We made time to get to the beach a couple of times over the Easter holidays – and had so much fun.
First trip was to Seacliff which is one of our favourites. Unusually for around here you have to pay £2 to get to the beach – access is down a private road. This seems to put people off so it’s generally quiet even on a lovely day. Like this::
Islay made tracks in the sand with her ‘tail’::
We could see Tantallon Castle – another of our favourite places to visit::
We visited the tiny little harbour::
We looked at the seaweed::
Next beach visit we actually spent most of the time next to the beach rather than on it – in the woods and dunes at Yellowcraigs.
We tried to get some good photos of all the children together – they tried very hard not to grimace but I’m not sure there was much success::
I think we need to go back to catching them unawares!
We took the kelly kettle and once we’d had enough running around and pulling faces we climbed the little hill and made some hot chocolate::
And the views up there were just lovely. This is Fidra::
John and the kids had lots more trips like this, while I tried not to look at the sun pouring into the office, and hopefully there’s plenty more to come in the next few weeks.
