Sun, Sea & Sand in St Andrews

We finally found the sun in St Andrews, the lovely University town on the East coast of Scotland. We headed off for a day trip and it was gorgeous. Just look at that sky. The children had a great time - two minutes after this photo was taken they were absolutely soaked - I always pack extra clothes wherever we go now for this very reason!

It was just so nice to feel the warmth of the sun on our faces and hear the sounds of the sea and the gulls overhead.



We were on a tight schedule and had to get home by 4pm, but we still managed to fit in time for an ice cream!

Spare clothes always reminds me of Sophie. We were in Bournemouth, walking on the beach, for a day in the sort of summer we have had this year. Sophie was about 6 at the time and decided to go for a swim fully clothed. She took her shoes off first!!!.We had nothing to dry her with or put her in She ended up wearing my sweatshirt as a sort of over the shoulder dress reaching down to her ankles! The moral of the story always have towels and dry clothes when going anywhere near the sea when you have children with you.!!

Bet they were cold once they got wet! That North Sea doesn't even warm up in a normal summer, let alone this summer.

We use to have great days at St Andrews, the kids use to love going the beach there.The other place we really liked was Tentsmuir, a few miles up the coast, where we would often see Dolphins in the sea.

Rinky dink! Were you a cub scout leader in a past life? I usually trust to luck with kids and water, so I have been known to take naked children home from a place after a particularly bad wet session!

They just can't help themselves. And as soon as you say, don't go in the water - what do they do?
