Adventures // Wilsthorpe Beach, East Yorkshire

After two weeks off (due to a very mucky beach and then snow!), Beach Sunday was back on yesterday for Mother’s Day. And we were SO ready for it!

We decided to try Wilsthorpe beach, which is situated between Bridlington and Fraisthorpe. In fact, you can easily walk to both of these beaches from Wilsthorpe.

Parking was very limited, but free, and the path down onto the beach was via the boat launching ramp.

It was a bit chilly when we first arrived, but soon warmed up when the sun finally broke through the clouds. So we shunned our coats and popped on our sunglasses! The weather was infinitely more lovely than Mother’s Day 2016 when we ended up in Scarborough and it snowed!

We had our sandwiches on the beach, and then the children (and Nick!) spent a good hour leaping off the sand dunes into the lovely soft sand below.

The sand dunes are the thing that make Wilsthorpe beach very different to Fraisthorpe beach and Bridlington beach. There was a lovely little path along them, which we explored with much excitement. Busby sang “We’re going on a Bear Hunt” and took photos on her little camera.

H-Bear also had his ‘camera’ with him!

Beach Sunday isn’t happening next weekend as we’re off into the woods to shoot The Bunting Tree‘s SS18 range – I can’t wait! (You can find my photography website here). So, it’s entirely possible our next beach adventure might be on Brighton beach when we return to the homeland for Easter… which is a very exciting thought! Busby is desperate to go on the the Palace Pier again – and I have a feeling H-Bear may well enjoy a ride on the helterskelter too.

    What a lovely place to spend Mother’s Day! My girls (and husband) would love jumping off the sand dunes too!

    These pictures are brilliant (as always) – I’m such a big fan of all of the beach shoots! So nice the sun is finally making an appearance, it looks like we are finally getting in to spring (I wonder how long for…)

    Beach days are just the best. Love the outfits too – even the dogs!
