Could well be interested but won't know until later in the week. We may 
be off down the south coast to buy a (kayaking) wetsuit for partner.

Would not a somewhat  later start be better? Sunset won't be until 18:16 
and the moon might be hiding behind the dreaming spires. Given I may not 
be there its a bit of a cheak I know.
