It was a decent day and we had promised our little bear a trip to the seaside when we were both off work. So I grabbed the bucket and spade, a couple of towels, some drinks and snacks… not forgetting our little bear and hubby, and off we went on our merry way!
We’re only an hour from the nearest coastline but we’ve only been to the seaside a couple of times with our little bear. And it didn’t take long for her to want to feel the wet sand beneath her feet. We were there by 9am so had the beach pretty much to ourselves. Of course, we had to build the obligatory sandcastles, collect a few pebbles and have a go with a handful of 2 pence pieces in the amusements. That Minion was still clinging on for dear life when we left…! There were also cockles on the menu (yum – although our bear didn’t think much to them!), fish and chips and I’ve forgotten something. Ice cream!! What trip to the seaside would be complete without an ice cream?
I absolutely love being near to water and although a bit nippy in the water, we had the best day ever :)
