Frost, Crocus and The Beach

16 Feb

1  We woke to a clear, bright and frosty morning – no rain!

2    In fact, it has been a glorious day with sun that warmed us up, encouraged the crocuses to open right up and encouraged lots of families to go to the beach to play. Our closest beach and one of our favourites has been stripped of its sand by the relentless storms of this winter.  I have known this beach for over forty years and have never seen it like this before. We hope that over the next few months the tides bring back all our soft, golden sand. However, the Grandchildren dug channels and redirected the streams and made dams and were happiness personified in the delight they showed playing by the sea!

    It was so lovely to see the sun on Sunday, such a shame re the coast line 🙁 as you say, hopefully the sea will replace what it has taken. Love to see the children out enjoying themselves. x

    Every picture you post is always gorgeous. But the favorites are the children.

    Children find joy in everything…and then we find joy in them!
