Monday, 17 July, 2017 – weather: brilliant
We are going our own ways today as Julie has a hot date – actually a business lunch with an expert on autonomous vehicles. As indicated above the weather is fantastic – circa 28C with little wind, not a cloud in the sky.
Julie goes out first but her lunch is not until 13:00. I decide to out for a bite and a wander around 11:45.
I am heading to the Shambles market area and stop off at this place which is just before the Shambles.
I have tried to make pulled pork a few times at home and it was not particularly appealing – dried, overcooked pork shoulder. This one was quite good, I guess I get it now. I will have to try again once we get home.
I moved out of the Shambles area and decide to have a look around for a while as the weather is so good.
The rest of these are photos I took while having a wander around:
Enough touring for me. I go back to the apartment.
About then Julie arrived at the restaurant – The Star Inn where we had had breakfast yesterday.
The following is the all day menu and the dishes they ordered:
Julie came into the apartment and was really excited about the outcome of the meeting. There may be opportunities in the future.
Then there is a sudden change. She mentions that she has heartburn. Then her skin starts to turn red; hives breakout on her arms. It is clearly an allergic reaction to the seafood. Her windpipe swells up and it is hard to breathe. I did not know what to do, as the headline says I really thought I was going to lose her.
Fortunately, a combination of a good chunder (to clear out the remaining seafood), antihistamine and a 90 minute nap and Julie was like a new girl, no problems at all. Amazing. She even was hungry now. So we decide to go out.
We were told that it would be a 30 minute wait before a table was available. We decide we will wait in the bar area.
The service in general, not necessarily for us, was appalling. Too many customers for the number of waiters (3). I was reluctant to order anything else but once the number of customers had settled down it became ok.
