The Best Laid Plans..........
So we set off on the 10 minute dawdle to the sandy beach near the caravan. It turned out that Harry and Chloe had other ideas! We made it as far as the rocky beach (less than a 1 minute dawdle) and Harry, distracted by a rock that clearly needed climbing (he can’t help it – it’s in his genes!) dropped anchor and set about getting the Titanic ready to sail.
(If you’ve been anywhere near Belfast lately, you’ll be aware there’s a bit of a Titanic frenzy going on – it’s obviously rubbed off on Harry, too).
Once ready to sail, Harry enlisted Chloe to look out for icebergs. Judging by the grins, the coast was clear.
Eventually, the ship docked, the crew safely disembarked (big relief all round, especially for Mummy who prefers climbers to be roped up)and Harry and Chloe set about exploring their surroundings. Chloe particularly enjoyed the flowers (although admittedly, some time was spent learning to sniff them as opposed to attempt to bring them home)?
We never did make it to the sandy beach that day, but we had a ball anyway. Ash and I have great plans for future adventures, spurred on by the opportunity to share them with other like-minded families. However, this adventure reminded us that sometimes, with littlies at the heart of what we’re trying to do, less is definitely more! (although we’ll def let you know when (if?) we make it to the sandy beach, hopefully someday soon).
