Our latest Beach Adventures

I write this as I just finished two long days in a hot stuffy hospital with no air con and sweat dripping down my face al day long. All the time at work I was thinking about how nice it would be to be at the beach. Building Sand castles and eating too much ice creams. Its such a blessing to have the beaches on our doorstep, especially when inland the weather has been rather hot. I love the beach because you do not have to spend lots ok if your like me you will get roped into buying many ice creams and drinks oh and spades because we don't have 5000 at home already.

So here is us  four beach trips in four days. West bay, Westbrook bay and Minnis Bay. Minnis bay will always be my fave as thats where I grew up. I took the two elder children crabbing thought I could pass down some knowledge sadly the crabs didn't get the message and we caught only five. The child in me was very disappointed, I just don't know where they have all gone. Asti also touched a jelly fish, don't worry he didn't get stung. We even fit in a post nursery and school beach session, Asti said he wanted to go home and he was bored but he let himself enjoy it eventually.

It is always such fun on the beach, the kids love it, I love it.  Its win win! Below are a few of the photos that I have taken of the little sweeties. Such a beautiful place we live in, although the photo below does contain some seaweed but thats all good adds as extra decorations to sand castles.


  1. The bay looks really fun. We so need to go on a trip sometime soon! I'm glad you got to spend a day in the fresh air... I know how hot hospitals can get lol... but as the patient! Have a fab weekend.

  2. I really want to move to be closer to some nice beaches. In the north west they are a bit grotty in all honesty. Yours look wonderful.

  3. Oh I love Minnis Bay, it is where I grew up too and my parents still have a beach hut down there. Beautifull pics and I love Ami's dress

  4. 4 beaches in 4 days certainly helps to make up for your hot and sticky hospital shift. Gorgeous photos of beach fun and glad the jellyfish didn't cause you any problems. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.
