After our Karting we headed up to Newquay in search of some beach fun and lunch. It was an amazing coastal drive but the town itself was too commercial and frantic for us. So we grabbed some pasties and I snapped the main beach before we left:
A Google search revealed a dog friendly beach back along the coast at Mawgan Porth so we all headed that way. It was worth the drive:
The children were soon in wet suits and took the very long walk to the sea (it was low tide):
Once again I was only brave enough to dip my toes in whilst they enjoyed the breakers:
Gemma the spaniel soon decided to join in. She loved the stream running down the beach but once she discovered the waves she wasn't so keen:
The children were so happy jumping in the waves and mucking about in the warmer water of the stream and pools. The adults took turns supervising them as we couldn't get them out! At one point I almost managed a snooze combined with a cuddle from a worn out spaniel...
Eventually the children had enough and came back to warm up and get dressed. They were revived with the most delicious ice creams from the cafe. I would definitely go to the beach again.
