Have I mentioned before that I love living by the sea?!
We are so close that on a stormy day we can hear the waves break and smell the salty water as it crashes on to the beach. Not much in life is better than opening the windows on a sunny day knowing that a few minutes walk will have you dipping your toes in the sand and strolling along without a care in the world.
One of our favourite times to spend as a family is when the tide is super low, like almost to the end of the pier low.
We were lucky enough to have one of these low tides the other afternoon.
Whilst I was strolling along, getting my toes wet the boys were being their usual crazy selves.
Exploring rock pools.
Having a cuddle.
Playing with an abandoned spade.
Being amazed by their shadows.
Stepping on the ripples in the sand.
And finding hearts in the sand before the tide came back in.
By the time the tide started to turn we had two very tired and soggy boys, apparently they could only get home via piggy back as their legs were sleepy!
I do love how the beach tuckers them out, they slept so well!
