Lovely day out full of fun
JodiBAug 23rd 2019
Wow what a fabulous day out. Free parking was a great start! Started with fishing in the rock pools, we caught lots of little fish (still trying to work out what they were!) shrimps, and crabs - all different sizes! We all totally loved it. Wouldn’t go into the bathing pool bit without anything on your feet though cos it’s full of released crabs! ????
Then we spent the rest of the day building sand castles. Watch out cos when the tide is coming back, it’s very fast and catches you out easily! 3 active and very observant life guards on duty today. They were actually excellent. Toilets by all the food places and a lone loo by the crabs and rock pools. A play park on the green andots of places to eat or get an ice cream.
Clean, sandy beach with tons of lovely shells. Lots of seaweed, which got a bit pongy! But together a fabulous day out which was very cheap! Always a bonus.
