Typical. Today my brother was coming down from Scotland to pick up his new car with his family . I'm being nice here I'm not overly fond of his wife and that's putting it politely. They have to young children N who is 6 months younger than Gabe and M who is 18 months. I've seen N twice and have never seen M.
We met up with my parents who were looking after N and M whilst my brother was picking up the car and my nephew Callum at the metro station and then we walked along the river and down to the seafront. It's not the beach we normally go to , this is the one where the airshows are every year.
One of the places we stopped at along the way is called the Red House. I didn't manage to take a full photo of it so I borrowed this one so you could see.
It's made to look like a house that was bombed during the war. Can you see the coat hanging up behind the door and the books on the table?
We don't get family photos very often even if it does look like there is an alien spaceship hovering above Callums head.
We continued on and went passed the marina and I'm ashamed to say I've never actually been here before and it's so close to where we live I have no idea why.
After the marina we hit the beach but like I said , not exactly the day to go swimming!
By now we had been joined by my brother and the SIL so we headed off across the beach to get a warm cuppa from that red building in the distance.
After filling up on sausage sandwiches ( the kiddies not me ) we headed back to the bus stop . No car seats in the new car yet so not safe for the children. I think if the weather had been nicer we would have just walked back to town but it really was bitterly cold.
In the summer this place is absolutely teaming with people and there are ice cream vans everywhere. I do hope your Saturday was a bit warmer than ours.
