As a teacher, and a governor of the boys' school, I know I should be fully anti taking kids out during term time, however I couldn't resist making the most of the opportunity. Sometimes enjoying life and spending time with family are just more important than anything you can learn in a classroom. So since I wasn't working on the Thursday or Friday we all headed off first thing on Thursday morning.
Within half an hour the boys were in the sea and I was sitting on the beach, with the warm sun on my back, wishing every Thursday morning could be like this.
We spent the morning surfing, had lunch of crab sandwiches on the balcony outside a local cafe looking over the beach and spent the afternoon walking round the cliffs to Daymer Bay for a bit of sand-dune action.

By the early evening my sister's family had arrived and her two little boys joined ours for some paddling and wet sand fun.
|Perfect end to a perfect day.|
|Peaceful pasties with a view.|
|Big Cousins hitting the surf.|
|Hiking to the Rumps.|
|All the grandchildren hitting the rockpools|
