Today the sun shone and the weather was dry. Felt like we hadn’t just knocked about our local beaches for too long. I made a picnic, packed the bubble wands and some felt tip pens. We spent the day nibbling, chasing bubbles and painting shells. Letters were wrote from mermaids to humans on stone slates and left for other children to find. Sea shells were decorated with butterfly’s and patterns. Today cost us nothing but time, and it was just beautiful family time together. As the waves crashed on the shore and the gulls cried out their songs of sorrow and joy, it felt great to be back!
