"Oh I do like to be beside the seaside"

We woke up this morning to brilliant sunshine so I packed a picnic and we headed off down the coast to Saltburn - On - Sea,   you've got to make the most of a sunny day haven't you?

As we were going into Saltburn we passed a church that had a "table top sale" notice pinned to a tree so we called in to see what was on offer, I managed to find a big bag full of goodies, these are just a few.

After our picnic we headed down to the beach where  we saw  the  donkeys who were very kindly giving all the little boys and girls a ride on their back

then we had a walk along the prom eating our ice creams.

"stop me and buy one"

We got a ride back up to the top which was lovely

I asked the chap if I could buy his hut but he said he wasn't selling it!!

I wish.

Outside the library someone had been yarn bombing, knitted books were sewn on the railings some had worms on them,

story books

what a great idea,  knitting popping up everywhere, it makes everyone smile.

Wouldn't it be nice if the sun shone everyday?

What a great day you've had, and after all the rain we've been having I don't blame you for taking advantage of the sun! Thank you for letting us share some of it with you.

Looks like a lovely day, my dear. I've been wondering where you are as I've not heard from you for ages. Did you use the CK mag I sent you? I hope you're ok, lovely. Xx

Lovely pictures...used to live near Teeside as a child and Saltburn was a day trip, train ride away. It looks even better now than it did back then! Love the heart shape chalk board too!

Well thats a blast from the past I lived 3 miles from Saltburn most of my life. When we were kids we would walk there most days through the woods in the summer hols. I love it, your photos bring back some happy memories xx
