A winter’s day up in the North East. The sun was shining and the kids needed to get out and run around a bit, so we took them down to the beach at Seaham. They love it there because you can quite often find bits of rounded coloured glass amongst the pebbles as a result of waste that was dumped onto the shore when there used to be a glass factory somewhere nearby.

We had a bit of a walk around the beach, but not for long, because the tide was coming in quickly, and then we followed it up with a trip into a nearby cafe to grab coffee, cakes and sticky sweets.

While we were there, we grabbed three geocaches on the way back to the car too.
