After a while, Clive began to get thirsty and a little peckish and so decided to head to the nearest beach café in search of something to satiate his needs. Leaving his towel on the chair as a token of his reservation, he headed off in search of food and drink. Clive returned some time later looking smug. He had a 99 flake in one hand and a carton of Ribena in the other, he was really beginning to enjoy his holiday.
