Living Arrows 26/52

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth

Kahlil Gibran

Last week while BattleDad was in Paris for work, BattleKid and I started to venture out and about a bit more. We were up early one morning so I decided to head for the beach before it got too hot for us. We were in the car by 9am and headed for Cacela Vehla which is only 10 minutes from our new place. There actually isn’t much there apart from a church, police station and a few restaurants, but it has a lovely view of the Ria Formosa.

There was a walkway down towards the shore via steps, but I noticed a warning sign for snakes and thought there’s no way we were going down there alone.

So instead, we got back into the car and headed for Fabrica which our neighbours had mentioned to us. This is a small beach, with water taxis available to take you across to the Ria Formosa. BattleKid and I just had a walk along the sand, dodging the small fishing boats. He also had fun filling his pockets with shells, stopping every few meters to collect more. Unfortunately they were all falling out of his pockets when he sat down to put his shoes back on.

We were back home by 10.15am, which was just as well, as the temperatures crept up to 37 degrees that day. Hot, hot! But we had a lovely morning at the beach, and fully intend to get a boat across to the Ria when it starts to get a little cooler.

  1. I love that you have the beach so close to your home โ€“ and it looks like a lovely one too! Athena and Troy are always collecting shells whenever we get to a beach x
