Down in the Harbour

Little T in her rain gear.

We had another close friend visit us last week and on the sunday before she left, in spite of the rain forecast and very grey day, we decided to go down in the harbour especially since the tide was low.

The horses were there again.

And this time, the blow-hole was puffing away the waves as it entered the little cave.

As soon as we reached the harbour, little T as always wanted to play in the sand.

Good thing there was enough beach for her to play in.

This is little T’s favourite playground.

After all why not?  For them, it’s like an enormous sandpit!

And then little T had a brilliant idea …

She wanted to eat ice-cream!

Then back up again…

Stopped by the horses with Aunty S.

The it was time to head off for our sunday lunch.

Everywhere was grey, what a contrast from these photos taken just a few weeks ago.

And #PoCoLo.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!

      Thanks! Yes, we sometimes have to constantly remind ourselves and not take things for granted (which we do a lot!) 🙂

  2. The Coffee Table Years

    Really atmospheric and moody. Love the enormous playground.

      And it’s great in the summer. Little T and her best friend chase each other around in their underwear! 🙂

  6. Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

    I just can’t believe that is all in your backyard! It’s amazing!

    • Dean B

      It is I guess… My husband and I constantly have to remind ourselves not to take the place for granted.

      • Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

        I know that we all say that we have so much in our own backyard that we can and should do – but no one has it like you do!

          • Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

            No, you don’t! Not at all! I was just reinforcing how blessed you were! I never once took your attitude as ungrateful!

          • Dean B

            No worries Kate. That was just me being melodramatic! x

    Oh Dean your pictures make it look like such an idyllic place to visit and go for walks!

    • Dean B

      It is indeed! 🙂 Though admittedly sometimes I miss the chaotic mess of the city… I guess its just a case of the grass is always greener!

    Even in the grey it’s still beautiful. I love how Little T always looks so purposeful 🙂
