We don’t have many traditions but there are some things that are definitely starting to become traditions in our family. Our favorite one being our New Years Day visit to see the sea.
I always feel that we are stuck in the house between Christmas and New Year’s. The days have a nothingness feel to them and visiting the sea really makes you feel like you are starting a fresh new year.
What was different, and lovely, about this year is that my brother and his family were also able to join us.
I checked the high and low tide times as I wanted to make sure we would be able to walk on the sand. When the tide is in it completely covers the sand, which means Ethan doesn’t get the chance to throw stones into the waves.
It was freezing, the wind was so cold and Little E wouldn’t wear her hat!
We didn’t stay for long but Ethan and Darren got their sea fix and Little E got to explore, as we were brave and let her out of the buggy for this walk.
We even remembered to bring Ethan’s scooter.
