#1 Sitting on the sand, with the wind whipping at your hair, watching your brother dancing in the sea.
#2 When it comes to water you really are a little crazy. It was so cold but you swam, right up to your neck, until you were blue. Absolutely bonkers.
We had a blast meeting new friends and the best of old ones, too, at the seaside. It was one of those weird weather days. Warm, muggy, threatening rain, bright sky, black sky, huge downpour. Our closest beach is Whitstable, stony like most of this part of the Kent coast but Boy2 was thrilled to find the tiniest patch of sand amongst the pebbles. A happy boy and his bucket. The older boys in the group wasted no time getting wet. Boy1 was really reluctant to get out despite chattering teeth and blue skin. I felt cold just watching!
