As promised here is a “days out” post!  We spent one of the last evenings of summer on Broad Haven Beach.  It was a free day out as parking in Broad Haven is free after 5pm (and also out of season from October).   We parked up and eager for fresh air made our way to the beach.

The kids stopped to look for dragon flies in the tunnel steam.

Dave and the kids are drawn toward the rocks as they all love climbing while I tend to be drawn towards the sea.  Even when I’m not planning to swim I just love to watch the waves rolling over my feet while I listen to the sound of the ocean.

Izzy gave me a pretty yellow rose.

I took a much needed photo of all the kids together with Lion’s Rock behind them.  Now I need a few whole family shots!

Izzy’s a bit happier in this one!  She loves her sibling cuddles so much!

The landscape at sea always looks as pretty as a picture.  It makes me wish I was a painter and could do it justice but I could never capture that splendid view.

We love exploring the rock pools too.  Sometimes you have to stop and stare for a while before you see anything but during this visit they were full of living creatures that were easy to spot.

We spotted an Oystercatcher foraging for his tea.  They love to eat mussels, whelks and limpets but despite the name very rarely eat oysters!

When the kids placed their hands in the rock pool the fish swam towards them.  They were so well camouflaged in the sand.

Our evening had come to an end.  It started to rain, just as it has during our last few visits to Broad Haven.  Thankfully we don’t mind the rain (the kids and I saw in it last time).  We made our way back up to the tunnel.

The kids were hungry (and starting to get hangry!) so we popped to the local shop (a Londis) for a picnic tea before driving home.  Now the kids are back in school, we’re looking forward to after school adventures and weekend trips again.

 

Have you been to the beach lately?

    We like to go to the beach not just in the summer but all through the year. When we go with our granddaughter we pick up lots of shells that we then use for collage or other crafts.
