First swim

I'm fairly organised with the children (ie. lugging around a large bag containing several just in case items) but I think relaxed environment mode is taking over - yesterday we drove up to Portsmouth and took nothing except our swimmers and suntan lotion. We stopped at the Purple Turtle Beachclub. The beachclub bit meant I could hire a sunlounger under a palm tree, fab. The beach is lovely, the sea calm and the children loved it. They spent a fair bit of time making sand/recycling (the Belgium influence) art with bottle tops, flowers, seashells etc - they then insisted we phototgraph them separately next to their individual creations. (Who needs a DS Lite I ask myself). We stayed 5 hours and then made our way back via Connie's bar at Mero. One rum punch and a rum & coke later we were on our way back home. I'd floated in the sea, closed my eyes and for the first time in ages, thought of absolutely nothing. Bliss.
