We were up with the birds yesterday morning (well, we were ALL up, tired Daddy included), breakfast was scoffed and we were in the car and off to Back beach by about 8.30am. It is such a beautiful place, even in the wind and drizzly rain. Matilda's shoes and socks were off in a flash (as usual, though I managed to convince her to keep the rest of her things on, on this occasion, given the not so perky weather). Rocks were clambered over and some thrown into the sea, collectings were collected and my sleepy head was very much revived. I said to Tom, "The sea is very 'oceany' today." That may sound like nonsense but it was. Big and dark and churning, and beautiful.
