Raising a beach bum {The Ordinary Moments} #25

With being born and now growing up (very fast) in the Seychelles, Arthur was destined to love the beach. We are well and truly raising a beach bum!

He was first introduced to the beach at 1 week old.

He’s been a regular little beach bum ever since! It makes us so happy and proud to see him be confident on the beach and near the ocean.

We even spent Christmas morning on the beach!

Now he’s walking around, our trips to the beach have certainly changed, they are a lot more busy, but A LOT more fun! We run in and out of the ocean lapping the shore. We clamber on rocks and go exploring. We hang out in the shade under trees playing with the seeds, the leaves and any other treasures we can get our hands on.

With it being very hot during the day we tend to go early in the morning or later in the afternoon when it’s a little cooler. When you go in the morning you are pretty much guaranteed the beach to yourself, which is just heaven!
These pictures were taken at 8:30 this morning at the beach at the end of our road, it was just us, the sun was out but it wasn’t too hot.  Honestly it was perfection.

I know we are totally spoilt, but this really is an ordinary moment for us. Don’t get me wrong we are truly grateful. We love where we live and that Arthur gets to spend so much time outside and at the beach.

  1. Wow, I wish out beaches looked like this now, today it’s overcast and windy and it definitely doesn’t look as serene and welcoming. It’s great that Arthur’s so confident around the beach it’s a great quality for them to have. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.

  2. Gorgeous photos! What a beautiful spot, how lucky are you to live where you do! We would love to live near the water and make sure all our holidays invlolve the beach or our favourite river. x

  3. Now I don’t want to like this post because I am utterly jealous. Look at you all, you tanned gorgeous lot. And that Santa suit on the beach is just too much. What a fantastic life for Arthur to have, I know it won’t all be rosy as I bet you miss your families a lot, but just such a lovely place for him to grow up. I love the beach and often wish I lived by the sea! x
