And by Brits I do mean all of us
Earlier this week I commented on the British habit of going to a beauty spot, parking up in the car and then not actually bothering to leave the car park.
At the time I wrote it at the back of my mind was a little voice going “Isn’t it more an English trait rather than a British trait”
Well, having been for a beautiful walk along the seafront at Ayr, southern Scotland, with the warmth of a strong late spring sun shining down I can confidently say the habit extends to the Scots too.
All along the seafront were cars parked up with people sitting in the front seats staring out to the sea.
It’s beautifully warm outside, there is a lovely gentle breeze, the sand is enticing, but no, we’ll sit in the car thank you very much!
