Saunton Sands 2011

Every year we have a family weekend away at the Saunton Sands Hotel, it is always such a great weekend, really relaxing and of course a fantastic photo opportunity! We came back from our weekend last night and I have just sorted through all the photos that I took, not too many this time only 600, anyway I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you.

 As soon as we got to the hotel we got ready to go down onto the beach, we were ready first so waited for everyone else in the garden which gave me a photo op much to the girls annoyance!

We hired some beach buggies for the kids to have a go in, we ended up all having a go and I have to say they were great fun. I love the first photo of the girls pedalling into the distance.

Josh and Rebecca were on a mission to find some crabs in the rock pools, they did really well and found two, one was huge....well quite big lol.

 The view from the path back up to the hotel.

 The view from the garden on Saturday morning.

Each year my little nephew, Josh, has brought his little soft toy duck called Marvin. This year his Uncle Justin made a parachute for Marvin out of a couple of napkins and after one disastrous jump from the balcony he seemed to get the hang of it and managed some pretty impressive parachuting!

Finally another one of the beach.

I used to live a few miles down the road from there and have been to many RAF parties in the Saunton Sands - a beautiful part of the world.
