Seaside

At the weekend, we went to the seaside.  It was a bit chilly (I wouldn’t have wanted to swim) but was pretty nice, all the same.

The beach in winter

The tide was still going out but the beach was still pretty nice.  My children threw pebbles in and pottered about on the shingle.  You see! Wholesome fun.  Not just Mummy getting parking tickets and getting into a bad mood.

Trip to the beach

Yesterday, we went on a bus ride to the beach at Barceloneta.  It was a lovely day and really quite warm (although I kept seeing people out in heavy coats and hats).

It was about 20 C (68 F)

I rather regretted not bringing my swimsuit – E’s son went in the sea but came out quite quickly as he said it was cold.  We met E’s friend and then we all went for an ice cream.
