Beach Life

Hey Readers,

The other weekend we went out for a day to the seaside, which is supper exciting as we haven’t been to the coast for along time, so both my boys were super happy at the prospect.

We went to Dorset as it wasn’t the closest and it had sandy beach as my hubby does not like stoney beach, lol.

We went to a local coastal town called Lymington which was  lovely quaint town. We popped into a lovely little tea room and had some delicious sandwiches.

Then we decided to have a stroll around the town and take it easy. We obviously we had to have ice-cream as it is the law when you away.  We came to a real cool decorated ice-cream parlour, I just love the fun balloon lights.

Their ice-cream is one of the best we have ever had. My sons love bubblegum ice-cream natural but when they saw the bubble gum ice-cream cone that blew their tiny little minds.

It was lovely to just take our time and look around at the shops. We even got to see a gold letter box, which both my boys loved.

As you can see there was plenty of visual features to see. I am so easily distracted by quirky buildings and what not.

We then ventured on to a boat yard, and that smell takes me to so many happy memories of vising the sea side. There were seagulls and then general hustle and bustle of day to day life of fisherman and all that kind of thing.

The man in the above photo attracted my son’s attention as he was doing a bit of water-colouring.

We then travelled to a local beach (Avon) as you can’t beat a visit to the beach. Even though it looked overcast it was pleasantly warm.

My boys enjoyed jumping on the waves and building sandcastles. Luckily we didn’t visit during the heatwave period as it was fairly quite which I enjoy more as there is less noise and chaos about. (yeah I know anti-social but true).

Sadly, we only stopped for the day but it was a good day none the less and both boys returned home full of happy memories.

Reasons to celebrate woods

Hey readers,

I love forests and they just beautiful scenic places to explore, especially with children. Let me tell you why…

woods 1

Being around in a space just full of trees and walking around is magical. I find it so calming to see all the different trees that nature has produced.

Walking around is really good for the lungs, as it feels fresh and breathable.

Woodlands are a great place to escape form it all, it feels like you are in a different universe where other people are not around if that makes sense.

Taking kids to forest is  brilliant  in creating fun memories and what more they have a blast running freely around the trees.

They are free to explore, which makes it a fab way to get out and explore. You can take a picnic and even a natural sheet for a fun packed day out.

Walking is great for the soul where better than the tranquillity of woods.

Sometimes, you can find disregarded branches which is a suburb way to make dens and helps build teamwork if you do it with children. It is a great way of teaching children how to plan and listen to one another.

Woods often are found to have streams close by so it is easy to take advantage and have fun doing pooh sticks.

Of course you can go out in the rain with waterproofs and still have a brilliant time in the woods. You can find some cracking puddles and who doesn’t like playing with mud when they are little.

You can find all sorts of wildlife and going down to your woods a perfect opportunity to close to wildlife.

Finally, woods are suburb location to use for photography and capturing nature stunningly. It is also great location for fashion bloggers to use the natural setting to great a certain atmosphere within the photo.

What do you think about woods? What do you like to do in woods?
