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.
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.
