A Word of Caution
Thousands of people will be heading down to Cornwall over the next few weeks to enjoy our beautiful beaches. I hope you all have a wonderful time, but please please take care. The sea is beautiful but can be deadly, take a few minutes to pop over to the RLSS to read the tips on beach safety. You may be a very good swimmer in your local swimming pool, but the sea is very different, it has rips that can drag you out to sea and waves that can knock little ones off their feet. I'm not a strong swimmer so have learned to respect the sea and take precautions. When my children were little they loved the beach and many happy hours were spent splashing in the sea. They were in the local Surf Life Saving clubs Nippers group for children and were taught safety precautions. When my son was caught in a rip while out surfing, he knew what to do and got back to shore safely. Taking the time to read up on safety tips can save your life. I don't mean to sound over dramatic and scare people off, but my one bit of advice would be to go to a beach where there are lifeguards, and do as they tell you. Swim between the flags, stay out of the sea if the red flags are flying and never take your eyes off your children, keep close to them if they are in the sea. Stay safe everyone xx
As for me I will be stuck in work on the hottest day of the year melting! The photos were taken last year on a dull day, but still plenty of fun to be had in the sea. These youngsters were learning to surf safely with a surf school, watched by the local life guards.
Welcome to my new followers, I seem to have more people following me the less I blog haha.
