It has been glorious this morning and rather than stay in, we got the washing out on the line after breakfast and decided to go for a drive.
The coast offers us a choice of beaches and if we were megga fit and forty years younger, we could walk along the sand from here to Skegness.
What is nice is that each has areas that are dog friendly all year, as well as where dogs are not allowed between 1st May and 30th September.
Anderby Creek is popular for caravan holidays and has a ‘cloud watch station’.
Mirrors are angled up at the sky and you can cloud watch to your heart’s content. There is a guide to identification too, which makes interesting reading. Maggie was OK going up to the platform, but the metal steps have regular holes in them, so she couldn’t judge distance to come down and had to be carried.
These images are from google:
The beach is fabulous. Miles of sand (a lot we think may have visited our shoreline a little while ago!) and unlike here, there didn’t seem to be lines and lines of shells which can cut tender young feet to ribbons.
It was relatively quiet today, and we met up with a young family who had been paddling. They’d been to Butlin’s at Skegness for the weekend, and we sympathised because the weather has been so lousy.
These are my photos and not intended to run together. My idea of S P A C E !
There’s a cafe here, and they do a decent cup of tea and some pretty yummy cake at reasonable prices as well as the basic cooked meals. They are also dog friendly in their garden, but not inside. On such a lovely day today, this was no problem and Maggie was content to sit and scrounge off us as usual.
