So this is what we got up to. It just so happened that Pomps' Dad had a stall at the 'Stars of Time' convention at the Helicopter Museum. So we popped over to say hello and had a nose around. Pomps was a massive kid and had his photo taken with a storm trooper and the knightrider car, I however got far too excited about seeing some of the cast of Allo Allo (don't judge me).
We then headed down to the sea front to munch on our picnic, then set off for a stroll where we encountered DONKEYS, and then mooched around the pier. Despite being a bit too modern for my liking, the pier was pretty impressive and a bit like Narnia, it was much bigger inside than you would think. Apart from getting ripped off on the horse racing game that stole our money, we didn't go on anything because the queues were crazy.
We finished our stroll with a Whippy ice cream, look around the town and then a quick nose in ASDA before heading back to pick up Pomps' Nan and Grandad. It was lovely to see them all together and it totally pulled at my heartstrings. We said our 'goodbyes' and 'see you next years', but there's something I hate about old people being alone, so I probably would have kidnapped and adopted their friend if I could have.
So this was our day, and here are my photos:
