The first day of November, the sun has gone and the mist has descended (well it has here!!)
Other than rain, nothing puts us off a trip to the beach.
The children both love the sand dunes and my son sees it as a great achievement if his boots are filled with sand.
The incentive to walk is often a beach combing competition, the best beach find and you get something . . . . .often just knowing your the winner is enough!!
Today's winner, my daughter, found the dog fish body!! This was deemed the best find!
Although I came a close second with three mermaid purses on one piece of sea weed.
My Son said he was joint second because he held it up for the camera.
It always amazes me that although our nearest beach isn't deemed spectacular, the mood is so different every time you visit. Today there was no wind and the sea was 'mill pond' calm, yet other days the wind whistle and the the waves crash up onto the beach.
Although we had a lovely walk, part of me always enjoys the dramatic sea with enough wind to blow all your cares away.
p.s. One of the children (I cant remember which one) called the beach or seaside, beachside when they where small and it just stuck. So as a family, weirdly, we all call it beachside!!
