I’ve mentioned before that we are really lucky to live 5 minutes away from the beach. It is really easy to pop there after school or for an hour or two and soak up some sunshine and fresh air. Normally we steer clear of the ‘touristy’ elements, but every once in a while it is lovely to pretend that you are on holiday and enjoy a real British day at the seaside!!
It was too cold for sandcastles and paddling but we enjoyed sitting overlooking the sea and eating ice cream (it’s never too cold for ice cream is it?!)
We then took a walk along the promenade to check out the new climbing wall and beach huts.
We finished our little afternoon out with a little session in the arcades. The girls played on a ride or two and I got them a tub of 2p’s each which they loved putting in the slot machines. Bean pumped all hers in as quickly as she could but Jelly Baby savoured them and took all her ‘winnings’ back home with her!
