A trip to the beach was needed, it had been too long since I last saw the sea, and little ‘T’ had never been before either. It’s only 40 minutes away by car so we really should go more often, I prefer it on less sunny days when the beach is empty! Grandma came along and was lots of help with running around after ‘T’ and playing in the sand with her. The weather started out very gloomy but soon brightened up in the afternoon. We had a wander on the beach, a coffee in a cafe to avoid the rain and a wander along the pier and through the gardens before stopping under a tree in a park for some lunch whilst ‘T’ had a snooze.
