Fun in the Sun at Crooklets Beach

We’ve been lucky to have good weather this week.  Managed to spend some time on Crooklets beach last Monday along with one of little T’s friends.  We brought their scooters with us, so while my husband and I were sipping our lovely cappuccinos at Rosie’s kitchen outside, the girls were having a lovely time riding on their scooters.

And after a quick snack of cheesy chips and fruit shakes, the girls were ready to have some fun on the beach.

And yes, we did go away with soggy bottoms, the kids that is.  The grown-ups were dry, but I don’t think we had as much fun as they did.

What have you guys been up to this Easter break?

Where has the sunshine gone?

The sun has gone, temporarily I hope –  instead we’ve been having grey clouds and rain.  Then again, what am I saying?  This won’t be England without the grey and rain, especially on a bank holiday weekend.  It always rains.

However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t go on the beach in this weather!  Just make sure you have a place to shelter once the rain starts pouring.

This is Crooklets beach in Bude.  It’s not as lovely as the other beaches here in Cornwall, but what I like about this place is that it has a playground near the beach and an American-style diner called… Rosie’s Kitchen and another place that serves delicious but-a-bit-pricey soup that tastes a bit like the traditional Scottish soup, Cullen Skink.

Crooklets also has rock-pools the kids can explore, as seen above: Little T and F with their buckets and spade.

And of course, they made sandcastles, or what looked more like two towers.

His and hers.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside… even in the grey.

What’s the weather like on your side of the world?
