Beach baby, beach baby, there on the sand. Oh yes, another fantastic day on the beach. We were so lucky that we woke up once more to bright blue sky and lots of sunshine. Today was colder than it has been for ages but that did not deter the beach babies from choosing to spend their last day together on the beach, digging.
Fruit, yogurt and cereal for breakfast today. Greek yogurt, mango, peach and Jordan’s Country Crisp with raisins for me.
Then off to my favourite beach which is only a 15 minute drive from our beach house.
to hunt for crabs,
or sharks! How we love our hunter-gatherers 🙂
To climb the cliffs,
to play in the cliffs,
to create giant ladies with seaweed hair and shell necklaces, and then hold her hand (so cute)
or make a life sized “water man”,
or make a giant sandcastle with a moat (Mummy helped a lot).
How we loved the virtually private beach.
Eventually the grown ups became too cold so it was time for lunch.
A diet-disaster! Brie and bacon panini at Morelli‘s in Broadstairs,
Followed by ice-cream. Morelli’s make their own ‘Gelato’ and I had one scoop of caramel in a small cone. It was delicious.
It has been a total pleasure and a privilege to spend 3 days with my beautiful God-daughter and I enjoyed every minute of it all.
Alas, all good things come to an end and unfortunately it was time for our fab friends to head home to Leicestershire. One last photo call with the dogs.
Come back and see us soon.
Back at home we had a quick and simple supper; falafel, humous, lettuce and some wonderfully juicy tomatoes with a small blob of mayonnaise.
For some inexplicable reason, I then pigged out on a slice of toast with marmalade and a hot chocolate :-(. I am so dumb sometimes! I don’t even know why I had that as I wasn’t feeling stressed which is my usual excuse. I felt really happy and just a little tired. I will not dwell on that little slip but will make much more effort tomorrow.
Tomorrow’s blog will be all about food and I will make sure I photograph everything I eat and it will all be healthy.
