Sunday Skate

Earlier in the spring (I am playing blogging catch up!) after a long drive back from Essex visiting Mike’s family for the weekend, we got back to the Treehouse and decided to make the most of the last bit of sunshine and head down to the beach. We took my penny skateboard and a mini picnic to enjoy ‘beside the sea’.

I had the first go – Alum Chine has a long stretch of smooth tarmac through the trees so it is perfect for skateboarding on. I went down a (mini) hill and set top speed – about 10mph, so fast!

I then passed the board over to Mike, he unfortunately hit a large twig and had a bit of a tumble – whooops!

After surviving the rest of the Chine, we arrived at the beach just as the sun was setting.

We walked along a groyne to avoid getting sandy shoes and sat near the water’s edge to watch the sunset and enjoy the last glimpse of the sunshine.

Our beach picnic contained a flask of hot coffee and a couple of cream cakes – they were eaten very quickly. The skateboard made for a great table!

We stayed there until it started to get dark and then headed back home to make some fajitas for dinner.
