My Captured Moment – evening swims

My Captured Moment – evening swims

With Summer only a couple months away, I’m sharing a shot of Tween and my nephew taken after an evening swim last summer.

I’ve got this one in a frame in my bathroom, to remind me of the laid back summers days we have here in sunny Devon and I’ve been waiting to share it once we were on the home straight to Summer time.


Memory making moments by Mum in a nutshell

We might not have a pizza delivery service or 5 screen cinema but we have the best swimming pool nature has to offer right on our doorstep –
and   nothing warms my heart more than seeing my boys and my    nephews enjoying the same summer evening swims which I loved.

My perfect summer captured moment.

      Thank you, my guys have a much more basic lifestyle at the moment but I’m sure they’ll make up for it in years to come!

    I love this pic and I love the beach at the end of the day. We would often sit there throwing pebbles into the sea, even though I could never get mine very far. Lovely shot xx

    What a fabulous picture! So lucky to be able to do that, I wish I lived near the sea. Somehow I don’t think the river Mersey has the same appeal… Haha! #mycapturedmoment x

      LOL! not even in a wetsuit. I used to visit West Kirby, isn’t that your way?

    That’s a fabulous photo, I can see why you have it framed. They are very lucky to grow up able to swim in the sea like this x #mycapturedmoment

      Thanks Sara. There’s nothing better than taking the boys down to the beach after school

    Oh how lovely. I’m so jealous of your ‘natural swimming pool’ – and it’s do wonderful you make the most of it with moments like these. Steph xxxx
