The start of the summer holidays hit us like a bus and we've all struggled to adjust to a new routine, so last Friday we got up had breakfast then headed out the door.
No time for tantrums or any sort of moaning, we walked from our house down to the beach.
As it was early the beach was pretty empty and the tourists were all still in their holiday homes.
So it seemed we had the whole stretch to ourselves.
The boys had a paddle in the sea and enjoyed jumping over the waves, once they decided they were too wet and started getting a bit grumpy I decided to treat them all to morning ice creams.
A bit of a sugar pick me up and a run along the sea they were happy to take on my challenge of finding the smallest shells they could possibly see!
That kept them busy well over 2 hours.
Here are a couple of photos from our morning.
