Beach Trips | The Ordinary Moments 2016

I am quite lucky to live 30 minutes away from the beach. I always feel my happiest when I am sat on a blanket on the beach and in the summer we do try and make the most of it being so close, but with it being a popular destination it tends to get busy very quickly.

G’s school friends moved away to the beach and although they are greatly missed, it gives us the excuse to go and visit them and the beach. They live a little further down from the main seaside and it was my first time going to this specific part of the beach, and it most definitely won’t be my last. With blue skies and sunshine it was a perfect day to have a stroll.


We donned our wellies, hats, scarfs, earmuffs and gloves and took the two minute walk from their house and arrived to a stretch of muddy sand. In the summer it will be glorious but as it was winter it was all a bit sluggish. There was quite a group of us and we literally let the kids run wild. They went wadding in the sea thanks to the welly boots and we hunted for shells. H managed to bring back a collection of stones, which I may of left on the wall.


With rosy cheeks and cold noses we headed back for a hot cup of tea and cake. It was a lovely day and was a great way to finish the half term on.

With winter hopefully slowly fading I expect to be making plenty more trips to the beach this coming spring/summer!

    I love being by the sea and there’s a bit part of me that would love to live by it one day. Like you say, there’s something so relaxing about being by the water. Looks like you had a lovely day yesterday, the photos look gorgeous, although I’m sure it was still a bit chilly! xx

    Oh you really are lucky to live so close to the beach! We are at least an hours drive! The seaside is my favourite place. xx

      Definitely lucky, although it can sometimes take well over an hour to get there in the height of summer!

    That looks like a lovely day. We are also lucky enough to love very close to the beach but shamefully we haven’t been down there at all this winter. Seeing this has made my mind up to get down there very soon!

    Oh what a lovely way to spend the afternoon! I grew up on the coast and I do miss the salty air and the big horizons now I’m inland.

I cannot believe we are at Friday already. Half term has sped by, and a normal school week never goes...
