Taken about a week ago this is a view looking across the Bristol channel from Severn Beach. Anyone who's been there will know that "beach" is a bit of a misnomer!
But my kids love places like that far more than "proper" beaches I'm pleased to say. Big girl had a lovely time looking for "old lady sticks" while small girl searched for "Morris dancing sticks" and I collected driftwood to make picture frames. As the old saying goes, The Best Things in Life are Free and even the crappiest of places can yield treasure!
