Guest Post: On the Beach in Norfolk

This week is Make, Do and Push! Mash-up week. As I’m on holiday (hopefully) relaxing, I’ve asked some lovely, talented, fellow bloggers to write guest posts with the theme “Seaside”.

Today’s guest post is from one of the kindest, and loveliest, people in the Blogosphere: Annie from Mrs Crafty B. Annie has a little boy, Baby B, and is also expecting her second, Bumpleton, in Autumn. In this post she writes about Baby B’s first adventure on a Norfolk beach. Incidentally, we’re off to Norfolk today to look round my old University stomping ground in Norwich.  I shall leave you in the very capable hands of Mrs Crafty B – take it away, Annie!

When I found out that the lovely Hannah was hosting a seaside themed week here over at Make, Do and Push!, I jumped at the chance to share a special memory with her readers.

Summer 2012 not only saw my first born turn one, but a couple of days after his birthday, we took him on his first family holiday and for first time on a beach whilst mobile. (I don’t count our day trip to Clacton when he was a couple of weeks old!)

Me, my hubby, Baby B and our dear friend headed off on an adventure to Weybourne in Norfolk, where we were lucky enough to be able to hire a friends holiday cottage for two whole weeks. Weybourne is very quiet so we had to go out to new places every day, but we didn’t mind that. Naïvely, we didn’t realise the choice of accommodation would just be a less than convenient place to look after a just mobile little one, but the cottage was beautiful and it did not stop us making the most of some wonderful day trips.

At this point Baby B loved the sand pit at the nursery he used to go to, so I couldn’t wait to get him onto the never ending sand ‘pits’ of Norfolk.

Fish and chips. Obviously.

The holiday was full of so many memories which I am yet to document (with a bit of crafting) into a scrapbook, but thanks to Hannah, I am able to start this process by sharing some of these memories with you. I hope you enjoy!

Me and my boys!

    Norfolk beaches are our favourite (sorry Suffolk)
    Funnily enough, the photo of me on the beach in my guest post was taken at Wells-Next-The-Sea too 🙂
    These are really lovely photos x

    Aw thank you.

    I enjoyed your post and I really loved the pic of the little ones putting their heads to the floor. Adorable.

    Aren’t the huts at Wells fab? I can’t believe I didn’t share a picture of those!

    Beaches provide a stress free atmosphere where you can completely relax. You can tan, play water sports, read, or just enjoy the beauty of the beach.
