It was 7 am, and we were on a surfingholiday. He continued, “lets get down to the BEACH BOYS, there’s a good surf running”. Wequickly got dressed and headed down the STEPS to the SANDIE SHAW, we were alone apart from aFLOCK OF SEAGULLSWe soon spotted a group of local lads playing volleyball, WHO were all art lovers, they were knownas the CULTIRE CLUB, this part of the beach was for men only and was known as the BOYZONE.As soon as we joined them the tide rose quickly and we got WET, WET, WETDick was the first to get hungry and wanted some breakfast, but rather than use the path back to thetop he decided to climb the rock face. George, the youngest of us shouted “Don’t climb the CLIFFRICHARD, some ROLLING STONES may fall down and hurt you”. Dick took no notice of theBOY GEORGE, He had not gone too far when he slipped. Luckily he was not hurt, the few scratcheswere covered with a BAND AID.
Back in the van we heated up some BATCHELORS cup-a-soup. George turned on the radio, it wasplaying a song by Ella Fitzgerald. Fred told him to find another channel, “You know JOHNNYHATES JAZZ” he said. We were nearing the end of our week and would soon be heading home, themoney was running short and if we were not careful we could find ourselves in DIRE STRAITS .We decided to go to ABBA for a beer, The landladys name was Elizabeth. She was tall and slim, thelads called her THIN LIZZIE Dick greeted her as he always did with a big SQUEEZE. At thatmoment the pub DOORS swung open and a couple of DRIFTERS walked in. By the looks of themthey had been on the road a long time. They were hungry and asked Elizabeth if she could spare someBREAD and JAM. She obliged but only one slice which they had to CHER. They said thank you andleft.Dicks love was a fair haired girl named BLONDIE, he was MADONNA and would do anything forher. She wore BANGLES on her wrist, and her jeans were a TIGHT FIT. Her favourite colours weredark red or DEEP PURPLE. She was a SWEET little thing, and by her accent came from AMERICA,which is a very BIG COUNTRY indeed. Her home town was the windy city of CHICAGOListening to the weather forecast, the HEATWAVE would soon be over and the weather would becolder and wetter. Next day we drove away from the coast and started the long journey back up northto home. After a couple of hours we turned a corner and were stopped by the POLICE A youngconstable said we would have to find another way round as there was some MEN AT WORK on theroad ahead and there was no way through.It was Dicks turn for driving, and as he tried to turn round he went off the road, we got stuck and theold VW was soon up to its axles in MUD We eventually got going with the help of some VILLAGEPEOPLE. who included a traffic cop and amazingly a Red Indian Chief! They gave us a friendlywave as we departed and someone shouted to us “stay in THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD next time!”We got on our way north again, and soon left the BEAUTIFUL SOUTH behind us. We decided tospend one more night out on the road, And after a cup of HOT CHOCOLATE we went to sleep. Justbefore DAWN I woke up and I could see some SHADOWS moving around, I quickly grabbed atorch and looked through the window. I yelled in terror when I saw a crowd of SMALL FACESstaring back at me. The others jumped up and we all dashed outside to see 20 or so STRAY CATSwandering around our van.After being woken so early we set of in the direction of home. This holiday had gone past so quick, itall seemed a BLUR but all being well, we would have MIKE AND THE MECHANICS check thebattered VW ready for next year.We were all wondering what TEMPTATIONS we would have if we manage to get away next year. Inthe meantime I would go back to the building sites and keep digging FOUNDATIONS for buildings.As we left each other we arranged to meet in our local pub and have a few pints and a game ofDARTS on Monday evening.
