Hastings!

Great stay in a lovely AirBnB, loads of sea time and some history and bug hunting at the castle. Tried out crazy golf (Jack picked the hardest course!) and Emily won a free game with a hole in one!

Hastings and Battle Abbey

We spent the weekend in St Leonards and visited Hastings old town and then Battle Abbey on Sunday. Most of Saturday was spent on the beach having lunch, Poke hunting and looking for interesting rocks. On Sunday we spent most of the day looking around the Abbey and battlefield. Jack grumbled a bit about having nothing to do but was soon happily running round, reading the information boards and listening to the audio guide. He was adding in his own bits and bobs of information that he had learnt online last week. Afterwards we got the train back to Hastings, to the beach again. Jack was soon off exploring and found a crab washed up by the tide coming in. We also saw some seagulls sitting on rocks catching their lunch as the tide came in.

Monday Jack played Dinosaur King as always and won some prizes from the 2p machines. We had a cooked breakfast and then headed home.

Had another good day on Brighton beach with friends and no disagreements or problems, even with ten children! Jack didn’t want to go in the sea but was happy playing with and collecting stones. I had hoped to find a good sized rock to use as a door stop and one of the children found a chunk of flint a little bigger than my hand, that is now doing the job perfectly. Among all the stones I found a tiny holey stone and brought that home as well. I’ve loved them since I was a child so try to keep an eye out for them. This one I now have on a piece of cord as a necklace 🙂

Brighton 5/08/16

Had a lovely day in Brighton today. Spent a few hours on the beach and in the sea and then headed to the pier for some Pokémon hunting and rides. Saw and caught a few really good Pokémon including Haunter and Aerodacyl and Ponyta and of course brought home some rocks for Jack’s collection!

Next week we are hoping to start on the BFG jar hunt and are going to Pagan Pride in Southampton on Sunday 😀
