|Bob's photo of the beach sign|
Bob asked could we go to the play park first before we went onto the beach. So we parked at The Magnum car park, but sadly since we were last at the play park it has been taken away. But there was plenty of other things to do and see so ff we went.
First of all we went round the boating pond, and there were people using the pond with their model boats.

As we went round the pond Bob found some fitness equipment. A lot of the parks in this area seem to have it, though I never actually see anybody using it.

Further round the pond Bob spotted a hill that he decided he was going to run up. But as he approached the hill a dog was chasing a ball down. The dog stopped for a drink in the pond. Shorty dog use to run up and down the same hill and get a drink in the pond as well.

We carried on walking further round, up to the brick dragon.

Bob took some photographs from on top of the dragon, he also took some video footage, but it would make you dizzy to watch. Will need to show him how to scan slowly for scenery.

He tried to play rolling down the hill but has not quite leant the knack. He was trying to do it sitting up and went across the way instead of down. He did mange to get rather grubby on the wet grass.

Next off we went down onto the beach itself.

|Bob reckoned this was a TARDIS.|
We had a very enjoyable afternoon, covered a fair distance, were out for the best part of three hours. Bob went home knackered. You know when he is tired as he holds you hand, and he was holding on as we crossed the field back by the pond to get back to the car.
