Out and about; sooth...

It's still pretty hot down here despite the odd showers, but I've been brave and been out in the sun, without melting!


Yesterday we popped to a new adventure type playground up at a woodland park, Errington Woods, I used to look after years ago. It over looks the edge of Teesside with the long sweep of Tees Bay and it's industry and to the back rols away to the edge of the North York Moors. The rustic equipment was pretty impressive, it was also huge, too big for Beren really, but we still had some fun...





After a bit of fun there we thought and icecream and the beach were in order, so we headed off to Skinningrove, an old mining and fishing village where we used to live.


An old cobble looks out to sea...


...though often the cobbles used are double-enders (below), which are easier to land in beach surf with no need to back in.


It was wonderful to be on 'our beach' again, though we felt a sad loss of the greyhounds racing around the sands.



Beren cheered us up though with his antics in and out of the water...





With a cold, wet and hungry Beren it was time to go back to my Mam's for a nice plate of stew and dumplings...


Wedding tomorrow, eek!
