A Beach Day in Winter & Plastic Free July

While I am all rugged up next to a heater with fluffy socks and a warm tea while typing this we had a surprise return of Summer over the long weekend and what did we do? You guessed it! We went straight to the beach in the morning sipping delicious coffees while Faye ran around in a swimsuit and even splashed in the water! Lots of people went swimming but I didn’t bring my bathing suit, which was my only regret that day.

Faye, on the other hand, was ready for anything. 

I always think kids look the happiest on the beach. They can roam free, climb rocks, dig in the sand, scream, build and destroy, jump and of course there is water to play in.

All the best toys are indeed free: water, sand, rocks & sticks. 

I am also a big believer of as much unstructured play time as possible for kids and this was just what Faye needed. 

She could just be free and play.

I think it was also just what we needed. 

A cup of coffee while watching her, overlooking the beautiful harbour and relaxing for a moment. 

Very much in love with our city and beautiful local beaches!

At the beginning of this year, we were trying to work out the big life questions. We wondering where to live (was it time to change cities?) and did a lot of research into schooling for Faye. 

Well, we confirmed and enrolled Faye at our local Montessori School, where she will start pre-school next year and continue on until she turns 12 years old!

We couldn’t be happier. 

This means we will stay put. 

Such a great feeling to have some clarity!

That was a little round up from us!
Also it’s Plastic Free July!
So we are trying our best to avoid all single use plastic and continue our journey toward #zerowaste!

Faye’s swimsuit was a gift from Fit Swimwear a professional quality eco-swim label.
