I had a shorter than expected morning at work today and was home by 9-15 am (I start at 7 am). It wasn't hot, in fact rain looked possible, but I decided a trip to the beach was in order. So off we went. There was a bit of misty rain when we got to Tangimoana Beach but we weren't turning round. The kids both chased a rabbit on the track to the beach, Frankie yips, Beryl is silent! But they soon came back:)
At the beach we were greeted by 3 quad bikes which thankfully kept on going. And quite a few cars were driving around slowly, but we managed to avoid the traffic:) The kids had the BEST time.

So here's some more photos of mostly Beryl having fun with the tennis ball. Oh, and what about her swimming, you're wondering? Well, I chucked the ball into the sea not knowing the bottom dropped away dramatically and very quickly and neither did Beryl! I took 3 quick photos (wish I'd had it on high speed burst then!) but only 1 was sort of in focus ... Beryl didn't fetch the ball this time, lol! But she can swim now:)
|Beryl CAN Swim:)|
|Diving for the ball!|
|Coming up with the ball:)|
|Where is it?|
|I know it's there somewhere!|
|It's not going to get away!|
|Frankie and the fish!|
|Pretty as well as happy:)|

P.S. As well as an hours running around and swimming at the beach this morning, this afternoon we went to visit an elderly friend who has a very big yard and the kids were doing their usual exploring there. And now it's normal walk time and I'm getting pestered about that!! No, I don't think Beryl is lazy at all, lol!
