Boys enjoyed a final walk on the beach for 2014

With the beach covered in foam after a short sharp front came through giving us lots of rain and very strong winds, the boys looked like they had socks on and Nico took on a windswept look.

Sun came back in the end though and we finished the day with a lovely evening.

      Contrast to today Mum with clear blue sunny skies – it’s gorgeous! A good start to 2015. Wishing you and Dad all good things for 2015 – especially lots of visits with your daughter and son-in-law and the fur-grandkids on the West Coast 🙂

      Thanks – their favourite part of the day, no wait maybe it is breakfast, or it could be dinner – no beach walks …….. 🙂 Happy boys and much loved.
