Rockpooling in Bude #countrykids

Living by the sea, we are usually to be found on one beach or another in all weathers, but the beginnings of spring definitely make it easier!  Unfortunately our local pebble and sandy beaches don't really have rock pools, so the girls were delighted to find some on a recent trip to Bude.  The girls loved how you could see all the different layers of rock, and they found some very interesting stones on the beach.

It wasn't the warmest day, but clad in jumpers, coats and wellies, Lara and Sophia made the most of the opportunity to scramble over rocks, stand in surprisingly warm pools, and spot some creatures left behind by the receding tide.  Lara was especially fascinated by this idea, and crouched down patiently waiting for something - anything - to move.  The brave soul even took her wellies and tights off!

  1. Looks like you had a lovely day out. I adore Bude, such a beautiful place to visit.

  2. It looks like a lovely day out, we don't live by the seaside but would love the chance to show my children some rockpools as they love animals and nature

  3. I love rockpooling and I'm looking forward to doing some this summer on holiday.

  4. Wow, I soo want to visit Bude after seeing your photos. We try to get to the sea a couple of times a year - so magical with kids.

  5. What wonderful rockpools, and a fabulous beach to explore. It's such a magical thing to explore the crazy critters living in such a small ecosystem isn't it?

  6. I live near the beach and it is sandy in here no rockpools too. This place looks amazing. Want to go there #countrykids

  7. Bude is a great beach to explore and I can see the children had a great time patiently waiting to see what might be living in the rock pools! There's always something to see and do at beaches all year round and guaranteed to keep the children happy. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
