Minnis Bay at Dusk in the Winter - Family Adventure #2

It is true to say Minnis Bay is one of my favourite places in this huge world (ok I really haven't traveled far) but I just love being their. Maybe because I grew up here and have many fond memories, I do not know I just love it. I remember when we moved literally up the road I went down with a disposable camera and took a photo of the sun set every night (yes 11 year old sado I know!). So any opportunity to get down their and experience a sunset I am game.

We had had a lazy afternoon with 4 out of the 5 of us having a massive nap and I decided we needed to get out. So after ignoring the grunts we got our coats and wellies on and off we went, football in tow. It was about 4:30pm by the time we had got their and there was a beautiful glow from the evening sunshine, I was glad I had brought my camera and took some pictures of the kids with the beautiful background. Minnis bay really does have the most awesome sky, especially in the summer when the sun sets just over the sea.

The boys went of to play football and I took the toddlers into the play area, where Little Bear spent the whole time trying to get to Daddy and play football. So after taking him there he decided it was too cold and requested he got held whilst Daddy played football with Pants. I took Ami to see the sea and the beautiful sunset. Sadly she has not got my love for a Minnis Bay sunset (yet) and wanted to go back to the park. So of I went toddler in one hand cannon in the other destined to get some beautiful pictures too keep.

We all ended up in the play park after a wonderful sunset, always reminds me of walking the dogs with my dad. Pants challenged me to see how high I could swing him on one of those large swing things. Then Ami joined in and Little Bear for a quick swing. Its these little memories I hope they cherish, the time where we decide to head somewhere as a family rather than do the same old thing, stick on a film and wait for dinner. Its nice to have a bit of change and nice to get out and experience fresh air and the beach. Just a trip to the park you may do that all the time, we have been a bit rubbish over winter so for the kids it was a treat.

Here is some more pictures of out little trip.

  4. It looks like a great way to spend an afternoon before heading back in for tea. It's important to cherish the little things in life like the sunset over a local beach and a play in the park and your three seem to at least know how to do one of those things!
