Fun for free and a bit of culture thrown in

Well hello,

Today its a lovely sunny day and in England we're not really overrun with days like these so you have to make the most of them.

This morning J took the kids swimming as he is not working today whilst I sorted out the washing and made up a packed lunch.  When they got back from swimming we gathered our buckets, spades, ball, picnic, bag with the spare clothes (a must) packed the boot of the car and off we went clutching the map to Crosby in Liverpool.

We went to see the Anthony Gormley's (a British Sculptor) Another Place which is situated on Crosby beach in Liverpool, it consists of a statues made of Gormley's body spread out across the beach all looking out towards the sea.

We had a few photos with the statues and then settled down on our picnic blanket after playing dodge the jelly fish to build sandcastles, have our picnic lunch and to people watch.  There were many people at the beach today many other families with young children like us, couples, people walking dogs, other people doing the tourist thing having photos took with the statues.

Please find attached photos from our day.

Right off for a cuppa and a knit now whilst ignoring the housework after all tomorrow is another day.
