On the Costa Delirium

We've had a lot of warm, dry weather lately, which is nice for those pesky tourists (the perils of living in a seaside town), but not hugely beneficial for my garden. Occasionally, though, we like to go out and enjoy ourselves about the town - just like those pesky tourists.
On the day in question, we decided to stop at a cafe and have a drink. Unfortunately, it was pretty much packed inside and those few tables that remained all seemed to have screaming toddlers or hyperactive youngsters next to them, so we decided to sit at one of the tables outside. Luckily, it was one of the warm days, so the only trouble we had to keep an eye out for was an aggressive smoker or two.

And then Julie came out with the following remark on the weather.

I suppose it's some consolation that she didn't come up with 'Costa Del Boy' (from UK sitcom Only Fools And Horses) instead of a reference to a drinks label and a ham-fisted attempt at 'Costa Rica'...
