WOT I DID ON MY DAY OFF BY BEAST
We left , his wailings and gnashings echoeing around an empty Cafe.
Where upon we Rushed to Weymouth and boarded the luxury fast catamaran to all points west
As we speeded away from the motherland , Dolphins and errr cows frollicked in the wake
As the captain chirpily promised , the 3 hour crossing was a little choppy and we all felt a little queasy , but everyone heroically managed to keep the breakfast down.
We arrived in Jersey and sallied forth to the nearest Cafe ,where we had a spirited arguement about what to do with our 4 hours ashore
Altho there was initial dissent it was magically unanimously supported once he threatened to report all of us for attempting to smuggle drugs on the return journey . There is much to be said for the power of prayer.
The Zoo was rather cool.
My particular favourites were
Unfortunatley , there were no dugongs
Eventaully we raced back to the port and boarded the catamaran for the return journey to Weymouth . Once again the captain chirpilly informed us it was going to be a 'lively' crossing , but as I had been necking seasick pills I downed a hearty dinner, chain smoked duty free fags and quaffed a foaming mug of cuppacino in the howling gale on the aft deck for most of the voyage.
Some of our party did not fare so well , Janes digestive tract rebelled about an hour into the crossing as we bounced and rolled past Guernsey
'Worse things happen at sea'
I am afraid poor Jane proved this to be the case :-(
