Horseshoe Bay | Our babe’s first day at the beach

We went for a drive to Goolwa today; we needed to refill our water containers and grab a few groceries, so we thought we’d drive on to Port Elliot to take the children to the beach.

Scott and I came here; to Horseshoe bay, many years ago when we were still living in Adelaide and Elki was very small. Such a different time that was to now.
It was warmer than we expected when we arrived; Elki dove straight in and Anusha was not far behind.

image

The ocean was rougher than what the children usually swim in but Elki threw himself into riding the waves and Anusha jumped in the shallows as they rolled into shore.

image

I settled down on the sand with Zubin, realising this was his first time at the beach! He was a little unsettled by the wind, but after a feed and snuggle he started to explore his surroundings.

image

Anusha joined us again to warm in the sun and played with her little brother in the sand……

image

She built a mound for Zubin to tear down,

image

It was so beautiful to see his wonder and sharing this experience with his sister,

image

He explored the sand with such excitement, joy, and curiosity,

image

And after being half buried by Anusha they dug a hole together.

image

Sweet little toes emerging from the sand.

image

Elki returned for a break and drink,

image

Then ran back in with goggles to explore underwater.

image

Anusha and Zubin ventured down to the shore.

image

Then all three came together.

image

Zubin had his first taste of sand.

image

And felt the chill of seawater.

image

Then they found an inviting warm pool.

image

It’s hard to think of anything that I love more than observing my beautiful three explore and share the wonders of nature together.
