Simple Pleasures

Sometimes, I forget why we decided to leave London three years ago and move to the coast.
But today's unseasonably hot weather reminded me what it was that enticed us down to Devon.
I took the children down to the beach, and aside the cost of an ice cream each and a couple of rides on the pier, it didn't cost me a penny.
We made a packed lunch and walked for ten minutes to arrive at this:

Little E and little B played in the sand together.
Little B had a fantastic time.


We met up with some friends and spent some time on the pier, playing on the rides


and admiring the view.
It's amazing to believe that this is Great Britain, in October and people were swimming in the sea!


We had a quick paddle, but it was pretty cold!

"Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside, oh I do like to be beside the sea."
