The Sun Shone!
No windchimes to show just yet because THE SUN CAME OUT! Hooray! At last! Oh the relief to finally see blue skies, to feel the warmth on bare skin. Wonderful. So, we did what you do when your children are lucky enough to live on the coast: we packed a picnic and headed off to the beach for a long, perfect day of filling rockpools with water...
Spied fishing nets in wait for the tide to reveal the biggest and bestest of pools where crabs and shrimp and all manner of sealife would be hiding.
Completed a pleasing pile of sewing to the sound of the sea crawling over the sand.
Skipped through the shallows in a pretty sundress.
Doggy-paddled for so long I thought Isabella would never warm up again. Amazing what a cuddle wrapped up in a huge towel can do - Isabella was wrapped, not the cuddle you understand!
Tried to jump on shadows, but they just kept skipping away over the soft, soft sand.
Sat and soaked up this view over Pendennis Point.
And generally smiled...a lot!
It was fun and the much-needed sun burned all day. Hopefully today will prove the same and the children can spend another day racing around by the sea, splashing and building castles, and generally having the best of times. Windchimes next post.
Have a lovely day whatever you are up to x
