A few people were sitting about; some chatting, a couple reading, someone else taking time to have a coffee and bite to eat that they'd obviously purchased up on the main street. A grandparent bought a little toddler along to run about and explore, and others had come down the stairs to look at this special place for the first time, like I had; cameras to the fore. Oh, and I nearly left out that there was a middle-aged male, enjoying his chosen spot on one of the deck chairs. A brown paper bag was propped beside him, which he occasionally lifted to his mouth ... no doubt bottled water.
