After the false start of yesterday I set off from home this morning feeling a little less than confident. Would they or wouldn’t they, Estel’s Dine By the Sea that is, be open for breakfast.
I arrived in ‘Town at exactly 06.45 hours – I know that they open at 06.00 hours but I didn’t want to appear too eager, too needy. I parked and then padlocked the ‘cart, grabbed my bag and strode purposefully (and optimistically ) towards Estel’s looking for a sign of ‘life’. Any sign.
And then I saw. The door was open AND the shutters had been removed from the bar, the NEW bar that is. There was Mark and Sam and I could hear noise coming from the kitchen. Only one thing to do. Take my place at MY table . It’s not really my table- table 11 that is- but I like to think of it that way. And you know what? I was the first person to eat there after the re-opening. A commerative T shirt occasion?
The view hasn’t changed. It’s still beautiful.
It hasn’t changed. It’s still great!
So what has changed?
Well for a start there’s the bar.
What about the inside?
Well the chalkboard is still there!
And the honour went to Lesley ” Shaggy” Lisbey.
Charlie in his corner.
Busy making sure the entrance was nice and clean.
Happy, very happy.
Estel’s has been closed for what has seemed like forever (OK I’m exaggerating a bit) but as far as I’m concerned it was worth it. I love the new look Estel’s. Well done to Charles and the rest of the ‘E Team’
