Summer has finally arrived! After making a brief appearance and then leaving only to let winter back - it is here!
It was a sweltering 34 deg. yesterday so we went down to St.James beach for the afternoon with the Carters. (This picture is especially for all those readers from the North i.e. Bev and Dottie who may not have seen blue sky for a while!!)
Apart from a "minor"(!) altercation between Bryce an Niave over a collection of shells and other treasures in a particular bucket - it was a lovely afternoon.
Abigail could not believe her ears when I fetched her from school and said "we're going to the beach"! She has been wanting a beach outing for ages. She absolutely loved swimming in the huge tidal pool - much to my distress!
She is surounded by a lot of water!!
Niave loved being free to explore - she's an explorer for sure. I was glad I had chosen a bright pink costume for her as I was able to keep track of her as wandered from 1 side of the beach to the other completely unfazed by the fact that she was very far away from me.
She had a ball!
Like a little mountain goat!
Gazing intently at some creature or other!
They had a really good time.
This morning Abigail wanted to know "can we go to the beach today?"!!! Oh dear, I see a pattern emerging here!!
