Then there was sunshine....

The weather was good Saturday morning, well goodish, this summer has been really pants for the kids. The swimming pool has been covered most of it and the rain..... when will it end - probably 6 September when they go back to school!!

So, as the sun decided to shine in the morning, we collected up the kidlets and headed off to Cromer.
The sun was warm, wind was well, windy, jackets required. We blew along the pier, took a look (again) at the Lifeboat and then headed to the beach where the tide was out (a bit) on the other side of the pier, as you can see from the photos, the tide was well and truly in on the other side.

All three got their feet wet, no wet bottoms thankfully. We then trundled to the arcade so they could waste some 2ps - Genny did actually succeed on one of them and got a little purse thingy. Then to the outdoor amusements. Thankfully we had some tickets left over from previous trips and they were still taking them so they got 3 rides. Helterskelter, could do with oiling so they come down faster, then to the teacups and finally on the slide which was more successful speed wise if they laid down rather than sit up! Had to have an ice cream of course (and me, even on a diet can eat them you know!).

We blew back to the car and then thought that we would take the coast road over to Wells, I don't particularly like going there on my days off as feel like I am off to work. As we were going along the coast road, so the dark clouds loomed. Yup, you guessed it, parked up, got down to the quay and then the spots of rain finally decided to fall from above. We just went into Playland and they ran around for I don't know how long, a couple of hours maybe. We watched them, watched the rain, had a cup of tea, watched them exhaust themselves. Took an opportunity to make a departure as the rain finally stopped and off to the car, loaded them in and headed off home, a good few hours as I think it was around 5pm when we got back for some food. Arrived home and as we were driving along through Thursford/Melton, down came the rain (again). Torrential, I got soaked getting out of the car to the front door!!

When it finally stopped, went and checked on the chooks in their very muddy lodgings. Wellies required. Two kids came to join me and between us we got hold of the muddy footed Belle and Beau. So they have been indoctrinated into cuddles with humans! Plus I got some pecking spray on them as the other three, Dot, Coralie and Twodees are pecking. We all got muddy clothes as I said it was very muddy, you know that squidgy sound under your boots, that was it.

So, an eventful day. Fun even though it rained (a lot).
