One of my favourite things to do near my birthday is head to the beach. Yes it's the middle of January. Yes it's cold. Yes it's a bit windy. But it's so lovely at the coast in the winter. Especially for someone who lives in pretty much the middle of the country! And it was a great time to introduce Melle to the seaside.
We googled good dog beaches and popped over (I say popped but it's a two hour drive each way) to Reighton Sands for a couple of hours on the beach then went for fish and chips looking over the beach at Bridlington. But mostly we watched the fur faces play on the beach.
And now I wonder why I don't live closer to the sea. It's a curse that happens every time I visit.
