I must confess to feeling a bit of a fraud with the title of this post as the last 10 days have been anything but 'everyday ordinary'.
We are just back from a two week break in the very lovely Bude on the North Cornwall coast. Mum and Dad, David, Alison and Bobby and Lesley and Tom were all spending time down there too and it has been lovely to get to spend some real quality time together.
It has been especially lovely getting to see Bobby exploring the delights of the beach and all the wonder that it must bring to a nearly two year old, in all kinds of weather. We've made some really lovely memories that will last for a long old time and I will be sharing lots more details of what we got up to with you over the next few weeks.
For now ... here are the best bits of the last of September ...
Day 22 - It rained all day and, other than a quick trip to the supermarket for supplies we spent the day just chilling out. I managed to finish reading the second of my holiday reading books, which I really enjoyed.
Day 23 - It was another rainy morning and we all spent a couple of hours at David and Alison's cottage playing games and eating pizza. The afternoon was glorious, but very windy, and we headed back to the beach at Widemouth Bay to give the kite an airing. After another bracing hour or so it was into the Widemouth Bay Cafe to warm up with hot chocolate.
Day 25 - Today was one of the loveliest of days and I was absolutely spoilt for choice of photographs to choose from. We were all having lunch at The Weir, then we went spent a lovely couple of hours on Crooklets Beach in the warm sunshine, where the little man loved paddling in all of the rock pools ... however deep! We ended the day with cake at the Crooklets Beach Cafe, which I am sure will become a firm favourite. Before we did any of these things though ... Martin and I had a walk out to Widemouth Bay point to hide one of those painted stones that we'd found back at home and we came across the strangest of sights. Yes, this is a tortoise ... called Zola, taken out for a walk every day by her owners and clearly loving the warm sunshine 🌞🌞🌞
|Day 26 - Another glorious day, most of which we spent wandering out onto the breakwater and along the beach. We were back to the Crooklets Beach Cafe for lunch and couldn't have asked for a better view.
