Beach Baby ♥

This morning I took my babe to the beach for the first time, or rather should I say strand as most Irish beaches are full of nothing but stones, just like the one we took him to. The sun was shining and I decided we needed some fresh air so I took my babe to a local scenic spot on our island where you can see the whole harbour, the views there are absolutely breathtaking. My father used to take me to this same spot as a child to skim stones so it's nice that I'm able to take my boy here too although there was no stone skimming, more stone throwing into the water, I must practice the skill again!

 At first the baby didn't know what to make of the place, he was bemused by all the stones and the water lapping over the shore, it was so unfamiliar to him but after awhile he got used to it and crawled his way around the beach and man can that baby crawl, he's too fast for me at times and I have to run after him! As you can see from the pictures below he made tracks in the sand from crawling and got quite a bit away from me. He had a fit when I had to stop him crawling into the water, he's far too keen on swimming, doesn't he know we live in Ireland and that's the Atlantic Ocean he wants to dive into! Whoever said that terrible twos were bad obviously forgot about the divas that one year old's can be, or should I say divo as I have a boy? 

It was great for us to get out while the sun was shining and for my boy to experience a new place and new surroundings. I think we'll definitely have to take more trips to the beach, it's a great place to sit, relax, look at the sea and feel calmed by it all. There is something so serene about being by the sea and I loved just sitting there with my boy, it was so peaceful and we were the only ones on the beach, just how I like it! Hopefully he'll love the beach just as much when we go on holiday and he can actually swim in the ocean.

  3. I love pebble beaches at this time of year. A few years ago, we went to Alnmouth on the Northumbrian coast in January and I loved walking the beath - there was something so mysterious about it, because of the way the light played on the sea and the cliffs.

    Great photos!

  15. Thank you so much for linking up with us!! These photographs are wonderful. I remember when we took Mia for the first time, she refused to let me put her down and just held her legs up and screamed but soon loved it and then just ate sand all day ha! x
