A trip to the beach

The weather, having been rainy and windy for so long, finally broke.  And so we went to the beach.

If there are two places I’m drawn to, it’s hills and beaches.  Today was no different and so we set off to Hoylake.  It’s not a beach I’ve visited before, but it is vast.

Of course you can’t go for a walk on the beach without taking a dog, right?  Fudge had never been to a beach before and really didn’t know what to make of it.

Lots of jumping around in excitement.

Lots of wimpering and clingyness – the big wimp!  Maybe she’s agoraphobic?!

Fudge had also never played fetch before! She looked at us like complete idiots to start with, but once she got the idea she thought this was the best game ever invented!

The sand buggies were out and it looked like they were having an absolute ball.  This is definitely something I want to have a go at at some point!

The recent storms don’t seem to have been kind to the life at the bottom – the beach was scattered with star fish that must have been washed up from the depths of the sea.

We had a really fantastic afternoon, and had the beach pretty much to ourselves.  Who said beaches are just for the summer?
