After battling severe tonsillitis and then ending up in hospital on IV antibiotics to fight a suspected kidney infection, there haven’t been many adventures for us recently.
To cheer myself up I have decided to do a throwback post to a beach adventure we had during half term.
Enough stones to keep little man happy and all wrapped up in an all in one and wellies this was an opportunity to really explore, pause and take in our surroundings.
There’s something about the beach as a backdrop. The sea air, the exhilaration of nature at its finest.
At one point little man just wanted to sit down at one point and take a moment. It was a welcome pause, a chance to spark joy taking in the vastness of where we were.
And of course we had to spend some time throwing a few of those stones!
I am really looking forward to being back to full strength and able to get out and about again.
Half term is such a joy, being a teacher means early mornings, late evenings and very short moments with little man during the week.
Half term is a week of unadulterated fun and family time and nothing beats it.
A trip to Exeter to stay with friends provided the perfect opportunity for some beach exploration. Is it just me or is there something magical about the sea?
Wellies are by far my favourite item to always have to hand for little man – every opportunity to jump in puddles should be taken in my book!
And the all important paddle can still happen pre-warm weather with no worrying about wet socks or trousers!
The seaside also provides the perfect backdrop for photos that speak of a moment and tell a story. This is us, embracing life, creating experiences that spark joy. This is my wild one.
