She would get a spade full of sand, run towards the sea and throw the sand at the water. At which point the wind blew the sand back up the beach. Rob was in charge of putting up the sand tent while I wrapped little m up in about 15 layers to keep out the chill.
Rob then set about the sandcastle, which was the sole aim of going to Skegness. Little i had hoped for a paddle but I can't honestly say that the water looked inviting.
Little i then continued to be happy with a strawberry ice cream. I would have been happy with a hot chocolate but it was forgotten.
So then we went to the seal sanctuary. Little M if you remember from a previous blog is a swimmer and although this feat is only achieved under water so she found the seals endlessly amusing.
On the way back to the car, Rob decided to take little i to see their sand castle one last time. Unfortunately, the tide had come in and the castle was gone. This taught i an invaluable lesson about the tides and that was the end of our trip to Skegness.
