The Beach Cottage Green Vintage Chair comes to the Beach
Fri 30th, Apr, 2010
Do you think one might be considered a little strange if one decides to take a vintage chair to the beach? Huh? Well, if you’ve been with me for a while you’ll probably have ascertained that I am not really one for giving a hoot for what people might think and I’m telling ya that’s just what I did the other Sunday…the weather was a little bit cooler than it has been for a while and seriously needing to get outta the house, we packed up the car with a picnic and headed off to a near but new to us beach.
Now just as all the kiddos were in the back of the car, there’d been the usual run back in for the loo, I had lost the keys and found them again, Mr BC had asked me sixty-five times if I wanted a jumper, I went back into the kitchen and got one of the other member’s of the Beach Cottage Crew…the old green vintage chair…cos I thought she might like to come on the trip with us ;-)
I truly saw the eyes flick upwards from Mr Teenage Beach Cottage and Mr BC questioned the comfort of that chair on the beach…sometimes I really have to wonder about that man…just doesn’t get it ;-) though I suppose I am lucky he is still hanging around this place, I do wonder sometimes if I not only have an inner-brat but an inner lunatic.
We had a lovely afternoon here, the ocean, as you can see, was very calm, the kids just messed around in the water and invented games throwing rocks into the sea…it’s funny how being on the seashore does that isn’t it…even with older kids just being by the water brings out the best…a lovely way to spend some family time.
Mr Beach Cottage and I sat on a rock and just watched and cooked up a few plans…but for most of it we just sat and did and said absolutely nothing…
…later we strolled right around the headland and stopped for an ice cream…
I loved taking these shots, the wildflowers divine…quite unusual colours for me, but a welcome change…
see you later girls and boys
…would you like to come sit on a chair, talk vintage speak and look out to sea with me ;-)
