Sallie and I went to Barry Island yesterday and took our journals with us. She had already taken hers for a walk, so I tied string round the spine of mine and embarassed her by dragging my book along behind me. It had started to rain so it got a bit wet and manky. The corner that Lewis had turned up has been worn away completely now.I walked along and crossed the road, banging the book up and down the kerb.To prove that I had done this in public we waited for some others to pass by. Even the dog ignored us!
