Blue Skies, No Wind, and Plenty Photos

The girls and I went to the beach yesterday afternoon to take some photos.

The day was sunny, and this was mid-afternoon, so the sun was beginning to set. There was also - and this is noteworthy - no wind.

Well, when I say no wind, I mean no wind by our standards. It was a really lovely day.

They even wore dresses for the occasion, and Catherine swapped her spotty wellies for little pumps.

Not sure why.

Then they climbed up onto a dune, just for the fun of watching me having to climb up after them.

I reached. Eventually. And clearly my daughters were taking this whole photo-shoot-thingy really seriously.

Ahhh ... a nice pose.

Just keep it there girls.

Ahem. That was clearly long enough. 

And now you-know-who is in on the action.

Watching Jackson climb these soft-sand dunes was a treat.

An absolutely hilarious treat!

We then headed down to the beach itself...

Jackson had a ball running along the beach, and splashing in the waves.

See him go!

Of course, we couldn't possibly have ventured to the beach without the protection of....

Yes, you guessed it. Our warrior protector was there the whole time.

Fighting battles while we strolled, laughed and clicked the camera to our hearts' content.

I've already posted faaaaar too many photos, so I'll leave you with one of my favourites...

And remember: Butt = Top. Thank you
