After a quick shopping trip into town our afternoon was spent down at Rockham Beach enjoying the lovely sunny day.
Peter and I occasionally climb down the steep wooden staircase to this beach in the course of our cliff walks but it has been a long time since we spent several hours enjoying a beach and lazing in the sun.
While Sam was splashing around in the water Kate, Alex and I walked along the beach until we got caught by an unexpectedly high wave. Milo was allowed to run off the lead and had a great time playing with a lurcher. It was funny to watch the lurcher speeding along on its long legs and then slow down to let Milo catch up. Neither of them was too keen on getting caught by the waves and they would scramble wildly to get out of the water.
We had taken tea, coffee and cake to enjoy on the beach and now Peter is making chips and Southern fried chicken with barbecue beans for supper though I,ll stick to a salad.
