Last Saturday, I had an action packed day. In the morning I went on a sponsored walk at Church. I had opted for the one mile walk rather than the three or five mile walk as I wasn't sure how I would feel when I first arranged it. As it happened, my energy levels would have let me do the five mile walk, so the short one was *easy peasy lemon squeezy.*
After I arrived home, we had a phone call from Sam, asking if Harry and I would like to go to Sand Bay with him and the girls, so with energy to spare, we jumped at the idea and into his car.
When we got there, some of us looked at driftwood and imagined it looked like an animal. Can you see that this one is definitely a fossilised kangaroo?
Sam and Millie went off in search of the sea.
This is not a good idea unless you really know what you are doing as the sea goes out for miles and leaves very deep mud in places. They didn't really go out as far as it looks in the photo and they certainly didn't walk on mud.
I thought the lug worm casts were worth zooming in on. They were everywhere we looked on the wet sand.
Sam had already dug through the sand to find out what lug worms looked like. A bit disappointing, I thought, as they seemed insignificant little things, compared to the large, lovely casts that they leave all over the beach.
Amber liked splashing about in the wet sand. Maybe she was off to find Daddy.
Poor Granddad had to run about a mile, to fetch a beach ball that had been taken up by the wind and carried off into the distance. I really didn't think he would ever catch it, but he did.
And Granddad was quite happy building sand castles which were immediately jumped on as soon as the children saw his model fortress.
So altogether, he used up a good deal of his energy.
I was seriously tired too, after my action packed day and slept well that night. We both did.
