There’s So Much to Learn Out Here; Homeschooling at the Beach

There's So Much To Learn Out Here; Homeschool at the Beach

Another Beach Day, primarily so I could take photos. It was perfectly overcast, my favourite type of Day. I have English Heritage and most of the time I think I was meant to live in England, under their cloudy skies, total blasphemy to most who would happily take Australia’s perpetually blue skies. It is not a common occurrence in Sunny Australia to have such a cloudy day.

Walking along weather beaten wood over gloomy water, what could be better than that.

On our way in the kids spotted an Octopus {Minnie actually, I have just been corrected}. I think it is the first one I have ever seen in the wild.

It was walking along the sand on it’s tentaclesย and hiding in the seaweed. We were all mesmerised for ages, although it doesn’t look like much in this picture.

The Starfish we saw next was pretty. We live in such a Beautiful City, in a particularly gorgeous part of the world, what a blessing to be able to adventure down to the beach.

Diving In. Or subtly entering the water as truth be told.

I spent time photographing all of these numbers, perhaps I will use them in our homeschool room somehow. The big reveal will be on the blog soon, I can’t wait!

Making our Exit.

Minnie spent some time chatting with the older ladies swimming, she asked them how they were finding the water and if there were any dangerous creatures she should be aware of. People have always told me not to worry about Homeschool socialisation, as given the opportunity they will be able to speak to all kinds of people.

A Game of Beach Soccer, I mean come on, soccer is LIFE.

There’s something about these abandoned shoes, messy towel and jacket that I want to remember. Like a picture of the messiness of life but in a nice location. I should start a new parents hashtag #messinanicelocation {Not really}.

      WOW!!!!! Anita I cannot even fathom not having seen the beach! That is so…. cool. My husband and I once watched a show (I think it was American – The amazing Race). We remember being startled that there were so many on that episode who were scared of swimming. We were talking about it and realised this is such a huge part of Aussie culture as we all mostly live on the coastline (and not the big desert in the middle). Beaches and swimming is so normal for us, but not for everyone. On the other hand, my husband has never seen snow and neither of us would have any idea how to ski, snowboard or anything… I would love to live near the American mountains, and sometimes take for granted how blessed we are to live on such beautiful coastline.
