Watermelon

I don't know about you, but when we go to the beach we don't take much with us....including money. This was our first day on the beach and the boys must have looked very enticing to the beach sellers. They were straight over to us tempting the boys with *very large* pieces of fruit.

Some kids don't like fruit, mine love it, so this was like dangling a large bag if sweets in front of them. They were given samples to taste of melon, pineapple and watermelon.... all the while I'm saying no, no, no thank you....knowing we had only a few euros on us......but the lady is still giving the boys fruit....they were torn between their mum and dad shaking their head at them and this lady telling them to take, take, take...bless em!!

At only two Euros each slice, me thinks this melon was good value, (especially when you consider the small pots in Marks and Spencer).......only we didn't have 6 euros on us, did we!! Eventually the beach seller agreed to take the few euros we had *shame on us* and the boys settled on a slice of watermelon each. Mum reaches for the camera, takes a zillion shots and for once they don't notice.

A trip to the beach is supposed to be relaxing, that 20 minutes was exhausting!!! *laugh*
oooh happy holidays!!

  1. I loved that first photo with your beautiful layering - no picture showing up for the second one though? Maybe it's a problem at my end. I bet it's lovely if the first sneak is anything to go by
