The rain was coming down strong and steady, so to the internet I went in search of an inside haven.
I found it at the Hull Lifesaving Museum. We drove until the road met the sea and pulled into the tiny parking lot. A renovated house, there wasn't much to look at until we reached the Children's Loft tucked way up in the attic. With the rain gently tapping on the roof and the lights casting a warm glow, it was perfect.
The kids sailed, fought off pirates, and pulled up lobster traps. Then we all climbed the ladder to the Widows Peak and spotted the lighthouses guiding the boats home.
Im not sure we will ever drive to the end of the earth for this museum again, but for that day it was worth it :)
