As soon as we moved to Dorset we fell in love with the beach. We visited when the sun was shining and the beach was full and we visited with our dinner as the sun was setting. If we needed to escape our little flat we packed up the car and drove to the beach to walk across the sand and dip out toes in the sea.
When C was pregnant we talked about our plans to raise a little beach lover. A child that loved to spend time at the beach and got involved with water sports. We’d watch the surfers and imagine our future child catching the waves with them.
Eventually when it came to M’s first experience on the beach, he hated it. Sand caused him to cry and our time spent on the beach during his first year was reduced. So as the weather brightened this month, we decided to give the beach another shot at impressing our son. It was a success, our dreams of M growing into a little beach lover can still be fulfilled if it’s what he chooses. We would love his adventurous streak to grow in whichever direction pleases him.
Now we know he doesn’t hate the beach we will be spending a lot more time there this year. We still have to introduce him to dinner on the beach as the sun sets, we may even stretch to a beach BBQ.
This months photos were taken using my fab remote C got me for my birthday. M was so curious about the camera going off on it’s own that he decided to investigate half way through taking photos. I loved the outtake it provided.
