A British day out at the seaside

I've been desperate to head down to the seaside for months now.  For me, there's nothing quite like the smell of fresh sea air, only topped by feeling the sun on your back and seep through into your bones.  So with the long bank holiday weekends it seemed the perfect time to venture down to the coast.  Unfortunately last weekend, when the weather was truly glorious, I was poorly and couldn't even summon the energy to leave the garden.  So yesterday was deemed "Beach Day" in the Chadwick household.

Excitement in the air from the moment Syra woke us up.  Although a bit unsure as to what exactly all the excitement was about, Syra quickly joined in.  There was much rummaging to find the picnic blankets & hamper, sun screen and in a moment of madness, the bikini was even hauled out from the deepest darkest depths of the wardrobe.

Swanage had been recommended so with the trusty sat nav to guide us we set off.  We made it down to Sandbanks, Poole and decided that we'd spent more than enough time in the car and it was well and truly time Syra was introduced to the beach.  First we had to navigate the board walk with all the wind surfers and their picnics until we came to a stretch of sandy beach where the water remained shallow for miles.  Syra found another wee pup to play with and blithely followed the pup in to the water.  There was a puzzled look at first and then she went for it in her own true style - bunny hopping through the water, back legs kicked out so they wouldn't get too wet!  Absolutely hilarious to watch.  When Syra had finally chased the water to her hearts content we were allowed to leave and find a picnic spot.  By chance, we happened upon the perfect spot - a park overlooking the sea with a coastal walk.  And this is where we whiled away the afternoon, wrapped up in our hats and scarves against the wind.  By good fortune, we were recommended a tip top fish n chip shop and so I had my longed for fish n chips sitting by the sea - the perfect end to our day at the seaside.
