Boys, beach and BBQ

Slightly different from the norm for me, no Dartmoor, no tors and no bogs this time. Instead it was a trip after work with a BBQ to the beach to catch the teatime sunshine and have a some fun. We headed for Wembury Point, mainly because its quieter than Wembury beach itself but also so that we could have a go with the flint and steel to see if I could still start a fire. We’d gathered enough sticks and we’d gathered some sheep wool from the gorse bushes on the lanes down here, there was no wind and our luck was in. We used the cardboard from the BBQ to get it going and away it went! Obviously at the end we ensured we had poured enough sea water on it to put it out before we left. I feel it’s important for the boys to have days away from the electronics and just be outside even for just a couple of hours. Next week is Snowdonia for me, a first time up there, can’t wait.
