A lovely Sunday out at the beach
Off trots family Kennett, minus Ollie who had other things to do, to the beach.
We’d just been to a beach bar/restaurant – more of that on Islifearecipe of course, but here is the family fun.
Mary, Amy, Jude and I building castles on the beach, at East Coast Park Service Road – a little further down than normal, but well worth a venture. We took a bag with beach mats, balls, buckets and spades, and sat close enough to the restaurant that we could keep dipping back to get drinks and use the loos – a perfect location.
Here we go with some pictorial fun of the afternoon.
|My beautiful girl kicks it off with some sand-writing, although as soon as she started asking me how to spell stuff I stopped taking photos, ha ha.|
|In comes the Master Builder now. OK kids I am the Program Director, and I will now start allocating roles. Jude sit there and look cute, Amy start digging. Program Director is just going to have a quick sip of beer – back in a minute. Ha Ha. Joking.|
|We decided on building a sand castle in a moat with a bridge and then filling the moat with water, and maybe some decorations. That’s a damn fine idea. We started the construction project in earnest. All hands to the spades and buckets.|
|Put some back in to it son! He actually did a really great job. Well done Jude Jude.|
|“Dad I need a break. I’m tired. I think you are working me too hard,” said Jude.
“Get back to work!” said I.
|We’ve finished. The castle is done. The moat is done. We’ve decorated it with seaweeds. We even made some flags with seaweed. I think it looks absolutely great – good work kids. What a team.|
|The I looked at it again…
Maybe remove the drawer-bridge?
(Still bloody good though!)
|I think baby Jude realised too.
