Happy birthday NB, we were on the beach with our dog too, lovely morning at Minnis Bay on the North Kent shore. Nice crisp morning but warm enough at lunch time to eat fish n chips outside😊.

A few years ago we walked a section of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, stunning scenery and lovely coastal villages. Great little busy service runs along the route . Must go back one day and do another section.
