First stop: Nana’s house in North Yorkshire.We met up with lovely friends and we all built a sandcastle
It was Big. It had stairs and tunnels.
Then the sea came in.
A cat from long ago had helped to make the bricks for the fireplace.
I swam in the North Sea. I can confirm that it was, ahem, bracing.
Some of the local services were slightly worrying.
Aldeburgh beach, as ever, did not disappoint.
It was good to get away.
