A Country Kid’s Post: Beachcombing on an Autumn Day

It was a beautiful late autumn day, not wanting to waste it, our little family decided to head for the beach in Polzeath after little T’s ballet a few Saturdays ago.

When we arrived, there were people getting ready to go in the water in their wet suits, there were dog-walkers around, and people, who were like us, not wanting to waste the lovely day indoors. Here, let me share some photos with you:

It was a lovely day of walking on the beach and just breathing in the cold autumn air.  T and the Historian had fun doing a bit of beach combing and exploring the few caves dotted around the cliffs of Polzeath.  We ended the visit with ice-cream – as it should always be.

A breath of fresh air on the beach, with lovely weather, ending it with ice-cream, what more can we ask?  Bring it on winter, we’re ready for you!

Have you visited the beach lately?

Here’s a little shortie of what the day was like…


    • We love the beach in all seasons, though admittedly haven’t visited as much as we can since my husband has been really busy lately. But yes, it’s actually lovely even in the winter, provided of course that everyone is bundled nicely 🙂

    What a wonderful way to spend the day, it’s great that you all managed to escape the everyday hustle and bustle to explore the great outdoors with the family. I’ve not been to the beach for a couple of weeks now and I’m definitely starting to feel the need to get back there and explore sand a bit more. Polzeath’s such a lovely beach to explore too, it’s clear Little T loved exploring with you and The Historian.

    Thanks for sharing with me on #CountryKids.

    • It was definitely lovely to be out and about. We don’t really get to do much outdoor stuff especially since my husband has (and is still) so busy 🙂

  2. Aw this sounds like the perfect way to spend an afternoon. The beach looks gorgeous!

    Haven’t been to Polzeath for years, it looks stunning in the autumn light. You’ve inspired me to add it to my list when we next visit my sister in Perranporth.

    • Same here. I imagine though when the sea is rough, it can get a bit scary to live so close to it. x

    Definitely a lovely way to spend Autumn me thinks! I agree with Rachel I love pink and the pink house looks like an amazing place to be in!

  6. Your photos are truly beautiful. We love visiting the beach but don’t go enough. I always feel peaceful there

    Gorgeous photos. Funnily enough I suggested the beach today but hubby wasn’t up for it. Perhaps I’ll be able to convince him next week lol x

    This is the second post I’ve seen by the beach in winter, which I hadn’t really thought about doing. But the photos look amazing and it must be bracing and a real opportunity to blow out the cobwebs, down by the beach.

    • It was surprisingly a mild day, not too cold 🙂 But I bet the water was freezing!

  13. I do miss not living by the beach. A stroll along the beach with an ice-cream whats not to love.

  14. Nothing beats a fresh winters day spent on the beach – best outdoor adventure for Winter. Love this
