Two weekends ago we visited Brighton all thanks to Dan TDM! It appears he has been Pokemon hunting there, so as we actually had a Saturday without any karate, we headed to the coast for the day.
I used to love visiting Brighton with my Mum when I was younger and although it seemed busier than I remembered it is still a fantastic place to visit. We started by a stroll around the pavilion where the boys collected some pokeballs.
We stopped at Wahaca’s for lunch and was extremely impressed with their menu. Having taken the boys to Costa Rica we knew that they were fine with mild quesadillas and tacos, which is exactly what they got. It was so nice to be able to eat somewhere with a bit of flavour, and so nice to see the boys eating a healthy meal with no chips!
After a quick spot of shopping we headed to the sealife centre. We have Merlin passes which allows us entry. To be honest I wouldn’t want to pay the gate price of £18.50. Like all the Sealife centres we have visited, it is nice enough for a look around but not somewhere where you would spend more than a hour or so.
In this particular Sea Life centre there were some giant turtles which were absolutely beautiful to watch swimming alongside giant rays. There was a hands on section where you could stoke an anenome. A new one on me! The boys were kept busy with a book to stamp along the way and a medal at the end.
We then headed for the beach. I had never really considered a pebble beach to be a good thing before. I mean you can’t build sandcastles. But that is the best thing. You don’t get sand everywhere. Even better is the entertainment it can bring 3 young boys. I kid you not, they spent over an hour picking out stones and throwing them into the water. Infact they didn’t even want to leave.
A relaxing day, watching the sea, whilst the boys played. Now that makes a great day out for me.
