Sweet Escape

We are going to the beach every afternoon when the tourist are gone.
Its not that we dont like sharing the seafront with people but its really hard to get my son out of the house.
We are always planning to go since lunch time and with all his excuses the only time we can go is 5 in the afternoon!

We are either using the bike or scooter as I want him to get use to it.
I am planning on using them when we go back to school as we can finally use the promenade with the warmer weather.

And he is better!
I thought that he would forget using it but he didnt
and he is doing the standing up while pedalling which he cant do before.


And here he is trying his bike prowess on the sand which did not work =P

But he can still pose like he conquered the battle! He requested a photo of him on top of this!
Like extreme games!

And of course I would take photos while he is playing on the sand!
Like these!!!

And here I am thinking that Harry Potter with a Death Eater is on the beach?
Nope its a family enjoying the view!

This is what we have been doing.
Enjoying the sand and the fact that we live near the beach
and that the weather is finally giving us a chance to enjoy that advantage!

The home front is not as fun as the beachfront so its a nice near escape.
Nights are made up of quarrels and cold war. Going back home is a chore to me and my son.
I wish we dont have to go back but we need to. I wish we can just stay at the beach forever but we cant.
Or can we?

My word of the week is Beach.

It does sound like a lovely place to spend time. More peaceful without the tourists. Beautiful photos. Great to be out on the bike again. #MadMidWeek

I always enjoy your photos! That's neat that soon he can use the promenade to get to school. Maybe you can entice him with hot chocolate or something to get him home in the evenings? Take care!

Great photos! I wish it was beach weather here in MA. Your son's bike is cool! He is ready for some serious off-roading!

Hi Merlinda, love your photos again and your son is turning into a right little poser. It is nice to live close to the beach, I can't ever imagine living too far away from one and they are much better off season.

Have a good weekend.

Lovely word and looks like you've both been making the most of living so near to the beach. My kids would want to be on it every day, I'm sure! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

I'm so sorry it is not so easy at home at the moment. I am glad you have the beach to go to to clear your head and enjoy time with your son x

Beautiful photos. I don't like the beaches either here in Cornwall while there are lots of tourists around! So we dont go to the beach often in the summer! xx

You are so lucky to live by the seaside! I too like it when it is less busy, and taking photos - it's so hard not to! xx

It looks like you've had a great time exploring the beach with your son, my favourite time to go is in the evening, it's usually still warm but a lot less crowded. It's great that he's getting more confident on his bike and can even stand to peddle now! It looks like you've definitely had the weather to enjoy the beach too, looks like a lovely way to spend the week. Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.

Beach is a great word
We love the Beach, its our favorite place to be, the sun, the wind, the sand, the salt...its like a healing power going all the way through the body!
Love your sons bike pose - we don't have any bikes at the moment, but our boys used to love riding there's whenever they could :)
