Beach life #LivingArrows

We’ve had such a lovely long weekend celebrating Mr H’s birthday and to be honest I am quite sad to be back to the routine of school and work. As the school gates opened on Friday afternoon we whisked Mr H off to St Anne’s, Lytham which never disappoints. We were so lucky with the weather, blue skies and bright sunshine filled our weekend. This little man was desperate to explore and had a smile from ear to ear for the whole weekend.

These photo’s were taken on Saturday, a day where we ran through sand dunes and rolled down hills, well actually I should say fell down hills. Mr H and the boy were running so fast that they both went tumbling down, thankfully they stood up laughing, I caught it on camera – most definitely a you’ve been framed moment and one we’ve laughed at so many times since.

The sun shone for most of the day which felt so wonderful, we arrived on Friday evening to a torrential rain storm and left on Sunday afternoon to the same, so to wake up on Saturday and Sunday morning to blue skies and the shine shining was a very unexpected treat.

Linking up to Donna’s #LivingArrows over on her blog What The Redhead Said. You can catch up with my portraits of Lil G this year here.

    I love the beach and as I am lucky enough to live in North Devon we have several on our doorstep, the only problem is come the summer, they are jammed packed with tourists, car parks are full and traffic is dreadful, so we tend to stay in the garden! Living arrows@_karendennis

    Following your suggestion I stopped by on the way back from Blackpool last Saturday but oh my it was very wet! I definitely want to revisit again and your photos are so enticing, it really does look like you all had the most fantastic time and just what the doctor ordered after some busy weeks #LivingArrows

    There is something about Lytham that just lifts your soul. We used to own a static caravan in Blackpool so we used to spend a lot of time there. But one day I WILL hire a beach hut. Gorgeous pictures as always x
