Beach At Last!

I love coconut trees! Baby JoJo in his new suit - so cool! Thanks Bex!
Loving the water
Gorgeous girls
Setting up camp - can you see Dora the Explorer in the tree? She is LissaLou's new favourtie toy, going everywhere with us!

Daddy managing all three of them nicelyA week after our arrival saw our first trip to the beach - St Anne, which is the most touristy and the best for children. Lovely shallow blue water laps around your feet, with golden sand underfoot... The reality for me is ages lathering on sun tan lotion, salt in your eyes and mouth (ugh) and sand sticking to you afterwards, impossible to remove. We laughed at a picture of a new product which is essentially a bag you can hang from a tree and shower under, but as we tipped water from a bottle over ourselves and tried to remove that sticky feeling, it didn't seem such a bad idea!

The girls loved the water, though LissaLou follows in my footsteps and doesn't like the salt very much. It was great to see them splashing around and giggling. Baby JoJo had a few minutes kicking in his baby seat and seemed very pleased with it. He swallowed water once and had a most upset face, which I quite understand!

On our way home we wondered why so many people were standing on the edge of the road watching us, then realised The Tour was due to pass that way. We considered stopping to watch but decided against it - a good decision as they didn't pass for another two hours! People queue early!
