Sand in the sandwiches

3:30 pm

Angus beach, originally uploaded by indiaeden.

Sand in the sandwiches,
Sand in the tea,
Flat, wet sand running
Down to the sea.
Pools full of seaweed,
Shells and stones,
Damp bathing suits
And ice-cream cones.
Waves pouring in
To a sand-castle moat.
Mend the defenses!
Now we're afloat!
Water's for splashing,
Sand is for play.
A day by the sea
Is the best kind of day.

We braved the sea side on Monday.Llanddona on Anglesey. It was windy, really windy.
Angus had to sit on the beach tent to stop it blowing away.

I was determined to picnic on the beach, despite the wind, much to Grandmas amusement.

At least the weather was good for kite flying!

I did admit defeat eventually and allowed Grandma home to her warm fire, while we headed off for more seaside adventures at Penmon and a wander around Beaumaris.
We ended the day cosy in The Ship Inn at Red Wharf Bay, where we all ate delicious food before heading home.

Don't be shy, say hello!
