We’ve been experiencing some really lovely heat the past few days in the UK. I know some may be struggling, finding it too hot. Was chatting with a Spanish friend last Sunday and she asked me if the heat is too much for me. I laughed and said, no! Where I come from, this is the norm and some days, especially in the summer, it can be even hotter. I asked her the same question. She laughed too, and gave me the same answer.
And what better way to enjoy the heat, but to go to the beach! I’ve mentioned this several times on the blog before that our go-to-beach is Widemouth Bay since it’s only about a ten-minute drive from where we live. This is where T and her best-friend F love to go and do …
And here they are, the two best-friends resting before having another go on the beach. It’s a very safe beach to visit with little ones, since there are always (especially during peak season) life guards on duty complete with speed boats ready to use in case of emergency.
The waves though can be a little bit harsh, but all the better for the body-boarders and surfers of course. It’s best to still keep a close eye on your little ones by being in the water with them too.
Towards the afternoon, we decided to pack up and head for the lovely interesting rock formations found on Widemouth bay. Apart from the long stretch of sand, those rocks and boulders is one of the reason why we love that beach. When you’re done playing in the sand and waves, there are other things to do like climb over rocks that have been around millions of years.
And there she goes …
Just look at how unique they are… It almost looks a face is etched on the rock.
Nature never ceases to amaze me.
And when you’re done marvelling over rock formations, one can always go exploring over rock pools too. This is one of T and her dad’s favourite activity to do on the beach. What better way to end a lovely day, by doing some exploring?
Have you been enjoying the heat too?
Or is it just a bit too much for you?
