Last Monday, it was our 2nd wedding anniversary and as Stuart was off work, we decided to go to the seaside for the day. Thomas has been wanting to go to the seaside for ages. (We last went when he was about 18 months old and he does not remember it.) A few months ago at his nursery, they boarded an imaginary bus and went to the seaside and since then, he has been obsessed with going.
We decided to go to Barmouth, Mid Wales as Stuart has fond memories of going there as a child. When we arrived, Thomas insisted on going straight to the ‘seaside’ (the beach and sea), I tried to explain to him that the entire place was the seaside but he did not understand. Stuart and Thomas battled the strong wind and the cold and went for a dip in the sea. I watched from the beach with a tired Daniel who did not really like the wind.
After the dip in the sea, we went to the town in search of lunch and a bucket and spade for Thomas. We returned to the beach later on so Thomas could ride a donkey and build some sandcastles. Thomas really enjoyed his ride on Bonny (the donkey) and he described it as ‘wibbly wobbly’ when I asked him. Thomas in the end, got bored of building sandcastles and just dug a hole instead!
We left at about 6pm with two very tired children and two very tired parents. It was fantastic day and despite the strong wind, the weather was perfect. We are now even more excited for our holiday at Coombe Mill
