Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Saturday morning wasn't looking very promising, but it was nice and warm, so we took a chance and set off for Broadstairs. Took some blankets, bucket & spade, sun cream, snacks and plenty to drink. On the way the weather improved and it turned out to be a lovely warm and sunny day. We parked up along the coastal top and Ben got this beautiful photo. This was the view from the car. Pretty breath taking.
We where all hungry and set off for the town.

After a little look around the town we found this chippy.
So here's Ben waiting for the food to be cooked, hmmm! I had scampi and chips my favourite and how nice it came with salad and tar-tar sauce, you don't get that everywhere. Ben ad his fav sausage and chips. He's not a fish eater, in fact he hates it. Yuk! fishy he laughs when I eat it.
The girls enjoyed a bit of everything we had and shared a couple of chips with a seagull. That was sitting watching us eat. lol cheeky thing!

Tummies full and happy we set off for the beach. Where the girls, Ben, me and Butter Bunny played for hours. Here's Molly taking Bunny for a walk on the sand.
I love getting my feet wet and we took it in turns taking the girls down to the sea. And collecting shells, pebbles and water in Molly's bucket.
I never got a photo of the sand castle Ben and Molly made, lol the girls knocked it all down before I had time too.

They had great fun building it and Molly enjoyed filling the little moat around it with water but got very cross every time it disappeared into the sand. lol "oh no it's all gone" she would say. By now she was just in her nappy. Poor little thing she fell head first into the sea, but didn't seem to mind to much. So off came the top and jeans and on went extra sun cream. She was happy that's all that mattered.

After we'd dried, de-sanded and dressed the girls, we went off for one last walk up to the town, for ice cream and cold drinks. Along the sea front there was a lovely craft/vintage fair. I was delighted and looked at all the lovely stalls. Ben bought me a cute cream aged lantern and I picked up a postcard for my Mum and Dad. Braodstiars holds a very special place in our hearts. My Nana used to holiday here every year and it brings back memories of her.

What a lovely day. Home we came happy, sandy and all tuckered out.

More photos from our fun out next time. I hope everyone else had a great weekend too.
