If you have read my previous holiday posts you will know that we always aim to have a beach within reach of our holiday destination, a holiday isn't complete for the Little Ones without sandy toes, paddling and ice creams, in fact come to think of it, I don't think we have been anywhere in the last 4 years without a beach!
After setting off early and munching breakfast in the car we had missed the bulk of the holiday traffic, by late morning we had arrived at our destination and after a quick stop for brunch as we were all starving, we headed straight for the rockpools while we waited for the allotted arrival time at our accommodation.
We made our way down to the beach with buckets and spades and two excited children, it was one of those small harbour beaches with that kind of dirty shingly sand and lots of rocks and rock pools so we avoided the sand and started exploring the rock pools.
There was lots of paddling and digging up of stones too, Little 2 spent ages filling her bucket with muddy shingle, emptying it and doing it again.
In no time at all it was time to leave and we bundled two soggy happy little children into the car, both asking if we could come back again tomorrow. Maybe not tomorrow but there will be several more beach trips this holiday and that's for sure. What a lovely way to spend the first afternoon of our holiday.
