Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!
We had a really lovely evening making the most of where we live on Thursday last week.
Rhys’ cub pack arranged to have their meeting at the beach. So Nerys and I decided to tag along and have some fun too.
We walked down through Singleton park and dropped Rhys with his pack once we got onto the beach. Then Nerys and I headed straight to the water for a paddle.
The timing was perfect, with the tide being almost completely in. So we splashed around in the water for a while, before heading off for a walk along the beach.
We walked along to Victoria Park so Nerys could have a play in the recently refurbished play area.
I hadn’t actually been since it was redone, and was really impressed with how it all looks. There’s 2 climbing frames with slides, 2 sets of swings, a tyre swing, a roundabout, a trampoline, and a really fun bouncy see-saw.
There was even a twister mat painted on to the floor and a spinner attached to the wall so you can play a few games of that if you get bored with the swings and things!
Nerys had a great time in the park, and almost had to be dragged away so we could back along the beach in time to meet Rhys at the end of his cubs session. He had spent a busy hour and a half having a blast digging holes and playing in the sand and was covered from head to toe by the time we found him.
We had planned to walk back home again but, honestly, I was quite relieved when the rain clouds started to close in and Steve phoned offering to come and pick us all up. It is only a 20/30 minute walk back from the beach to our house, but it’s all uphill and can be a bit of a slog after a few hours playing in the sea air!
I think we’ll be spending a few more evenings at the beach during the summer holidays though, it was such a lovely way to end the day.
