Beach life

The sun is continuing to shine on our little corner of the UK and we have been making the most of it by getting down to the beach after school and at the weekends. When the tide is out the beaches are a lovely, wide open expanse of sand. Perfect for nice long walks from bay to bay. I have no idea what my son is doing in that photo, inspecting for mini-beasts I expect.

We like to take the dog on big open beaches because she has an embarrasing tendancy to wee on sandcastles! Oops, lol. I don't know why she does it but she makes a beeline for them and likes to make her mark. Usually with me yelling and screaming at her, then apologising like mad to the irate parents. Maybe that is why I usually only take her with us in the winter when there are no sandcastles in weeing distance. What a little darling she is.

I am continuing my hunt for beach glass but no avail. I fear it will be a long time before I have enough to do anything crafty with it. Maybe I should widen my hunt to interesting washed up ceramics. Then no doubt I will be looking on You Tube for tutorials on mosiac or other things to do with fragments of pottery and beach glass.

I've got a school fete tomorrow evening and I hope that the weather is kind to me. Please wish me luck!
