We’ve had a really lovely weekend, both days have been absolutely stunning weather wise. We’ve had lots of sunshine and clear blue skies which after last week it’s been very nice.

On Saturday (1st August) we went crab fishing. We drove to our local Quay which is only about 10 minutes away and as we arrived we noticed they had a mini craft festival there for the weekend.

I used to go here crab fishing loads when I was little. I’ve got lots of memories of being there with friends catching crabs and then releasing them back into the water when we were finished. I was excited to be taking both the kids and although we did take L a few years back when we were over for a holiday, this time they could both join in because C was only 10 months old the last time.

I was a bit nervous of how C would be because I had visions of him wanting to hang too far over the edge but he was actually ok. He was really happy to stand there with the net ready to catch any crabs we pulled up with our lines.

We stayed for a bit fishing before we headed off for an ice-cream for the kiddies and a hot-chocolate & coffee us and made our way round the little craft fair.

Before he headed home I took C into the little play park that was also on the Quay & Hubby & L went back to have another go catching a few more crabs.

I’m afraid there are going to be a lot of photos in this post 😉

On Sunday (2nd August) there was a family fun day being held locally so we went along to have a look. The weather again was just amazing. There were plenty of things to do for all ages and lots of stalls to look around. The best bit being for C was the local Fire Brigade had a fire engine there. C is Fireman Sam obsessed at the minute so he was in awe of it. They were allowing people to sit in there and try out some of the equipment … he even got to turn the hose on! Seeing his little face getting to experience something he adores so much was just amazing.

We took a picnic with us so after a walk around we found a spot to sit at and enjoyed the sun and some yummy cupcakes we bought from a stall holder.

  1. I remember the joys of crab fishing when I was a child. My Nan lived in Cornwall right on the edge of the beach and we’d spend all day playing in the rockpools and in the coves. Happy memories.
