This was the first time we saw the ocean on our trip. The tide was out and it was majestic. Looking down from the town, you can't help but smile at the families and their dogs playing in the tide pools. Amazing.

Not one of the best North Sea beaches and limited accessibility at high tide but an opportunity to look in rock pools and also to see if you can strike lucky by finding a fossil or some jet
