s drive away from the sea and don’t go there for months at a time.
Hi, How did the goat react to being made up to look like a princess? My idea of fun? Being at Miss Evie’s Monster Tap Show performed at Guildford Public Hall.
A monster tap show? Wonderful!
