A September Summer Holiday - The Beach Day

In case you haven't noticed it has been a bit quiet over here lately, whilst we have been enjoying a family holiday.  The bloke, the boys and I flew to Italy, and landed at Rome airport for a week staying at a Canvas Holidays caravan.  There will be plenty more on that this week, but my first post is more photos than words (after all, we have only just arrived back in the UK and my 3am alarm clock means today has been spent feeling tired and working my way through a mountain of washing).

Our holiday was a bit of everything - Caravan park fun, city break and time on a beautiful beach.  This post is about our day at the beach.  A twenty minute bus ride from the site, on a scorching hot day and we found our own spot of paradise.  The sand was much darker than in the UK, the shores emptier and the sun stronger.  We rented sunbeds and an umbrella, and the boys had buckets and spades.

We had lunch overlooking the sea, eating pasta with fresh seafood and of course - we were in Italy after all - it was followed by ice cream.

The sea was cool enough to be refreshing but warm enough to be inviting.  The sand stuck to everything and we all came home with a bit of a glow (apart from the bloke, who mostly stays white).  After a day exploring the city, it was the perfect retreat.

(p.s I did warn you there was a lot of photos!)
