Rafi, Charlie and I headed to the beach after I picked up Raf from school. It was a bit of an impromptu trip as Rich was in class (the final class of his masters!) and I didn't even bring towels along with us. Still, it was a beautiful evening and it would be have been such a shame to miss what felt like the first proper day of summer. Raf was really nervous about the big waves and didn't want much to do with the water at first... but that soon changed. Before I knew it he'd found a friend and they ran along the beach, dipping in and out of the frigid water, for almost 2 hours! Raf got naked towards the end, and had a fine time covering himself in wet sand and then washing himself off in the sea. He and his new friend had a nice hug as we got into the car. Charlie hung out in the ergo the entire time and seemed to enjoy it.
