As often happens people drive off the road and get stuck in the beach. A costly mistake unless one is in one of the motoring organisations.
Last evening a French family in their motor home got stuck up to the axles. Dint speak much English and no French on my part. After trying a few local businesses with tow trucks – all closed – asked neighbouring fisherman Kenny Thomas if anyone on the beach could help. Turned out his brother has a tractor for their fishing business and within half an hour or so they had gone to the aid of the stranded family. I had asked Kenny how much he would charge – something the family wanted to know – and he replied ‘we don’t normally make a charge (although donations to the Lifeboat always appreciated)’
In this day and age how refreshing to find others willing to help – and instantly – despite being early evening when probably other things to do.
And others can reward him buy purchasing fresh fish from his ‘Snack Shack’ on the main road!
