We're incredibly lucky to be able to nip to a beach whenever we feel like it, and in south Wales there is a massive selection of sandy, pebble or rocky beaches to choose from. The local sandy beach is Barry Island and fortunately it's a gloriously wide expanse of sand deemed worthy of a blue flag for cleanliness.
It seems hard to believe today considering the incessant rain, that it was only last weekend that we had our first sunny season trip there. Hot enough for The Boy to strip down to his bathing suit and warrant sun protection cream.
Don't be alarmed by the colour of the sea, it's just the sand mixed in with the water!
It was great to see my little boy, who'd been so poorly the previous week, frolicking amongst the waves and really enjoying his childhood.
