Just hanging around, watching the surf

Just hanging around, watching the surf

There’s nothing more refreshing than a walk along the promenade. Tween, Baby R and I did the tourist thing today and ate chips on the seafront, I’m in the throws of a healthy eating splurge at the moment so it was my naughty moment but they’re vegetables so they count right?

I took this snap while we stopped to watch the waves and take in the fresh sea air, while Tween taunted me with his railings balance tricks.

    What a lovely photo and how lovely to live near the sea and be able to do this whenever. I wish we did! xx

      Thank you, we are super lucky. Going to get busy this weekend though.

    I would love to live nearer the sea-perfect place to get fresh air and blow away the cobwebs. Chips by the sea front is my idea of heaven too πŸ™‚

    It looks like a fab way to spend an afternoon. My Tweens would’ve been doing much the same if not worse, there’s just something about railings next to a drop that they can’t ignore. The chips on the seafront sounds like a great idea! Popping in from Magic Moments.
