We are at our last sit for this year in Hastings, England, We are taking care of two sweet kitty cats, Clara and Fin.
They are very sweet and sleep a lot of the day.
Hastings is a seaside resort town of the southeast part of England. It is where the Battle of Hastings took place in 1066 and William the Conqueror invaded England. It is a lovely place to stay. The boats on the beach are launched by tractor from the beach into the sea.
The most remarkable thing happened two nights ago when we were walking on the beach. People were fishing from the shore. I have seen many people fish from the shore all over the world and most people do not catch a fish or if they do it is one or two. The fishermen and women were throwing in their lines with 6 hooks on one line and reeling in six fish each time.
The fish were mackerels that were running the last two days. One fisherman told me that he was going home to smoke them and eat them for dinner. It was like something out of the Bible when Jesus told Peter to put his net in the water and all the fish jumped in.
The next day we had fish and chips ( cod this time) at a famous restaurant on the beach called Maggie’s. It was delicious.
The fishermen throw away the fish they cannot use and the sea gulls are patiently waiting for their fresh fish dinner.
It was cloudy and rainy today and so we stayed home with the kitties most of the day. But David did get to say hello to the sea gulls this evening.
