When Dr X abandons me and the weather is good, I ride my bike to work. In our previous home this would involve pedalling down rubbish strewn streets, filled with graffiti and suspicious looking personages loitering on street corners. It was not a pleasant experience. Now that we live nearer to the sea I have the option of completing the first part of my journey along the promenade. The scenery is breathtaking. I have 30 minutes (well 20 if I rode quicker) of sea and sand to enjoy before re-joining the roads. It's a great way to start and end the day. Hope your journey to work is just as nice.
