COVID STILL TAKEN SERIOUSLY IN THE DIVERS

My Alderney GBG target is an odd little thing, tucked amongst the coloured buildings of Braye Bay.

Remarkably, John Wesley stayed in the Divers in 1787, one of only 3,729 places where Wesley preached.

No 10am opening for the Divers, but at 11:49 I see commotion at the balcony entrance, and hare towards my target (that’s me below).

Beaten by the French tourists to the prime seats.

But who’d sit outside when you’ve got Proper Pub within ?

I congratulate the young barman on opening at all early, he asks about my day, and I contemplate the complex choice.

As us Professional Pubmen know, there are two rules in an unfamiliar environment.

1. NEVER pick the Jubilee beer when there’s Doom Bar available.

2. ALWAYS sit on the table with the chap who looks like he has a story to tell.

Actually, surprisingly taciturn, but at least he gave Pub Curmudgeon the joke of the day;

I called Mrs RM to join me to celebrate with my rather over-carbonated NBSS 2.5 pint of Liberation Jubilee (doh !), but she lay asleep on the sand, cursing the 5am wake-up call.

Well, I’ve had worse mornings.
