Neither of them could get the mill to turn a full circle.

We were told that a slave girl could have been bought for 3 silver coins, she would then have spent her days spinning this mill. Ending up with an oddly shaped pair of shoulders.

We loved watching the way the vikings make fire using flint and a small piece of cloth.

J was very excited to try out the silverware.

What I didn’t get a picture of was our little friend R and her mum A joined us on the beach too.
R took our J by the hand and led him to the top of the very highest dune and . . . .Leapt!
J was Delighted!
I asked him, would he have done that on his own?
He said, No!
I asked was he glad that R had taken him?
YES! It was brilliant Mummy!
