Day to Day

A Trip to Looe Beach in Cornwall

A few weeks ago, we ventured down to Looe in Cornwall for the day.  The husband was working and the children are always itching to get out and love the beach so Looe seemed like the ideal place to go without being too far to travel.

The weather wasn’t as good as I’d hoped, a bit drizzly, but the children didn’t bat an eyelid as we parked up and walked off.  We couldn’t help but walk past a rather fun play park at the end of the car park so I let them have ten minutes to run around.

In fact the park was so good, I wished it had been nearer to home as it would be a great place to pop to for the children to have a play.  Mister B loved climbing a spider web like rope structure to be like his favourite superhero “Spiderman”.  Miss M was at home on all the ropes and swinging paraphernalia being the action girl that she is!

As you can imagine, after something to eat and a hot bath, they slept soundly through the night after a day in the fresh sea breeze.

    It looks like they had so much fun despite the weather! I love going to the beach when the weather isn’t great as it’s so much quieter and when you have those rainsuits it really doesn’t matter does it!

    Clearly a wonderful and active day outdoors with the kids. The beach is always so much fun no matter what the weather.

  4. The children were perfectly dressed for the some fun at the park and beach on a drizzly day! I can see from the photos that they had a wonderful time and did some very impressive digging in the sand. Thanks for linking up and sharing their fun with Country Kids.

    When everything is a bit overwhelming at home, i would bring my son to the beach for us to have some fresh salty beach air. Never ceased to clear our heads. #countrykids
