To the couple from Canada who helped us get unstuck at the beach! You saved the day!
I gave them my card, which has this website on it. The full report is on my personal blog.
Just to give you some Hull-Oakes content, here is our other stranding near the mill in 2006. We had pulled off to watch the train go by and the front end slipped down in to the ditch. A kind lady down the road (probably a Hull) got her 4x4 and pulled us out.
