Stormy Fun at The Beach

Beach Fun

We are very lucky where we live as we can have beach or forest fun within a 15 minute drive, so if we don’t fancy going further afield there is always something fun to do.

Last year we had great fun on the beach following some violent winter storms as they had whipped the sand up into giant mounds, buried benches and hidden beach huts.

Last week saw some high winds and stormy weather roll in again so we decided to take a trip to the beach to see what damage had been done this time.  We parked at Canford Cliffs and played in the Treasure Island Play Park before heading down to the beach.

The kids scooted along the promenade, racing off ahead and then coming back, before heading down to the Branksome Chine beach armed with sticks to write in the sand.

The storm damage wasn’t as bad this year, however the waves had carved out a long ridge of sand that stretched as far as the eye could see.  After a few false starts the kids were soon leaping off the 3ft high ridge.

Beach Fun!
We did some wave chasing too as the waves were quite high.  One of the waves was particularly strong and Eliza wasn’t watching what was happening and got caught unawares – I grabbed her coat to pull her out the way but the hood came off in my hand – someone had a wet bottom for the rest of the afternoon, not that it bothered her! Any excuse to warm up with a nice steaming cup of Hot Chocolate!

    We don’t live far from the beach, but we don’t make as much use of it as we probably should. Love the video.

    Come rain or shine, being beside the sea has the ability to clear away the cobwebs and brain fog and really relax me x

    You’re so lucky you live so close to the beach! I think I might even prefer beaches in winter to summer. Beautiful.

    It must be wonderful to live close to the beach. I’ve read quite a blog posts recently about beach visits and I’m very jealous!

    Such fun (still love that pic of you). I think beaches are great in pretty much all weathers, for enjoying the sun or marvelling at the waves. Wish we were a bit nearer the sea myself.

    I do love the coast in winter. Sadly for us it’s at least a two hour drive.

    Oh what fun, seeing what nature has left behind for you to play in! Our kids are so similar, mine would have headed for that new ridge to jump from too, hours of fun! Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.
