Today I joined my sister and her two boys on a trip to Lytham St Anne’s. Only about an hour’s drive from Manchester, but feels like a world away.
This was Boy 2’s first trip to the sea. Whilst I know it will be a few years before he really understands and appreciates the enormity of it, it was great to see him touch sand and sea for the first time.
As a city living family we rarely get out of the hussle and bustle, but sometimes it’s nice to just get away for a few hours.
So nice to go for a wander, eat fish and chips and build sandcastles!
Obligatory ice cream. The sun might have been out but it was bloody freezing!
