Splashing in the Sea

Since we left Dungeness and arrived in Whistable, the weather has been phenomenal.  Hot, sunny, breezy, amazing.  (Sometimes too hot!)  One of these hot days was begging for a visit to the beach, so we headed to our favorite spot among the groynes and claimed a bit of beach. Warning:  many gratuitous photos of children exuding glee.

Charlie cannot stop climbing.  Must get him hiking!

The kids donned their swimming suits and we prepared to let them splash in the surf (this always makes me nervous, so I have to try very hard not to constantly run after them…).

Running back and forth in the shallow water was pretty much the best thing ever.

And again with the climbing.  He’s a monkey!

After wearing themselves out, lounging on daddy and having a bit of lunch seemed like a good idea.

Sweet owls in one of the harbour shops!  This is the same pattern we used to make Christmas owls when Mary Jeanne came to Whitstable for a visit.
