Saturday by the Sea

We traveled by car to Brighton to see the sea.
The cool waves lapped at our feet as we stood on the water smoothed pebbles of the beach.
(There is no sand at their beach but millions upon millions of pebbles of various size and shape).

Madison enjoyed collecting pebbles for home and feeling the cold water splash her legs.

Lillian could not decide if she liked it or not. She alternated smiling and crying whenever her feet were placed in the water.
As proud parents, we could not resist capturing (or trying to capture) Lillian's first experience of the Sea.

We ate sausages and chips with malt vinegar (a new family favorite) for lunch and Ice cream on the beach for dessert.

We especially enjoyed collecting pebbles from the beach to take home with us to remember our visit to the sea (they are on a candle plate on our dining room table).
