Seaside at Sunset

Summer seems to have finally come to the British Isles and we are enjoying some glorious weather at the moment. In the spirit of 'make hay while the sun shines' we headed to the North Wales coast on Saturday. We always aim to get there late in the day for two main reasons. Firstly it is much cooler so you don't have to worry about the children burning to a crisp (not to mention the fact that I hate being hot!). Secondly, it is always much quieter as we usually arrive when everyone else is leaving. Not being a fan of crowds, this arrangement suits me down to the ground. Having said that, we set a new record on Saturday by not arriving at the beach until after seven in the evening. It was beautiful! There was hardly anyone else around and it was still warm, but not too warm. We had our picnic as soon as we arrived and then just played on the beach until after ten. It was still light when we left with three tired but happy Podlings in the back of the car.

Farewell sandcastle!

Only you could get to the beach that late! Still, if you'd been earlier you wouldn't have seen that amazing sunset. I miss the beaches of North Wales!
