Last week Caroline invited William and I to go to the beach on Saturday with her, Trev and Charlie. I, of course, said "yes, please" but William stayed at home. He had to take the car for it's M.O.T. and also had some work in the garden to do.
Saltburn by the Sea is up on the northeast coast about a two hour ride away. We packed a picnic and all the other assorted necessities for a day on the beach and set off around 9.30 a.m. Charlie was excited and asked the age old question "Are we there yet?" before we were even on the motorway!
It was a bit overcast when we got there and a bit breezy too but nevertheless we claimed a spot on the beach and enjoyed our picnic. Charlie and his daddy played in the sand. A text message from Victoria informed us that the sun was cracking the flags at home! However by the time we were strolling down the pier the sun had come out where we were too.
Saltburn is a lovely place and is a magnet for surfers. There were tons of them in the water on Saturday. It was fun to stroll down the pier and watch them do their thing from the vantage point the pier provided. Charlie found looking down at the water through the gaps in the boards more fascinating though.
We had a lovely, long, refreshing, easy going kind of day by the sea and this much I know - it was definitely my kind of day! Thanks Caroline and Trev!
