A Chilly Trip to the seaside

This time last year we were basking in glorious sunshine and no longer needed a winter coat. This year, the winter coat, hat, gloves and scarf are still firmly attached – but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun on the beach!

Spurred on by the quest to encourage my children to have a Natural Childhood and enjoy everything our surroundings have to offer, we wrapped up warm and headed for the beach to find it almost completely deserted.


It gave us more room to have an adventure though – we followed some tractor tracks to see where they went.  We found it digging a giant hole and decided it was looking for buried treasure!

Some of us even lay down to inspect the sand more closely!
We practiced writing our names in the sand!

We even had an unsuccessful attempt at skimming stones – partly as it was too rough and partly as there are very few stones on a sandy Bournemouth beach!

It may have been extremely cold and very blustery, but we certainly had fun!!
