St James beach day

On Friday it was such a hot day so we took the kids from Muizenberg Beach Club to St James to swim and bodyboard at the beach. We walked along the windy path right next to the ocean, called St James Walkway, and kept getting water splashed on us cause of the huge waves.

The beach was crowded but the boys didn’t care, they just jumped straight into the blue clear water. The guys were great at bodyboarding and caught every wave, laughing all the way into shore.

Bodyboarding

To see the boys so happy whilst playing in the water made me think about how fortunate it is that we are able to take the boys to the beach. If we didn’t take them, they’d probably almost never get a chance to go to the beach and play in the waves like this. When they smile, you automatically find yourself smiling – my cheeks wore sore by the time we had to go back.
