Here I am: On the dunes at Burnham-on-Sea

sea rocketHere I am. Standing in the dunes at Burnham. One of my favourite places to take the dogs for a walk. The tide is out, so the sand seems vast. Giving plenty of room for the Pup to run.

Room for everyone to run.

running on the beach at BurnhamIt’s beautiful. One of those days I’d love for them to remember for ever. When they look back, I hope they will recall their childhood as one full of days just like this one.

Oh, and my children running, playing and being children.

    There is nothing quite like the feeling of sand between your toes. You were lucky to have so much space to yourselves. Our dog would love it. I love the idea of your here I am posts – much more comfortable with that than a selfie šŸ™‚
