Going on with my mission to visit local landmarks that I've never been to before yesterday we decided to go to Souter Lighthouse , a victorian lighthouse which was the first electrical lighthouse in the world apparantly.
Luckily for us the sun was shining, in fact the morning was glorious.
The views were amazing
There was a small allotment garden and the produce is used in the cafe, there were also a few cabbages for sale
At the bottom of these steps there are a train and a pirate ship for kiddies to play on and quite a few picnic tables
Baby G fell out of the train face first and scraped his head but he just laughed and carried on playing!
This little boat is a replica of the one that Grace Darling made her famous rescue in
There were lots of birds, swallows and house martins were swooping, skylarks were singing, starlings all lined up on a fence
and dozens of sea birds
You can actually pay a small fee and go up to the top of the lighthouse itself but it wasn't really an option for us as small children aren't allowed.
and this was just what we did in the morning!!
Tomorrow I'll post what we did in the afternoon after the downpour stopped. See you tomorrow.
