A Brief Interlude.
A dire wet day here today after a night of heavy rain. Only a couple of days ago we collected Granny after school for a brief trip to the beach. Isabella drew in the sand.
This gorgeous little horse appeared and I realised that my baby is moving forward, capable now of transferring images from her head onto sand (if not so much onto paper - she seems to find it much easier to use her finger as a pencil).
The sunlight turned sea lettuce into even more vibrant greens.
And the sea rolled gently in with silky jades and milky blues tumbling towards the rocks.
Lucy contemplating who knows what...
before deciding to do a little limbering up on the warm sand.
This little escape to the shore made us all feel so good and reminded me that I really must spare time to do it again whenever I can before the darkest days of winter arrive.
We ate gingerbead before heading home for tea. The rain outside my window this morning tells me we won't be going today and storms are predicted for the weekend. Sounds as though we'll be indoors then playing games, lighting fires, knitting & sewing. Oh, and of course eating!
Have a good weekend x
