We’d driven several long uncomfortable miles to the huge (but somewhat crowded) beach, so it was a relief to finally end our journey.
However, my mother-in-law was not happy. There appeared to be something wrong with her towel. It took some time to understand that she was really trying to communicate that the trip had taken its toll.
Meanwhile I was annoyed that my father-in-law chose curry for dinner that evening. This came after curry for breakfast and curry for lunch.
