Today was a gorgeous day, bright and breezy and oh so cold. Perfect for wrapping up and having a play outdoors. After lunch we drove to Smiths Strand, a lough shore beach close to where we live for some fresh air and an explore.
Mr F and I had a lot of fun regaling our little ones with stories of how we both visited this beach as children with our parents. Independently of course. We didn't meet until many years later. It feels special to give our children the same experiences we had when we were little.
The light was beautiful turning all it touched golden. The sun was low in the sky and already much of where we played was in shade but when the sun shone it was magical. It has been so grey here lately we really appreciated this reprieve.
After a while we were sufficiently numb to call it a day and head home. Back to relax by the fire.
Tonight I will be welcoming 'Mrs Christmas' back for the countdown to Christmas. The little ones can't wait. Wishing you all a cosy weekend.
I love the colours in the pictures I took today. The combination of blues, greys and yellows is one of my favourites.
