We are very fortunate here in Melbourne to have a very large bay and lots of beautiful quiet beaches to visit. I took the Big Boys to a section at Seaford where there is a small pier and gentle water with sandbars.
You have to climb a small dune/hill to get to the beach but when they both got to the top ahead of me of course, they both stopped dead in their tracks and stared at all the blue sky and sea. I don't think they could believe that what they were looking at was real! It was a moment I will never forget!
Then they were off and after a quick run up and down the pier they launched into the happiest sand castle making I think I can ever remember. Big Boy often stopped to go 'paddling' as he called his dips and Big Boy Too shifted so much sea water with his bucket into their moat I am sure the water level lowered by a centimetre or two! After two hours of non-stop fun I had to play the bad guy and drag them home. It was warming up and the beach was beginning to fill up. But going to the beach was a winner and now ranks up there with going on Puffing Billy!
Thanks for dropping by! Irene x
