After a lovely breakfast outside, all 10 of us, we headed out to Croyde Bay. It was really warm and was a bit of a pain lugging everything on to the beach but gosh it was lovely! The views on the drive were beautiful, not that I got too look too much as driver but still! What could be better than clear blue skies, a sandy beach and a cool, blue sea? We had a little walk into the village to get some local cheese and fresh, still=warm=from-the-oven bread, Bailey and Piper had a freshly made pasty, (they both love pastry!) and we sat and ate before going back to the beach with a new bucket and spade. Lots of digging and splashing in the sea!
Hubby and Piper had a go at flying our new stunt kite but it broke within about 5 minutes! Such a shame as it was perfect kite flying weather!! May have to take it back and get a refund...
Ruben meanwhile was busy burying what started as just my feet and ended up with me being turned into a mermaid! Little R and Cordelia then came over and also wanted to be mermaids! Very sweet.Our friend Wes had a go at surfing and also took Cordelia for a go on the board, she loves water, but it did make me a little nervous!
Piper happily dug in the sand for ages and built herself a little boat, she let her little friend R have a go in it too.
