Rye Nature Reserve, Winchelsea Beach & Foxes

We were really lucky today with the weather (I here it was heavy rain at home) we had blue skies, no rain but a bit blustery! So we decided to go for another swim this morning, must make an effort to take them swimming more when we get home. I think we got into the habit of not going frequently when they were little because it would have been impossible due to how close they are in age and also with the adult to child ratio we would have had to bring an extra adult with us every time we went for a swim! Things are definitely getting easier as the children get older. After a little play in the playground we came back to the lodge and had lunch, I've realised how happy my children are when they are being fed this week. Moods sour quickly when a mealtime is delayed or a snack time is missed! Some things don't change with age then. We wrapped up and headed to Rye Nature Reserve, which as lovely as it was, was the windiest place on Earth!! We saw some wild rabbits, a Cormorant and a lot of workmen! The sea wall is being reinforced so we couldn't get down to the beach sadly. We had a lovely view of one of our favourite beaches though-Camber Sands. Will have to visit next time. We got back in the car and had a little drive down to Winchelsea Beach. It was deserted so the younger three very happily played chase with the waves-it was very sweet to watch-well until they started daring the sea to get closer! Cue the youngest too having a very wet welly, socks & jeans moment! So back to the lodge we came, dry clothes on, cup of tea for mummy and a quick game of monopoly deal. Bailey meanwhile, laid in his bed and caught up on his mobile time! He's having serious Internet/Xbox withdrawal but it's been lovely to have his attention this week and have him pretty much all to myself! Not sure how he's going to cope in a field in a tent with no wi-fi later in the year!! After we picked dad up from the office we had tea and dad put out some more dog food for the fox. We tried it Tuesday night and although we didn't see the fox, all the food went anyway. Our patience paid off tonight though when we got to see the fox cub eating all of the food wept out!!

  1. A fox! That's fantastic, you lucky lot! Really glad to hear you're having better weather than us, if it keeps up you won't need to go to a swimming pool to swim when you get home ;D

    1. Haha yes I see what you mean now-we seem to have come home to a jungle instead of a garden!
