Living arrows 2017 – 6/52

This past weekend has been all about little trips to the beach.

My brother-in-law is visiting from the Isle of Man with his wife and daughter, so we’ve been making the most of any windows of sunshine and heading out for a run on the beach in Swansea bay.

Our niece is a month older than Nerys, and it’s so amazing to watch the two of them together.

They only see each other a few times a year, but they get on so well when they are together.

And they’ve been really enjoying these little trips to the beach together.  Along with Rhys, they’ve built sandcastles and run away from waves and generally just enjoyed being together.

So this week’s Living Arrows photos are from one of our Swansea bay outings.


I love this photo of Nerys.  The hint of cheekiness in her eyes, and her slightly windswept hair.  One day we’ll give in and take her for a haircut, but for now we both just love her hair the way it is.  With it’s random curls and crazy double crown.


As for Rhys, well he really does need a haircut!  His hair seems to suddenly grow overnight.

One day it’s fine, the next it’s right in his eyes and round his ears.  So that’s a job for the next week or two!

I love this photo of him too though.  Steve was stood behind me making him laugh so I could get this picture, and I just love his expression.

I can’t help but smile along with him when I look at it!

      Sometimes I think I prefer it in the cooler months, it’s much quieter! x

    Gorgeous smiles! There’s nothing like a trip to the beach to bring out all the smiles. I love the windswept hair, it’s gorgeous! Max needs a haircut too, I just need to get myself organised and take him but it’s always such an ordeal. #livingarrows

      It’s ok with us now that Rhys is a bit older but he used to really hate having his hair cut. I stopped worrying about it after a while, and just trimmed it a bit myself when it got in his eyes! x

    Winter beach trips are the best, although I’ve never been to Swansea Bay before, i’ll have to look it up #LivingArrows

      We really like Swansea bay, and it’s so convenient for us. There are some really stunning beaches a little bit further along the coast though, on the Gower. x

    They’re both lovely photos – it looks like you had beautiful blue skies at the beach too. I know what you mean about the hair too – Toby’s hair can seem fine one day then I look at him the next and he can hardly see for it in his eyes! #LivingArrows

      We got really lucky with the blue skies! It’s so funny with their hair isn’t it, how it seems to grow into their eyes overnight! x
