It’s officially little T’s first week of summer and it doesn’t feel like it at all. Not allowing the grey skies and low temperatures to dampen our summer spirit, we decided to brace it and have a little fun at the beach. It was summer after all, right?
When we got to the beach, people were already in the water and the beach was also covered in sea foam. These energetic folks were wearing fleecies, not exactly summer wear, I know.
The plan really was to just play on the sand and maybe, T could have a little dip in the water. But the waves were too strong. They decided to just play tag with the waves.
Here’s T and her dad getting read to be “tagged”.
A playful wave came by and caught them by surprise.
Before they knew it, both the dad and the daughter were soaked with sea water. It was actually a scary moment for me. I had this brief scenario in my head where both were swept into sea, luckily they weren’t. In fact, they were both giggling. But I decided to be the party pooper and announced it was time to go home. After all, they were both soaked with sea water and it wasn’t exactly a warm day either. T of of course had some change of clothing, but the husband didn’t.
Later that night, my husband admitted that the wave at one point, was really strong and he feared that there would be both carried away. That’s it. No more playing tag with the waves, I announced.
Looking at these photos, you wouldn’t think that they were taken in the summer, would you? They look more like Spring. Were those few glorious days of summer last week or lot then? Oh well. We’ll just have to learn to make the most if it then.
What do you think?
Has summer decided to pack it’s bags and say “Hasta la vista, baby”?
Then again, this is England, with its ever-changing weather, there might just be a “heat-wave” tomorrow – brace yourselves folks!
