When Only The Beach Will Do

Crashing waves.

Frothing,  foamy, Neptune's white horses.

Gusting winds.

Sand blowing diagonally through the air.

Squeals of laughter from a gleeful and playful family enjoying the abandoned swathes of golden sands.

When Only The Beach Will Do

All that squelchy sand is a blank canvas for running, jumping and falling over in.

And do you know where he went after he's verified how saturated and sand encrusted his gloves were?

Yep, right to 'give mummy a cuddle'.

    You summed it up in those few words.

    Of course he came and gave you a hug! Covered in mud/yogurt/snot/anything sticky? That's when mummy cuddles are the best 🙂 Fabulous beach, once the snow goes, I want to start going to the beach again, I love it in the winter when it's windswept and quiet. Gorgeous photos, and like Emma I was just thinking how grown up The Boy was looking x #CountryKids

    Beautiful post, wonderful words and fabulous photos. I love your beach – it always looks so good whatever the weather. Love that one of The Boy looking directly at the camera 🙂

    Wee man loves the beach too! He loves getting his hands into the sand too and refuses to wear gloves so gets well cold. This looks like a fab day. I like how you describe yourself as a playful family…sounds like my kind of family 🙂
