Tuesday afternoon Mum and I took Aidan to the beach for the vey first time. I can’t say he loved it but he didn’t hate it either. It was 35 degrees and the wind was so hot like a hairdryer, even at 5pm. We only stayed for 20 minutes, had a little splash and then headed home.
Mum and Dad live at Soldiers Point in Nelsons Bay NSW, a short 3 hours drive from home. It’s a beautiful coastal town full of sailors and pensioners. The perfect place for Aidan to spend his holidays.
The water was a little cool but still quite lovely and it didn’t take long for him to start splashing about. If I could change anything it would be that Steve could have been there. It was such a beautiful moment,even if it was short lived. This afternoon I bought him a tiny rashie suit and matching hat from Target and hopefully he can wear that next time we head down for a splash.
Of course Grandma got in on the action and had a ball with her little boy. There were smiles all around and when we got home Aidan and I had a lovely warm bubble bath together to get rid of all that pesky sand… I can’t wait to go again!
