The toddler is not impressed with the sand and the sea

The toddler was not impressed with her first visit to the beach. She did not want to stand on the sand. She screamed when we brought her near the sea and the waves. She did not want to play with her buckets and spades... We had to pick her up and carry her on the beach. Nothing else!

We were so excited to show her the big blue and the endless sand...

The curse of urban dwelling! She prefers a sand pit at the crèche, or a swimming pool. (Sigh)

Tomorrow we will try again. We will try to get her to get used to nature. It is a bit overwhelming for a little one.

In the meantime: It is lovely here at the coast near Durban. We are walking around with summer clothes. We know it is freezing in Johannesburg. Best place to be at the moment!


  1. Reminds me of the first visit for the eldest to the beach ... it was windy as all heck and the sea was roaring ... she was taking none of it. Did not like it one little bit. Hope the weather stays warm for you guys - I'm rather jealous ;-)

  2. Oh I am so jealous! And she will come around some time.


I love to hear your comments :D
