If you're going to have a mate, have a best mate. If you're going to have a cake, have the best cake - or at least the biggest. If you're going down to the beach, then you might as well go down to one of the best beaches on Anglesey.

Friday July 6 2018 - about mid-afternoon the sun came out and after a walk and a bit of reminiscing on Sandy Beach with Madame X we set off for Church Bay, which was the day's prime objective. Well, the main objective was one of the famous Wavecrest Café Cream Teas.

The sun was out and the sea was blue and the big sky was blue and we were anything but blue. The Wavecrest Café was rocking with busy-ness and banter. I haven't been here for ages and it is lost opportunity that I will never have back.

The tea was glorious, the breeze was glorious and the cream scone was unbelievably good. It was temporary perfection in an imperfect world, when cakes, tea, friend, weather and mood conflate - no balloons required.

The staff of the Wavecrest Café are the jolliest and amusing busiest people I've met in a fair while.

Then it was a quick walk down to the Church Bay beach where Madame X went for a paddle and met a dog who loved water but hated swimming. We then went along the cliffs coastal path to the north and found a rocky headland and sat down to ponder, prognosticate and view my head turn red.

Back down on the beach, I was dared to go on for a swim. Underpants it was and Madame X was silent when I asked if my returning from the sea reminded her of Daniel Craig coming our of the sea in the James Bond film.

A superb day.

Best wishes
