12th April 2010

So the school holidays started last week and so did the sickness, we hardly left the house all week, well when I say we I mean me, Gabe and Milo - Hub had to go to work . Although he did get a frantic call from moi last Wednesday to come home as I could not leave the bathroom !!!
Gabe has cold and conjunctivitis , Milo has a cold/cough and a viral infection with a rash ( which we were told may or may not be contagious so to keep away from other kids ) and me well the sick virus has gone but the cold and runny nose remains.

It got to the point where we just had to leave the house and the weather today has been absolutely glorious so we went to the beach.

We got there just after 10am and as you can see

plenty of space , no chance of passing the rash to anyone.


The tide was way way out so the boys were in their element exploring rock pools and just generally enjoying some freedom.

On the rock below there are reddish/black jelly like things which I think are sea anemones - anyone?

We didn't find any crabs but did have more luck with sea glass .

Hope you had as nice a day as we did .... roll on tomorrow .

Oh, that sea glass is just beautiful! You're so lucky to live close to the beach -- I hope it made you all well instantly!!!

What a shame that you have all been poorly. I am sure that good sea air will have you all ship shape in no time.

I never thought to take my children to the beach except when it was warm enough to swim. Now that they are 23 and 27 it may be too late. :>} It looks like a delightful outing, and a good way to get rid of the germs.

We were at the beach yesterday collecting sea glass too - probably just about a mile up the coast from you! But it was freezing so we didn't stay long!

Good to see you today!

So sorry to hear you've all been ill, we had the same start to the holidays (including the conjunctivitis, must be going around!) but I hope you all continue to feel better and get to spend some more time beach before it's back to school. Bx

Oh gosh - what a terrible time you have had of it! I hope you all are feeling on the mend. I can't believe how much sea glass you found! I hope the day out lifted your spirits.

A trip to the beach always blows the cobwebs away doesn't it? I'm convinced that all the ozone is a good healer as well. Hope everyone is feeling better soon.
