A little school holiday fun sees us baking chocolate muffins and heading to a friend's place. A couple of days of beaches, buckets, fish and sea snails.
Of exploring, playing, walking and talking.
The kids have laughed lots, argued a little and imagined over and over again. I love listening as the sand banks become their homes and the seaweed their gardens.
I'm watching the transformation of Belle who's changed from a child into a teenager in a few short months. No longer part of the games but exploring and photographing wonders. She's always around but just a little separate as was Buddy today, tired from a long drive.
It's lovely to have a change of environment. A five minute solitary walk amongst rocks and water did wonders for my soul. I was frustrated to be taking photos with an iPad! I was given a camera for my last birthday and I'm learning how to use it but sadly my computer just died. I need to fix it so I can load my photos and continue to play with the basics of photography. The beach is a photographers dream.
