Our schools' term ended on Friday for a belated Easter holiday; OK a tad after Easter but it spreads the holidays up a bit better.
For her first day of school holidays Granny wore M&S taupe jeggings, Next printed jersey tunic top and Woolovers Pepper cashmere/merino edge cardi, with M&S snakeskin flatties..
We had a super day. Fun, sunny and warm.
This is a great piece of kit if you have children in the family. It's easy to use. Some soft toys were made and a cute iPhone handbag. Great entertainment, great learning, great work.
Then we went out for some fresh air and seaside fun.
L'Eree was our playground today - nature provides us with some wonderful adventure paradises.
In the distance is Lihou island; it can only be accessed via a causeway at low tide. The house on the island is rented out to big groups. It's a real Enid Blyton-style holiday for families staying there.
We watched the waves crashing into the rocks, then waterfalling through the gaps.
The waves' spume looked like milk pouring into a frothy milkshake.
We stopped a moment for some quiet thought at the memorial to a ship wrecked off the coast some years ago. The Le Hanois lighthouse lies off the shore to protect vessels but sadly this one hit the rocks in a storm and many poor souls lost their lives.
Our favourite little cove, where the playing began.
We threw stones in to the sea as far as we could;
a few even managed to skim the surface!
A fine collection of cuttle fish were amassed.
Photographs were taken of some of the many varieties of wild flowers, here are a few.
We took time to smell the gorse - heavenly when its warmed by the sun.
And then we had to say a la perchoine to our little play-cove, for it was time for lunch (chocolate biscuits and ginger beer maybe?!).
I hope you enjoyed your trip to the seaside.
A la perchoine.
