And Just Like That…. Half-term Break is Over

Photo above is what the weather is currently like at the moment.  We are enveloped in a sea of mist that really looks like a set in a movie based in one of Stephen King’s novels.  I’m just really glad that the weather wasn’t like this during the half-term break.  We had a few days of glorious sunshine it almost felt like spring has sprung.

February half-term is only a week and we didn’t really do or go anywhere special but at least we managed to visit the beach a couple of times.

Went to Widemouth, our go-to-beach when we want an easy stroll on the beach.  I’ve mentioned this beach a lot of times on this blog, maybe because it’s such a short drive from where we live.  It has a nice long stretch of beach even when it’s high tide.  Perfect for a lovely stroll to blow off some cobwebs.

Was it cold?  Yes, it was.  But we were dressed for it.  After all, winter isn’t really gone yet.  We stayed till it started to rain before heading back home again.

Do you like going to the beach in the cold?

  1. Looks like you had some lovely beach days. I can’t believe it’s all over it went by in a flash didn’t it?

    • Yes it happened so quickly thank goodness Easter break is just around the corner 🙂

  2. We love the beach when it’s cold and you are lucky to live so near to the coast! We visited a couple of beaches on our tour of Northern Ireland last week. It was bliss beachcombing x

    • Same here. We had lovely weather over the break and then it went bad again… Then now the sun is out again! 🙂

  3. Half terms and holidays always seem to go so fast dont they – a bit like weekends I find! Looks like you had fun in the fresh air – love the beach pics.

  4. I love going to the beach in any weather. That half term sun looks fab and you made the most of it. I recently experienced my first ever and probably last beach blizzard in Northumberland! #CountryKids

  5. Widemouth is still a beach I haven’t properly explored with the kids, with it being a little further away it feels like it needs a little more planning. Farmer Amber grew up with this has her go-to beach though and says the boys would love surfing there. T looks like she loved exploring the beach, the shots of her running around make it clear she loves getting out in the fresh air.

    Thanks for sharing your beach adventure on #CountryKids.

    • Yes, your boys will definitely love surfing here. You guys should come and visit one of these days. It really isn’t that far 😉 x

  6. We have had many days out at the beack this half term – I actually think I prefer a Winter beach than a Summer one. Gorgeous pictures #countrykids

    • Thanks. Same here. Although I’m not sure I prefer the beach in the winter than warmer weather 🙂

  7. Going to a beach in winter is always fun…February is usually a great month to visit beaches with family. Very sweet post. Thanks for sharing this informative post.

  8. I can see the difference with the weather. I am always so careful when its foggy as I feel like yes I am in a horror movie!

    We do love to go to the beach whatever the weather all the more when its cold because the beach is emptier. We can do what ever we want as long as (like you) we are wearing the right gear =)
