Saltfleetby is just north of Mablethorpe on the Lincolnshire coast. As we had all Friday to get there we did a detour via Coningsby and East Kirby. We had our lunch in the viewing area at Coningsby. After the 6 Typoons had landed, two Spitfires from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight landed. The one in the foreground gave a short aerobatic display before it came in.

This is a more recent mark of Spitfire. Would have been too late for the Battle Of Britain.
After Coningsby we visited the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirby. Skye is just exiting the cockpit of a Canberra bomber. Just couldn’t get enough of those aeroplanes!
Main exhibit is a Lancaster bomber. It is not airworthy at the moment but they occasionally run up the Merlin engines. Dogs welcome in this museum.
Now that’s what you call an empty beach. Bright sunshine and nothing but sea and sand. Just north of Mablethorpe. As we were walking to the beach we met a group of 6 burly coast guards carrying a casualty on a stretcher. I thought it was an exercise but it turned out that one of the wind- carters had been lifted in the strong wind and slammed back onto the beach and broke his ankle.
Skye laid in the dunes resting, or is he? Could be pretending to be a lion waiting for a passing antelope!

Skye and his master relaxing in the sunshine outside the holiday cottage. It was a bit remote but the dunes were just down the road. They were teeming with rabbits.
The five sail windmill at Alford. It was working when we got there. We had to climb a few stairs to get to the floor where the flour was being produced. I bought a bag of flour and intend to make a loaf of bread.
