Swiss ball

Ibiza is totes ahead of the curve  – Swiss Balls for tiny tots. I’ll have a super strong core by this time tomorrow.

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside 2

Oh we do like to be beside the sea! And hence when the sun shines we do what any self respecting Brit would do and don our shorts and head to the beach (along with the rest of the world and their dogs).
And what a jolly time we had. We got sand in our cous cous, sand in our shoes, sand in our drinks, sand on our blanket and everywhere else – when I had my bath tonight I found loads of sand somehow still attached to me – but nonetheless sand notwithstanding we had a great time digging holes, people watching and paddling. We had taken our swimming togs but decided it was a little bit too cold – we’re not that crazy – although a lot of people were! Maybe next time.

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside…

oh we do like to be beside the sea. Which is exactly where we were today.

We went for a stroll along Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast starting at Nstionsl Trust site Burton Bradstock. I climbed the cliff for a good view

Then I closely studied one of the thousands of hairy caterpillars that were crawling around

And then I went  for a play on the beach and in the very cold sea



We went to the beach today and I ate my first sand-wich – a mouthful of powdery yellow sand. Delicious!

I learnt how to build sand castles but much of the time I was more interested in eating my spade.

I also went for a paddle up to my waist in the sea. I wanted to go deeper but I wasn’t allowed

On Friday we went to the beach as it was a lovely sunny day. The big M wanted to go paddling but decided it was still a bit too cold. I think I agree. We wandered round Lyme Bay, which is on the Jurassic coast, taking in the historic Cobb harbour and beaches. It was very pretty. Although judging by this photo you wouldn’t know! It looks cold and miserable and I don’t look much happier!!!!


On the way home we stopped into see Toby a university friend of the big m and d. He’s just bought a b&b over looking the bay and is currently renovating it. When we got there the front wall was missing. They’ve got guests coming on 3rd April – no pressure!

Beach bum

This morning I learnt how to be a beach bum.

We ambled down to the sand nice and early in order to secure our space. Luckily all the clubbers weren’t up yet so we pretty much had it to ourselves. Then we went for a dip in the sea. It was a bit chilly to begin with but once you got used to it it was fine – not as cold as the lake in Zurich when we stayed at my godmother’s house.

I liked the surf line and chasing the waves. I hope we come again tomorrow. I might ask the big M and D for a bucket and spade.
