A Day At The Beach

A Day At The Beach

I have major holiday envy at the moment!

My dad is on a Greek Island at this very moment, it’s one we used to go to all the time when we were little and every day he is sending me photos which is bringing back all my holiday memories and making me desperate to be there.

I’m so jealous!!!

Luckily we don’t have too long to wait until our holiday though and at least the weather has been nice here lately which helps.

On Saturday we decided to drive down to the coast, luckily we don’t live too far away and can be there in just under an hour.

We also ended up on a beach with hardly anyone on it which is always a bonus.


It made me feel all emotional when I spotted how me and Cherry have the same foot lifted in the photo below.



The kids absolutely loved it and spent about two hours digging in the sand.


I love the way Cherry is watching Tiger with suspicion in this photo, he had just been flinging sand everywhere!




Tiger looking his usual grumpy self!


Then we finished off the day with ice-cream.

    I’m so jealous that you live so close to the sea. I love the photo of you two walking to the sea together, and the one of them cuddling! So sweet 🙂 xx

    Sounds absolutely perfect. The photos all look stunning too. Did you use a tripod or have someone else with you? Glad you got to go to the beach and enjoy some quality time with no one else there. Always magical. That foot lifted photo is a framer. Definitely amazing.

    Lovely photos! I can’t wait to be able to drive and just disappear to the beach for the day/evening x

  6. Oooo which beach is that, it’s lovely! Your kids look so happy Jess, what a cheery post.

  7. What a lovely day, and how lucky that the beach was deserted!! Bet that made it feel all the more special. As everyone has agreed, the photo of the two of you with the same foot lifted is just beautiful. (Plus I really like your shorts!!!!) X

    You make a visit to the beach with two ‘babies’ seem effortless. Lovely photos and I adore Tiger’s moody face! x

  9. When everything’s just right, you just can’t beat a day at the beach. It always makes me feel so much better (must be all that fresh air) because it’s invigorating and calming all at the same time. I always think these are the sort of photos the kids will really cherish too.

    Oh what a lovely way to spend the day (especially the ice cream) and I LOVE the picture of you and Cherry standing the same, it’s definitely one to frame!

    What a perfect and simple day and finishing it with ice-cream – can’t get any better. I know what you mean about holiday envy – everyone seems to be flying off to far flung destinations at the moment. Can’t wait to read about your upcoming holiday though

    Awww I’d love to be somewhere abroad right now but, when the weather is gorgeous here, the beach is such an amazing day out. Lovely photos.

  13. We love summer days at the beach and ice cream is pretty obligatory!
