A WALKER drowned his sorrows when his beloved hat flew out to sea — only to get it back hours later.
Richard Beer, 74, went for a pint after his battered Panama floated away — while his wife Linda was thrilled as she hated it.
Richard ha detto: “It’s a bit tatty and not exactly a prime piece of sartorial wear. It’s just a straw hat, but I love it.”
He thought it had gone forever when a gust of wind whipped it away while he walked along a jetty and sent it into the sea 20ft below in Broadstairs, Kent.

Richard walked to town and sank a pint before wandering back to the beach to see if he could see it hours later.

The retired advertising photographer, a partire dal Dartford, aggiunto: “It was still damp and very sandy.
“I imagine someone had found it on the beach and put it on this post in the hope that I might find it, che ho fatto.

“As for my hat, it’s now back in its normal resting place and I’ll be wearing it with impunity from now on.”
Linda ha detto: “It’s become a famous hat. I will never complain about it again.”
