Life’s a Beach

In preparation for our family holiday to Walney in the Summer, we took Lola to the beach for the first time a couple of weeks ago. There’s a fair few beaches to choose from, including Zandvoort, Bloemendaal and Wijk aan Zee, but as the weather was so good and we wanted to have plenty of space to run around, we opted for IJmuiden.

There’s not so much going on there, but when you’re a toddler and its sunny and you have a stick, there’s not a lot more you need.

Of course she wrote that herself, with the stick. Ahem….

We topped off the afternoon with a stop at the nearby snackbar for some patat and kroketten before doing an Alan Partridge-style Sunday drive home. Note to self: buy Ewoud some decent leather driving gloves for extra purchase on the steering wheel.

  1. She looks so comfortable for a first timer at the beach! It took a lot of coaxing to get my little guy to walk on the beach for the first time – he wasn’t impressed with sand on his feet and hands 🙂 ps – Lola’s cardigan is so cool.

    • Oh really? It might have been different for Lola is she had been barefoot too, but yeah, she loved it!

      Lola’s oma bought her the cardy, we’re pretty lucky, between 2 sets of grandparents she’s got quite the extensive wardrobe – I’m jealous of it! 😉
