Surfing Dudes

We are back from one great summer holiday. We didn't go to Mauritius. We didn't go to The Seychelles. And The Carribean it certainly wasn't. But we had one great memorable holiday.

I've been wanting to take the kids to Cornwall for ages and this year we finally managed it.

It's fair to say that the weather wasn't amazing. It rained rather alot. We were sunggled in hoodies a large amount of the time.
But just look at the view. How can this not be a memorable family holiday?
I think the children will remember this for a long time to come. I think they will look back on their childhood and remember the year they learnt to body board.

They'd never stepped in to a wet suit before. Their idea of water was a warm pool equipped with goggles.

They were soon converted into surfing dudes. Body boards under arm, wet suits adorned, they looked and played the part.
I loved the fact they they weren't precious about the weather. I loved that they weren't put off by the Weaver Fish ("ouch" said a poisoned Ruby)

This was definitely a bonding, back to nature, no frills, perfect childhood memory.
