My Sunday Photo – May 7th, 2016.


At about 2.30pm on Bank Holiday Monday Freya said: “I wish we could go to the beach.”

We hadn’t done much the previous two days and so, even though it wasn’t entirely beach weather (brrrrrr), we piled into the car and drove to Sea Palling.


Having been there in the summer when it’s heaving with people, it was rather nice to have the beach almost to ourselves. In fact, it seemed like there were more people in the water than on the sand at one point.


I’ve never seen kitesurfing before but found it quite mesmerising. Freya wasn’t quite so keen on the wind but was still happy building sandcastles and playing in the pools (where we found razor shells for the first time). Mark was just…cold (for some reason he didn’t bring a big coat).


“I know, let’s warm-up with an ice-cream,” Freya suggested.

Mark and I opted for freshly cooked warm sugar doughnuts instead.

Wishing you all a lovely week.

  1. I love visiting the beach in all weathers, although we don’t live very close so often it has to be a planned trip. We saw kite surfing for the first time this week in Wales and I found it really interesting too #MySundayPhoto


  2. Hi Tara, it’s making me cold just looking at Freya wrapped up against the cold whilst clutching her spade. An ice cream to warm up? It must have been bitterly cold…. A freshly made warm doughnut sounds a far more appealing treat!



    1. She had about 14 layers on too. I didn’t actually think it was too bad but then I had my proper winter coat on…unlike some people. Hehe.


  3. I love how she’s got her hood done up so tightly, very sensible!
    What is it with men (and teenage boys) and not taking coats out with them?!


  4. Love her little face in that first pic! 😀 I do actually like beaches on cold blustery days though, part of being English I guess! 😀 #sundayphoto


    1. Me too, although I am longing for summer now (when I will complain it’s too hot. Another part of being British, I think 🙂 ).


  5. I love the beach anytime of year, you just have to be prepared for it. We’ve gone in the fall before and made lovely memories with less crowds. Awesome pictures, Tara, as always. ❤


    1. Me too. We are so lucky that we live close enough to go whenever we want (or just about). I am looking forward to going when it’s warmer though and having a paddle without wellies on 🙂 Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend.

  6. I love her coat! And why not have an ice-cream, even though it was freezing. Ice-creams and the beach go hand in hand. I must admit I’d have joined you and Mark with your donuts! #mysundayphoto
