Summer feels well and truly over at the moment. I wake up in the morning and my feet are freezing. Most evenings I debate putting on the heating as it gets a little chilly and I feel a bit disappointed. So here is a nice summery post from when we didn't need a jumper to go outside.
You may have notice me mention before that we live by the beach, we love it we really do. Living just a few minutes walk from the seaside is the best thing ever on a rubbish day, I think the sea can have such a calming effect. One Sunday in the Summer it was Sunny believe it or not so we headed to our local beach Minnis Bay.
It was such a lovely sunny day, although we went later in the evening as Arsenal were playing and my husband just had to watch it. I did say that this would be the only Sunday we will wait in for the football but I very much doubt it. I am well and truly a football widow sometimes.
The beach was busy when we got there but was filtering down. The best time to be on the beach, people have left all there sandcastles and sometimes buckets and spades. You can go round and jump on mounds of sand that you sand that you didn't have to build. Ami was the only one that was prepared she went with her swimming costume ready. We didn't think the kids would go swimming but we could not get them out of the sea. Well I say all the kids Asti sat stubbornly on the sand refusing to go near the water.
The toddlers had a blast in the sea, it wasn't too deep meaning we could let them paddle and splash around. I just enjoyed being out the house and not being cooped up. It was a poor summer so when there was a sunny day I felt like we had to make the most of it.
I am sorry if I may have posted too many beach post this year but I do love it. I love Minnis Bay it will always be my favourite beach. Heres to what I am hoping is an Indian Summer so we can make the most of it for a few more weeks at least. Heres a few more pictures below. It all seems so long ago now.
