life's a beach

Yet more rain as I sit here tonight and I have decided that the only place to be is the beach. You're going to get wet anyway!

We've spent many a wet weekend in Cornwall thinking of interesting ways to entertain the children. The house (and beach) is by a boat yard so there are always plenty of bits of old paint for the children to hunt for, along with softened broken glass and bits of old china. We made this boat using some of our finds.

Last time we decided to try crab racing. Having caught the crabs, which provided entertainment itself, we made a starting line with fishing nets and let the crabs race along the beach back into the sea. Half the fun is watching everyone pluck up courage to pick the crabs up and of course they don't necessarily go in a straight line, or at all.
