Oh Happy Day

Yesterday , as a family, we had an awful day. There wasn't any particular reason why, but we were all grumpy, snappy and basically annoying each other. This morning hub and I decided we were not going to have another snappy Saturday so we bundled the boys in the car and set off for here.
Getting out of the car we were met by a rather friendly pony, although h
e did try and knock me off the stile as I was climbing over it !



On the other side of the pony's field we walked through the dunes and were met by these gorgeous views







could you imagine living this close to the beach?



Milo made sand angels



while G played with the ball



and rolled around a lot



but I think the most fun was doing this







dune jumping of course .



We all had a ball, and what made today even more special is that both me and hub have some excellent childhood memories of this place . Hopefully the boys will too.

I must say that it's difficulat to beat a winter beach walk. You could almost believe you were the only people on earth. Beautiful photos. :)

I think it is the time of year for the grumps, everyone is already fed up with the cold weather and staying couped up indoors. Getting out was the best medicine, and what a wonderful place to get out to, looks like you all had a super time.

The views alone are enough to raise your spirits. I would love to go dune jumping and feel the salty sea hair in my mouth and on my hair. It's been years since I did anything like that!

You can't beat sea air and beautiful views. It's hard to be a grump in such a beautiful place!

Good for you - what fun for everyone! Know that horrid, snappy, cooped up feeling all too well, especially at this time of year. Luckily it can sorted out so quickly in a setting like that, what a place!

Hope you've blown all your cobwebs off.
Enjoy your week.
