A holiday on the coast


After the stress of moving house, the very next day we hopped in a rental and drove up north to the coast to spend a few days caravanning and taking in the last of the summer. It was our first holiday with Forrest and our first real break since Iceland, way back in 2012. We didn’t have much on our agenda except swimming, cooking (which we have not been able to do for the last six weeks) and explore the local seaside. If there was a theme of this holiday it was (mainly) stormy weather and hot seaside cinnamon donuts. We ate so many of those delicious things whilst tramping around rainy beaches. Aside from two teeth deciding to pick there moment and arrive, it was such a wonderful time of doing very little except appreciating one another and the rare moments we get to spend together. 

There is nothing better than waking up to play with my tiny wild one

Or spending my days on a freezing beach with these two.

We may have also used this holiday to teach Forrest about the joys of gambling (he won a slinky)

and how to play in laundry bags. Oh and we are clearly a family that wears a lot of stripes it seems. I’ve got a few more to come when I get two seconds in between unpacking and running round after a near crawling baby.
