Jack on the Green
Hastings Travel Blog› entry 2 of 3 › view all entries
Well it's bank holiday Monday and for once the sun is shining. The smell of fresh baked bread fills the flat as our friend Claire offers us a cooked breakfast. Today the shop is not open but Micheal and Pete have been busy baking orders for the wholesalers. 300 Baps for one shop so they can sell burgers, etc to the hungry hoards that will desend on Hastings today.
Well after a slow start we head off through the park an into Hasting main town. This whole weekend has been the Jack on the Green festval and it culminates today with a parde through the town. Also there are 100s of motorbikes along the seafront - if you like bikes it is worth a visit.
We saw the parade while standing outside Woolies, one group of morris dancers even thought it would be a great idea to take their dance into the shop, around and back out again.
We walk through the new part of town and into Hastings Old Town. It is very busy, and everyone is happy taking their time, no one is in a rush. We find the shop that had the baps from the bakery and join the queue for some lunch. The choices are bacon, burger or stake in the bap - when we get to the front of the line the burgers had all gone. So it was stake baps all round - very yum. A drink from the pub next door was really nice to help wash the stake down.
A walk back to the shops was needed for a few bits before a quick trip round Morrisons and then back to the shop. I had forgotton that Hastings is hilly and as the walk into town was down hill it would mean up hill all the way home!!!! This would not have been to bad had I not had to push the buggy!!!!
Back at the flat, a snooze is had by all!!! It is then time for us to leave to return to our home.
Another good trip to our friends in St Leonards.
