A couple of weeks ago, we went to the airshow. We don't live very far from the beach, which is where the air show was hosted!
We got to the seafront around lunch time and ate some chips in one of the little gardens along the seafront. You can not beat chips along the seafront, it's one of favourite things to do! And a really nice treat.
It was SO busy but we didn't let that put us off. We went for a walk around after we'd had something to eat, just before the airshow started!
There were lots of stalls and raffles, things for sale and what not. It was fab! The kids had a lovely time, too.
We watched rescue helicopters 'rescue' people from the sea (who wern't really in danger, they were just demonstrating). We also learned a lot about how rescues happens and a lot about the helicopters and pilots, too. Such good fun & educational, too.
There was also all kind of airplanes and war planes demonstrating. We learned a lot about those, too! It was amazing watching the planes fly over the water and do all kinds of stunts.
Can you guess what our favourites were?
It was lovely at the end, when the red arrows were leaving and the whole beach was cheering and clapping! Was rather amazing.
The kids also got to burn off energy on the beach, build some sand castles and have a little look around all the different stalls. We didn't win on the raffle but I did treat the kids to a little something each :) Bless 'em. We can't wait to go again next year!! Such a cheap, fun day out.
Over all we had a fantastic time!
