“You are the moon, dear love, and I the sea”
Woke up this morning to grey clouds and rain, but the forecast had promised us some clear skies. I was the first up today to feed Olivia, although the others weren’t far behind me and soon after breakfast the sun came out and the clouds drifted away, so we all headed out to Lyme Regis for a few hours. It was lovely to introduce Olivia to the seaside even though it was a cool, windy day, she still got to see the sea and smell all the different seaside smells, and listen to the waves break on the shore. I truly believe there is nothing better than the fresh sea air to cure many ills and give you a great nights sleep.
We walked along the promenade and stopped off for some seaside chips and a hot pork sandwich, whilst dodging a few showers and then headed down to the beach and walked along the cobb, which for those who don’t know is a enormous curved wall which acts as a breakwater to protect the coast line from the strong tides and waves. Apparently it was first built in the 1600s and has been rebuilt several times since, the last being about 1912. We finished our trip to Lyme Regis with an ice cream before heading to another beach for a little walk, but once we we’re there decided against walking far as the girls were all tired and the weather was a bit cold and windy by this point. We headed back to our friends house for a film and some homemade lasagne, before the girls all went to bed and we kicked back for a relaxing evening before we prepare for our journey home in the morning!
