The first time Angelo went to the seaside, he was about 8 months old. We went to Seaford, East Sussex. It was a scorching day. He was well lathered in sunscreen and his cherub curls were under a sun-hat. He looked like he was about to play cricket. The only thing he was missing was his cricket whites. Last Sunday, we went to Brighton Beach. It was Valentina’s first time to the seaside and the first time Angelo played by the seashore. We luv the beach life. Our family trip to Brighton Beach was a success.
Angelo, the brave little tiger that he is was fearless. I escorted him to the shore and he picked up pebbles to through into water. While I was moaning and screaming about the cold water on my feet; he was undeterred from throwing the pebbles.
He didn’t seem to notice the cold! BRRrrr…
Baby On Brighton Beach
Since seeing Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, I get a bit anxious when they get too close for my comfort. All in all our trip to the beach was a good late afternoon treat for the kids.
They both slept much better that night, must been the fresh air and excitement of the new location.
Its true what they say, ‘the best things in life are free’.
Other Attractions on Brighton Beach
I should mention, there are other attractions in Brighton. You could easily spend a day in Brighton, with or without kids. There’s the seafront attractions like Brighton Pier which has a video arcade and amusement rides, as well as seafront eateries and ice cream parlours. Alternatively you can visit The Lanes. The Lanes is well known for it’s independent shops and boutiques.
Away from the maddening crowds there’s Stanmer Park and Woods which is on my list of places to visit with the kids. It’s another way to give them sensory play experience
