Getting out and about - Exploring and Beach side strolls

As the weather this weekend has been lovely we decided to get out with Baby M as much as we could.

On Saturday it was quite windy but sunny so we explored our local area.  As with many people we walk the same way into town all the time and don't really explore what else is around.  We thought now we have Baby M we should find what is on our doorstep, plus it would get us out of the house and enjoying the nice weather.  We found 2 grassy areas that will be great for Baby M and Mr M to play football on and a small play park near a local school that we can take Baby M to once he is a little bigger.  He loves sliding down Mr M's legs, I can't wait to see his reaction on a proper slide!!

Baby M was engrossed throughout our walk - by sleeping!

On Sunday the wind was much calmer so we went for a beach side stroll.  The beach is about 10 minutes walk from our house.  Not only can you go on the beach but there is a lovely walkway along the side (perfect for the pushchair).  I can see us spending many sunny days on the beach with Baby M!!  The great thing about where we live is that it is away from the main tourist areas so it's mostly local people that use the area, meaning its quieter and cleaner!  The tide does come in really quickly though, we have seen people just getting off the beach in time on many occasions! 

There is a shipwreck and rock pools for us to explore.  When the tide is out there is miles of beautiful beach and the local council are also looking at putting interesting structures on and around the beach - great for exploring kids. 

I have added this link to this week's Coombe Mill Country Kids - have a look at the other great posts too!!
