- Ted & Debbie (Photographers)
True confessions time-I have never liked taking the kids to the park. There is something about pushing them on the swing(endlessly) or being asked(constantly)to climb the jungle gym,or even just sitting on the benches with otheer moms and nanny’s that I detest. Simon,who will be 3 in a few weeks was only taken to a park and “swung” earlier this year,for the first time,by a friend. Yesterday however, on my own accord,offered to take them to the “park”.
The “park” is Tunnels Beach, a 5 minute walk past a reef full of sea turtles from our house. Ted and Sam had decided to do the 1/2 mile paddle out from Tunnels to the surfing spot and so I asked the younger set it they wanted to walk down with them to go to the “swings”.
Theo,Ollie & Simon spent 2 hours creating a park of their own. They swung,climbed,jumped,dug in the sand,made a boat out of a log and surfed.
I sat on the beach and took in the beautiful scenery. Nicest trip to the park I’ve ever had.
