Tag: bank holiday weekend

Where has the sunshine gone?

The sun has gone, temporarily I hope –  instead we’ve been having grey clouds and rain.  Then again, what am I saying?  This won’t be England without the grey and rain, especially on a bank holiday weekend.  It always rains.

However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t go on the beach in this weather!  Just make sure you have a place to shelter once the rain starts pouring.

This is Crooklets beach in Bude.  It’s not as lovely as the other beaches here in Cornwall, but what I like about this place is that it has a playground near the beach and an American-style diner called… Rosie’s Kitchen and another place that serves delicious but-a-bit-pricey soup that tastes a bit like the traditional Scottish soup, Cullen Skink.

Crooklets also has rock-pools the kids can explore, as seen above: Little T and F with their buckets and spade.

And of course, they made sandcastles, or what looked more like two towers.

His and hers.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside… even in the grey.

What’s the weather like on your side of the world?
