Could not think of another title – so went for a bit of alliteration.
On Friday morning it dawned on me that my eldest only has 2 more months at primary school. I managed (with a little persuasion) to get her to pose with her sister, and then both with George the cat.
It will be strange having her at a different school, but by then my son will have started the primary school, so there will still be 2 of our kids there.
Friday night we headed north to the cottage, and the forecast was not too optimistic. These days forecasts are usually quite accurate, so we were pleasantly surprised to wake to sunshine and blue skies on Saturday morning.
We stopped off to take some photos of White Park Bay. We don’t often go down to this beach with the kids as it is quite a walk down from the car park, and more importantly quite a steep trek back up with tired kids in tow. However, it is stunning, and rugged and very unspoilt.
We then headed west, towards Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, but instead of taking the popular tourist path to the rope bridge, instead we headed down towards Larrybane bay. I don’t remember ever being down this way before. There were stunning views of Sheeps Island, Rathlin Island and even Scotland!
As the kids explored the rocky shore and caves, and my husband tried out his new binoculars I took loads of pictures of the crashing waves, and also of the rope bridge, with the intrepid tourists crossing it.
Later I snapped a few photos of the kids.
In the afternoon I did my tour of the local craft supply shops, buying more beads and charms for my soon-to-be-opened jewellery Etsy store. My daughters and I then went to see the new Hannah Montana film, and I managed to stay awake (I have been known to doze off during kids films in the past!).
You will have to wait for my next post to see the photos I took today (Sunday), but they include wild flowers, a train and some “dark hedges”.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend, wherever you are.
I would love it if you could tell me which of the photos in today’s blog post you like best?
Even if you rarely comment or never comment (and there are quite a few of you!), please try……it is quite painless, really!
