Dear Mummy, there’s nothing better than a trip to the beach to get rid of winter cobwebs.
It’s not often that we get a trip to the beach so we jumped at the chance to head down to Hayling Island in Hampshire to see Grandpa and Granny. They live on the coast right next to the beach which is lovely.
The weekend was surprisingly mild, so after lunch we headed out to see the sea. The wind whipped around my little ears so I wore a hat to keep them warm. Hands stuffed in my pockets I followed daddy across the grassy banks towards the beach huts that lined the stoney beach.
You can usually see right out to the Isle of Wight, but today it’s hazy in the sunlight and the strong wind is causing sea spray clouds. We can see the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth and the sandbanks.
They are lots of people fishing and walking their dogs today and it’s so nice to get out in the fresh air. We don’t stay long though as I’m struggling to walk on the stones and there is nowhere to sit out of the wind, but I gaze at the tiny rock pools and pick up some shells to take home.
My family came down here before mummy became pregnant with me and it brings back memories. It’s lovely to think 3 years later I’m here with them. I wonder where we’ll all be in another 3 years.
Love Bella x

Thanks! We picked that coat up from a second hand sale! Think the brand is called Brights and Stripes? X
A gorgeous place to enjoy the sun! Looks so pretty in there =) #pointshoot
I remember going to Hayling Island some years ago on a lovely sunny day. I find pebble beaches so interesting.
It looks like a lovely beach for you to be able to go and explore, I bet you’re looking forward to being able to go and explore it in the summer when you can have a dip in the sea. I bet you found some interesting shells to bring home with you. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.
