The first day of November felt like summer. After the experiencing Halloween madness the previous night, we along with some friends, decided that a beach day was a must, especially since the day looked very promising.
But it being late autumn, I packed coats, wellies, wooly hats and scarves in the car. It turned out that we didn’t need them at all. Widemouth Bay (as you all know is a fave) and was surprisingly packed well not the beach (there’s always space enough for everyone), but the parking lot, considering it was the last day of the half-term break.
While waiting to meet up with her best friend F, as always, little T and her dad were lost in the rock rockpools.
Soon little F joined his best friend and they quickly had a small collection of rock pool finds, a small fish, crab and some snails.
One must never forget the rock pooling rule: What one finds, must always return back to the sea:
T and F letting their precious finds back into the water.
And then it was time to run around like loonies.
This was what it was like the first day of November. It certainly felt like summer that day. Today, the 14th is an altogether different story. As I type this, I can see our little village clothed in grey and rain. It is definitely autumn once again.
What’s the weather like on your side of the world?
Is it sunny or gloomy like it is here?
