More days out ... to the seaside at Bournemouth

Bournemouth beach

Thursday was our 8th wedding anniversary, although we have been together nearly 18 years! So with a day off and a train station not far away, we packed some things and headed off to the beach at Bournemouth. Only 45 minutes from our local station (20-25 minute slow pace walk away).

Fun ride before lunch and the beach

testing the water
then onto the splashing fun
lots of running and laughter

Lovely day, although a little cool when some clouds descended but it didn't stop the fun on the beach and in the sea. Imogen had a fabulous time - running in, running out as the waves tried to catch her. Lots of jumping up and down, over the waves, falling down, running up and down the beach at the waters edge - a little further each time. A lovely pub lunch of a platter and fish and chips, and a cool beer (adults only!) as we were travelling by train.

raincoat over costume when it got cooler and yes it got soaked in the sea, and sandy

sandcastles and fun

Ice cream before heading home
Imogen would have preferred this one though!

Sun, sea, sand and good company. A lovely day out holidaying near home.
