Bexhill-on-Sea

I’ve got many memories of Bexhill-on-Sea throughout my life. It is the family home of my Dad and even though I didn’t grow up there we visited family often when we were children. Less so in our adult lives but since my Dad has migrated back to his home town the option to visit more with our little family is there.

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

Last week the Robot and I took a mini epic solo trip down to the South coast to visit my Dad and the Robots Grandad. We’ve not been down to Bexhill since the Robot was 5 months old and boy has he changed since then. After a 7 hour train journey and 5 train changes we arrived for a couple of days of fun.

Fathers Day Fun

When Fathers Day rolls round I don’t tend to think much of it. Maybe because I don’t quite get to see much of my Dad or maybe it just feels like another day. Today though on Dave’s 2nd Father’s Day I’ve been thinking a bit differently. We always go on …

It seems a bit out of place writing a blog post about the rain when most of the UK has had a mini heat wave and lots of nice spring weatherbut I am going to anyway. The Robot loves to splash.

Cathedral Caves – Langdale

Following on from our Tunnel Obsession a few weeks ago we decided to visit Cathedral Caves at Langdale in the Lake District.  Dave first took me to visit these caves on a cycling trip many years ago and all I could remember was the cave rather than tunnels so I …

Robot on the Rocks

Before you start wondering whether I’ve created a new cocktail, I’ll stop you there. Robot on the Rocks is a tale of unexpected adventure. One that unbeknown to us would make a washed out day magical again.. The day started at 2am. when Dave, who had worked late, no, not …

A Day Trip to West Cumbria

West Cumbria feels like its in the middle of nowhere, you have to navigate round the whole of the Lake District to get there on small roads and often behind several tractors or (shudders) caravans.  When you are there though it’s worth the hour and a half journey from our …
