Keeping an eye on the weather was key today as we looked to play golf in the afternoon.
We spent the morning around the house as Scotty got some work done. I sat in the garden with a book I have been reading The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking. A book which keeps getting harder to follow the more u read.
Around 12:30 we headed off to the golf club. On arrival you are required to pay a day membership, then pay for any activities on top. The facility as well as the golf course; has a swimming pool, tennis courts, a cricket pitch, & squash courts. I had a look around the pro shop but options were limited. We grabbed lunch in the clubhouse that was tremendous. The chicken in the mixed grill was excellent. After lunch we warmed up on the driving range, & putting green. This did not help us in our game too much, but we would have probably played worse without it. We were joined for the nine holes by James Cross, goalkeeper on Saturday, & PE teacher at Bishop Mckensies. He claimed to be no good & had only joined the golf club two days prior. Yet he was met at his car by his caddie. The caddie loaned me his clubs for a small fee less than the club house would have charged. They were Taylor Made Burners as he played for the Malawian national side. I did not put them to good use except on 3holes managing to make bogey. On the other six holes my usual fault of hitting the ball way left proved my undoing. In the end I finished in last place. Still we grabbed a couple of beers after the 9 before heading home.
The plan for this evening had been to play volleyball at the Shack. The Shack was without power, for its floodlit courts. This meant a change of plan, & Scotty & I headed out for dinner. Cristel had a friend round for 'brinner'. Smoked salmon, cream cheese & bagels, so she was catered for. Our original destination had closed down. Nearby though was Fantasia, a Korean restaurant that delivered some very tasty sweet potato noodles.
