Ethan and I went to our local cinema for Kids Club to watch the most recent Studio Ghibli film on Saturday morning and afterwards Pete and Felix met us and we set off for the seafront.
I love living in Clevedon. Yes, it's not the most "happening" place in the world, it's an old Victorian seaside town.. but it is beautiful. We have so many facilties. Yes, not as many as you'd get in the city but I feel we are much better off than surrounding towns. We have a pool, a cinema, schools, playgrounds, nice shopping areas and best of all, our award winning pier and seafront. Did you know a lot of Broadchurch was filmed here? And Never Let Me Go did some filming here and featured the pier on their film poster.
Ethan and I decided to paddle in the Marine lake - it was a bit seaweedy but quite pleasant to stand in and Ethan had a whale of a time looking at all of the crabs other people had caught.
We popped to the playground afterwards and had an ice cream.
These are the kinds of days you look back on with the fondest memories, I know from experience. They are the "perfect" days. Even though not every moment during them is perfect (screaming hot baby, dirty nappies, the usual!) but when you look back, it's like you can feel the sunshine on your face, the sounds of happy children, taste the salty air and the sticky ice cream. Precious.
