Living Arrows 2017 week 31 – beach digging

The first week of the summer holidays, we spent on our annual camping trip with several of our farming friends – mums and kids, plus a couple of dads. We were missing a few of the families from last year, but it’s a lovely group to spend time with and brilliant for the children to enjoy each other’s company.

The first 2 days were beautiful – sunny and hot. After pitching the tents, we headed down to Three Cliffs Bay below the campsite. It was a fair trek down there, and a worse walk back up top again, especially with beach gear.

We live pretty much in the middle of the country, so don’t get to the beach except on holidays. N loves the beach in any weather. He spent a little time body boarding, but this year seemed to prefer digging.

I always think he looks like a little pro body boarder with a wetsuit on. This year we found a handymedown one from one of the boys on last year’s camping trip, fitted better than the wetsuit he had last year.

But give him a spade and he’ll happily waft it around, ordering others where to dig, keen to dig holes and build castles.

  1. Can’t beat digging on the beach! What a lovely tradition, we tried camping for the first time last weekend and had a great time. I am sure it’s the people you go with that make it! #LivingArrows

  2. The beach is so much fun! I used to love to dig a hole and then I would get my towel and sit in it like a seat. And my brother and I would build a car and use the spade as the gear stick! so many happy memories #LivingArrows

  3. Love this one! I could have spent hours digging holes at the beach when I was little. I used to like to dig down until I could stand in it and disappear! Love his wetsuit too – you’re right, he definitely looks like a professional! #LivingArrows

    1. My brother once dug a hole on Theddlethorpe beach, it was so deep he had to make footholes in it. 2 boys came over and asked to have his hole when he went, but he refused and filled it back in before we left!

I love to read comments. Do tell me what you think below
