Too far to walk

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.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. We could use more cloud watching stations – how cool!
    Nothing like dunes and beach – love the pictures (And there’s a place dogs can sit and enjoy, too)

    You know, that sounds like pretty much the perfect day! 😀

  3. I would so love to walk along a nice beach in decent weather, with Puppy Cody. I’m so tired of walking through snow, ice and rain – we had an ice storm over the weekend, now we have freezing rain, and it’s supposed to turn to snow – again – in a few hours. Enough already!
