Skywatch At The Seaside

Despite a gorgeous weekend we are now back to drab grey skies which to be honest I actually prefer as it is cooler and I hate the hot weather.  Somewhere inbetween the freezing temperature of winter and the heat of summer is just right for me.  OK so we don't get much heat for much of the time but I don't like it when it is red hot.

So with grey skies here I decided to grab another picture from our jaunt to the seaside a couple of weekends ago.

and here is some of the rest of it

we had cheesy chips (fries) by the harbour with the seagulls for company

there were icecreams

and a donkey ride

Daisy had her first beach experience.  Living too far from the coast to visit too often we hadn't actually ever taken her until now.
The first thing she wanted to do was dig

but soon discovered the sea once we threw her toy in there.  Unfortunately she decided she was going to swim out and not get the toy which ended up with me wading in to get it.  After the swim out for a few seconds she didn't attempt it again but was happy to go a little way in.

there was also digging by the boys

the beach we went to is at Bridlington on the yorkshire coast.  Dogs are allowed to go on the south beach past a certain point.  South beach runs for miles.  Once the tide is out there is extensive space for dogs to run and kids to play.

I agree, give me the real spring or fall weather...summer is a bit too hot for this southern girl ;)

I'm not fond of extreme heat either. We've had four days of above normal temperatures and I'm ready for some cooler ones. :)
