Beach time Boy

Barry island

So it's not been the warmest week but it has been fairly dry so we decided to head off to the seaside for a little bit of fun in the sand, which was a lovely change from our normal forest adventures. I feel really lucky that Mr A is not in school yet as it's means that week days are still fairly quiet - unlike the madness of school holidays which means packed beaches and less chilled atmosphere. We headed down to Barry, a beach I would normally not go to but we had a great time, collectingn three very pretty sea snail shells, making sand castles and dipping our feet into the sea - the first time this year. We enjoyed a little lunch on the sand, even though this meant being surrounded by seasgulls of which my little man has no fear and runs after then as soon as they come near.

Even though it was windy we had fun running around and Mr A loved the sand between his toes, as did I. We also went for a little walk up above the beach with beautiful views across the channel and ended the day with small ice-creams and I cannot wait for out next seaside adventure.

Beautiful view


This week's country kid post is a little short as my laptop is currently in for repairs - boohoo so I am working off a very slow and old computer but couldn't miss one of my favourite linkys - so if your all about the outdoors than why not join up.

    1. Thanks so much for the lovely comment, we were lucky to go on a weekday - I think during summer and over a bank holiday it's manic!

  2. Oh it looks grand! We are still patiently waiting to get to the seaside here in Scotland with the wee man! Hopefully this summer we will make a day of it. I love his t-shirt!

    1. Hi Sabrina

      Thanks for stopping by. I use to live in Edinburgh and occasionally when it was warm enough would go to Portobello beach. Really hope this summer brings lots of sun and fun at the seaside :)

  3. Some lovely happy pictures of Mr A having a great time at the beach - and it was sunny!!! The beach is a favourite with my family as well, we grab out boards, suits and a picnic and happily spend a day there. I hope your laptop returns soon and thanks for sharing with Country Kids.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by - yes ever since I was very young I have loved the beach - growing up in South Africa we spent so much time at the seaside and I use to surf every weekend and for my school team, good times. You are so lucky being down in Cornwall with a lot of beaches to choose from :)

  4. Oh what beautiful pictures Mr A is just gorgeous. The beach is a wonderful day out, even better when the crowds aren't there. I bet you'll have many days on that beach x
