Today the sun was out and it was hot, hot, hot. So where's the best place to go when there's good weather? Down to the beach of course. No crafting was done today, I'm not keen on sandy sewing, so it was left at home.
We picked up our buckets and spades and walked to the sea front.
The tide was out and it was busy, little groups of people dotted all over the sand.
We chose our spot and got stuck into some serious sand castle building.
Our beach has lovely golden sand and is dog free at one end so no nasty surprises as you dig.
The girls had a whale of a time building, and an even better time knocking them all down by jumping on, and over the castles. All but one castle was built and destroyed. The 4th was fiercely guarded until the end of the day, when it too was annihilated by a jumping blond beast.
We had the obligatory paddle but weren't brave enough to go in any deeper.
We had the best afternoon in a long while and came home all sandy,sun kissed, and tired.
I love my home town, but it's even better when the sun shines!
