Hot Water Beach

Dig Your Own Hot Tub

Like the Time Team, our first few exploratory trenches didn't turn up what we were expecting, maybe we could have done with that big hairy chap (Mick?), but then we found the scolding seam of water that runs between the high and low tide mark. We dug our sand bath with a sturdy steel shovel and got to enjoy it for about an hour, before the in-coming tide crashed over our sea defences and us. The we remembered the weep holes that are in our wall next to the river at home, used to stop the build-up of water pressure in the river, so we did likewise and bought our sand spa a few extra minutes of time, before it merged completely with the Pacific.
