* 89 *

So, four days into the holidays and so far we have been busy, busy, busy.

First there was the wedding then on Sunday we had a trip up the road to Nannas to return the boys suits and a walk along the river.

Monday we had a walk along Roker beach, a very blustery walk I might add. It was quite windy and the sea was very rough with big waves and even people surfing.

There were quite a few broken lobster pots and more washed up seaweed than I can ever remember seeing before.

Whopping great big lumps of it all along the shoreline.

Halfway along we stopped for chips , you can't beat salt and vinegar chips beside the sea.

It was quite a refreshing walk and the cobwebs were most definately blown away.

We'll be here again at the weekend for the annual airshow but we'll be joined by a few thousand people this time.

Today it was not so windy so we ventured up to Causey Arch , about half an hours drive away.

Lots of little wooden bridges to cross which the boys loved.

Causey Arch was built in 1725 / 6 and is the oldest surviving single arch railway in the world.

These stairs were a killer but the view from the top was worth it.

We also found a new friend .... can you spot the face ?

Hub is back to work tomorrow so I think we'll be having a lazy day , I think we need it.

Great walk once again. That last photo is a keeper. Love the way his exhaustion shows even in his hands.

Such pretty photos! You all have been busy ~ how proud you must be of sweet Milo! He is so grown up- I can't believe it. Your boys looked so handsome dressed up for your sisters wedding ... just like little gentleman - Love that he has a blog! How cute! I'll have to share it with Henry.

Those chip looks good. Just seeing the windy beach photos makes me feel refreshed.

Lots of lovely fun to be had by the looks. I especially like your pics of the beach Lisa. Just salt on my chips thanks! x

PS. Love that new face you've discovered!

Loving the beach photos, we took the boys to Whitstable at the weekend. It was nice but very busy and not quite the same as a windy beach (I know which I prefer). Still, we also ate chips and I agree they do taste better by the sea! Bx
