Our hosts had kindly taken time off work the following day, so we had a great walk along the coast to Blackpool Sands for lunch at the Venus Cafe (seriously yummy food here), then a cheeky bus trip back (oh how the boy loves the bus, second only to trains!).
The chaps then nipped out to check Ed's pots (two crabs, two lobsters - winner!), then a late-afternoon trip down to Bantham sands for a spot of prawning and a tea-time picnic.
Actually the menfolk did most of the foraging whilst Milly and I splashed around in the shallows and did a lot of digging with the boys - I love playing on the beach so much and sand is such a treat after our usual southsea stones and shingle! I did try to catch a few shrimps but managed a grand total of 7 before the boy wanted me to do more digging!
But the prawners did considerably better, just enough to cook up on the beach and delicious with bread and butter. Mmmmm, prawns...
Back home with happily tired, prawn-full and filthy toddlers. With them bathed and bedded, it was time for lobster and bubbles for the grown-ups.A heavenly end to a perfect day in the company of great friends.
