We recently spent a week in Northumberland – where I was brought up – at my parents’ house. I miss the beach in my life. But it was such a joy to see my children finding such simple pleasure and delight in nature. Oh to be a kid again and dance in the waves! My daughter spent about an hour simply dancing with her reflection and jumping in and out of the surf. She was so soaked and cold by the time she’d finished she may as well have gone for a swim!
