A Very Windy Picnic

A Very Windy Picnic

A couple of weeks ago we bought a new picnic basket and blanket (one that was big enough for all of us to sit on).  We have been waiting for the weather to brighten up ever since.  The children were so excited to enjoy a picnic together that the first sign of a sunny afternoon and we had packed up the car to go enjoy a picnic on the beach near Nana’s house in Lytham.

The weather was very windy last week (as I’m sure most of you experienced) and at the beach with nothing to shelter you it did take the edge off the warmth.  The children didn’t mind this, as they were wrapped up and running around playing.  Nana & Grandad weren’t so sure but were brilliant coming along anyway to enjoy the children’s first picnic on the beach of the year.

We had raided the local Booths of all things chocolatey, made some yummy ham and cheese sandwiches (the children’s favourites) took some cherry tomatoes and diluted some cordial.  The beach is literally 5 minutes walk (10 with teeny legs) from my parents house as they live just off the road that runs parallel to the promenade and I’m so looking forward to this Summer with James only working down the road.  We intend to go with Daddy to work every sunny day and go hang out with Nana by the beach before Judah starts pre-school in September.

It was great down at the beach, because it was windy, there was no-one else sitting there.  A few dog walkers, runners, cyclists going past but we pretty much had the run of the place to ourselves.  We enjoyed our picnic and then the children had fun running around and playing.  Eden was in a ridiculously chatty mood.  I’ve never heard her talk so much.  She must have just felt extremely happy.  It was lovely, she had us all chuckling as her chatter didn’t stop.

I feel very grateful to have such by DeleteAd” href=”#29741380″> beauty so local and accessible, especially with us not having a second car yet.  It means that yeah, our Bucket List adventures may have come to a halt for a while (not that we can’t get around with public transport, it’s just not as easy with two toddlers), but we can spend a Summer by the sea.

  1. Grandparents look a little unsure but the children look like they are having a wonderful time, it is only the elderly that mind the weather, children get on and play regardless. A lovely video, you can see by the hair flying in the wind how brisk it was! A wonderful spot to have Grandparents, I’m sure it will be a popular place to escape to at every opportunity! Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

  2. Lovely, what a great spot to sit in even if it was a little windy. It wouldn’t be Britain though would it if the weather was actually good?! Must be great for your family to be so close to the shore, perfect to just nip down for a little picnic! xx #countrykids
