When we were in Cornwall, which you can read more about here, we had to make a trip to the beach. Living as we do in the Midlands, beach trips are few and far between for us, so any time we’re close to the coast, we’ll get there, rain or shine! We went over to Polzeath beach, which was brilliant as we could park right on it.
The Husband got the kite out as it was very windy, which he enjoyed, though the kids ignored him!
Boo was all about the bucket and spade. It’s a requirement, isn’t it, when you go the the beach so rarely?
And Little Man absolutely loved paddling in the little stream..
By doing so with him, I discovered that my wellies leaked, which while annoying at the time, was an excuse to go shopping to buy more 😉 And despite him falling over and totally soaking himself within 2 minutes of being there, he carried on and adored it, screaming when we had to leave (and fully change his clothes in the car!).
It was cold, windy, and Little Man and I were wet, but we still all had fun! Now, I’m not saying that it wouldn’t have been better with warmth and no need for coats, though – one day we’ll have a trip to the beach just like that, one day…..!
