Throughout last year, the idea of being at the beach with the sand between my toes watching my boys laugh and play in the sea was a dream. I so badly wanted to get back to the beach and have a carefree day as a family, especially so after a year of being anything but carefree in all aspects. And last week we managed to do just that! It was half term last week and the weather was amazing, which in itself was a dream after a long winters lockdown at the start of the year. We decided to take a trip to Bournemouth and go back to Boscombe Beach, which we'd been to before a few years ago and loved. We live quite far from the beach, around 2.5/3 hours drive, so going to the beach is a real treat for us, one that we always love!
