Last week, I decided it was high time we spent some time at the beach, having hardly been “beaching it” all summer.
The kids and I packed the shade tent (which I subsequently neglected to use) and galloped off to the beach.
It was the most fantastic day, and we had a great time:
digging in the sand,
and befriending sea kelp.
The kids always get along so well when we are playing outside, and the fresh air always brightens my mood. We investigated a dead crab, sea kelp, waves and rocks. Of all the things we learned that day, however, the most important was this:
For goodness sake – wear sunscreen! Or rather, please don’t forget to apply sunscreen to yourself as well as your kids. Save your back as I didn’t mine (especially if you happen to be a redhead).
Overall, though, we had a blast!
Many thanks to the Pacific Ocean. =)
