The Kids have gone back to school today. They had an Inset day yesterday - or an insect day as Elizabeth calls it! The holidays were lovely but I feel ready to get back in to a bit of routine now and I know they were really starting to miss their friends.
These pictures are from the weekend. We walked along the beach after the tide had gone out to see what damage had been done in the overnight storm and to see what treasures could be found. The path along the seafront had nearly merged into beach with the amount of shingle washed up and this bench was now a perfect height for the kids. We sadly saw lots of starfish of jelly like sea creatures washed up too - I've never seen a starfish here before!
We came home with bags full of driftwood, a paddle and some fishing floats. I'm hoping to make a little beachy area in the garden in the Spring so they will be perfect! I had to leave behind a very lovely railway sleeper that had been washed up as it was far too heavy - it would have been perfect though!
I was also quite excited to find this little wooden acorn shape, wondering what it could possibly be. But then it occurred to me its probably just one of those hanging air fresheners or something - still pretty cute though!
