Summer is slowly coming to an end. There is a faint chill in the air, and Facebook is thriving with proud parents posting pictures of their offspring, in school uniform, standing against a door frame.
Oh and it poured with rain on the last bank holiday Monday of the year. Which was a shame, but nevertheless, predictable.
Fortunately it didn't rain all bank holiday weekend, so myself, Mark and Tommy enjoyed a day out by the harbour.
Maldon is about half an hour's drive from the cottage and worth spending a day at.
I do love a beach hut. These can be hired for £50 a day apparently, maybe next year?
Casually sitting in front of the beach hut.
Playing in the sand.
Here's Tommy! He loved running in and out of the little wooden house.
In the little house.
Through the hole.
