Last day of summer

On the last day of the school holidays the boys and I went to the beach. Rio del Mar beach again by popular request.

We took a picnic and Adam's new skim board. They have been earning extra pocket money doing hard labour in the garden!

For those who have not seen one in action a skim board is like a small flat wooden surfboard. You throw it into shallow water at the water's edge, while the wave is receeding, and ride the board out on the wave. I can assure you that it's much harder than it looks!

Finlay and I stuck to the boogie boards. No Sea Otters this time but there were a lot of dolphins and seals, one of which came up very close to have a look at us.
