(Goblin is 33 months)
Today was a beautiful day and we took a small 12 man foot ferry across the sea to an island opposite Nanny's house. Incredibly this is something I'd never done before, but its certainly something I'll do again. The island has a wonderful shoreline with sand, seashells, clay and flowers.
Goblin was in investigation heaven, and with no cars around it was safe to 'let him off the lead'. The skys were blue and there were tons of sailing boats around. When he did pause from running around and chasing the dog he looked at the clouds. "Look mummy a submarine!" - I love how his imagination is flourishing.
We spent a few hours on the Island, stopping for a picnic and watching some kites. But then the weather started to look foreboding. We heard thunder and saw rainclouds looming on the horizon.

Looks lovely.We went to the beach at West Wittering on Tuesday.The kids enjoyed it so much.ReplyDelete
I forgot you were over that way. That is where I grew up and we used to drive to West Wittering every summer when I was a teenager. I love it there. Maybe we will take Goblin (once he can swim!)Delete
What amazing pictures! I love that your little guy is such an explorer. Such wonderful memories you all with have...thanks so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
Gina I love that he is a little explorer too. He is so curious and I really want to foster that as long as i canDelete
Great pictures I love all that you did!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a blissful day :-) Goblin would have been in his element I imagine. Your photos are really beautiful. Our days are already warming up and we are seeing daffodils and buds coming on the trees - not long now until we can run around in t-shirts again.ReplyDelete
This is the first and only week of summer so far that its been warm enough (and we still got caught in the rain!)Delete
What lovely, lovely photos...felt like we could have been there with you enjoying those shells and sunshine! I just adore that first photo of Goblin!ReplyDelete
