Off to the beach!

With summer weather really and truly here and temperatures steadfastly into the thirties every day (well above mid-thirties most days!) we grasp any opportunity for some relief by taking a day-trip to the sea.

Jonathan & Debbie and family have joined Raphael & Camille and family for the week in Brittany (near some of Camille's family) in order to enjoy the beach.  As they were getting ready to leave "bright and early" on Saturday morning I suddenly got a similar idea... why not take our own children to our closest beach near Caen, just two hours away!

Since the idea came a bit late for an early start we didn't leave till past eleven but by one thirty the kids were in the sea at Riva Bella, Ouistreham — exactly two hours to get there!

The next day we got this shot from Raph as their crew headed out.

Unfortunately the sun was so strong I couldn't see what I was taking a picture of so I only got this one picture as a memory of the day for us: just a beach scene — but we sure had a good day out!
