Dinner at the beach

We decided to have dinner at the beach tonight - one of our favourite things to do to. When we got in the car it was sunny and bright but we drove through torrential rain on the way to the beach and were thinking we'd have to turn our picnic into a car-nic but when we got there the skies were clearing and we could see the rain heading out to sea. The salt haze had been washed out of the air, the light was dazzling and this rainbow tempted us to dip our toes in the water.

We bought hot chips, set ourselves and tried not to eat too much sand.

The hot chips brought the seagulls. They're pretty bold! We enjoyed watching them squabble over our leftovers as the sun set.

It wasn't easy to get them in the frame but I did enjoy trying.

oh, now I'm scared. I have a bit of a hatred for seagulls... though you do manage to make them look pretty. And for me that takes a LOT of doing.

Ooh, VERY cool seagull photos!! And how lovely your picnic looked. My almost-eleven-year-old still hasn't ever experienced a beach, unless you count Lake Michigan...
