As a follow-up to an earlier post here are a few photo’s from our day at the seaside.

Beach Parking

£3 to park all day on the beach

Parking is great, there are miles of beach to park on. This beach is a great walking beach but not really one for a beach type of holiday as the tide when it goes out it REALLY goes out, about 2 miles, so you can’t really go swimming. It can get very windy as well,  so not for a lazy day sunning yourself, but for walking along the vast open sands, especially with dogs, it is perfect.

Beautiful day, with a beautiful woman.

Shadows first time on a beach – he discovered he likes digging in sand

Shadow was a bit overwhelmed by the vast openness, having previously only really walked in countryside and forest. He tried, but failed many times to catch a gull.

I loved running around with shadow on the beach barefoot, wonderful.

We did notice this little hovercraft whizzing around on the water.

A spot of lunch and a cup of tea!

After a lovely walk all over the beach we retreated to our car for refreshments. Trying to get shadow to drink some water from his bowl was a nightmare, but he managed to get some water before most of it went on the sand…

We then decided to have a walk over to the Down

Steps UP the down?

You pass a house near these steps and this is greeting you as you pass….

Hello

Hello

It was a bank holiday weekend here, so it was quite busy compared to when we came a couple of years ago.

There is plenty of Flora up there, there was a botany group exploring. W had a lovely walk along to top and enjoying the views.
