Friday afternoon

Every Friday afternoon I take a little trip along the coast to the little seaside village of Aberlady to take my daughter to her ballet class. Normally, I sit with her little brother and wait inside the church hall and have a chat with all the other Mums who are also dutifully waiting on their off spring. We always make ourselves very comfortable during our wait ~ we take heaters to keep cozy and flasks of hot water to make tea, coffee and hot chocolate ~ more often than not there is also home baking to be had too!

However, last Friday afternoon my very bestest friend had come up to visit, so instead of waiting indoors we decided to go for a walk along the coast as the weather was lovely. It was also an ideal opportunity to let a certain small boy run off some of his excessive boy energy too! We headed on out of the village and along to Aberlady Bay ~ which is a local nature reserve and is very popular with walkers and bird watchers.

It was a beautiful afternoon ~ a mixture of sunny, crisp, cold weather just right for walking.

The sun was low and we had great fun playing about with our shadows.

We were only out walking for just over an hour, but the change from daylight to sunset was absolutely wonderful to watch.

I hope that you all had a very lovely Friday afternoon too ~ and I look forward to catching up with you all next week :O)xx
