I think this might be my new favourite view… onboard my SUP! 🔵🔴

After 4.5 hours of paddling yesterday, on my first paddleboarding adventure, my thighs and shoulders have decided to disown me today. But, no pain no gain.

I’m looking forward to taking her out on some shorter trips, in the golden hours and taking a book to read on my pitstop.

I have learnt how to get the SUP inflated and deflated, I managed to fold it up into its bag too! It’s like getting a tent back in its original packaging- it never goes back exactly how it came out! 😂

My top tip for any SUP beginners is to find a slow moving river or lake to practice without a strong current.

My SUP is from @aquaplanetsup. Not an ad.
A little reel of my first paddleboard trip along the river. On my very own beautiful paddleboard too! It was meant to be pink, but the red and blue is perfect. We paddled for 4 hours in total, around the river in Cambridgeshire.

We stopped at Houghton Lock for a picnic and it was so peaceful. I love being out on the river. Albeit I was quite nervous I would fall in, I didn’t. Phew.

I did a combo of stand up paddleboarding, kneeling and sitting to get a rowing rhythm going when I needed it. The wind was against us on the way, which felt hard. But it helped on the way back.

I’m in love with days like this. So beautiful and I felt present, watching the dragonflies, butterflies and even the otters. It’s such a wonderful activity to practice mindfulness and also a spot of yoga. Lots of Table Top positions!

I can’t wait to get out on the river again! Have you tried paddleboarding before?

Devon you were amazing ☀️ We try to get down to North Devon at least once a year. We love the beaches and the beautiful villages along that stretch of coastline.

It was a great week of family time, lots of sun and sea. We felt like we had gone to Spain with the weather. Daddy and the kids camped the week before and had a stunning week of sunshine too.

I managed to read two books and I even went for a swim in the sea 😂 It was nice to have a week of doing not much.

It took us 6 hours to get home. My road trip consisted of multiple stops though as I had the dogs with me. So, I didn’t think it was that bad. Yes, I know it’s quicker to get to actual Spain 😂

Have you ever been down to Devon?

🍦 Tell me you’re on holiday without telling me you’re on holiday!

How much do you think these ginormous ice creams cost? 😱

The views yesterday were absolutely stunning. Woolacoombe you didn’t disappoint. 

The sea was so calm, which I loved but the kiddies wanted waves to bodyboard through. I actually went in the sea. It was quite warm in the shallows.

As the sun reached near its setting place the reflection on the sea was mesmerising. I could have sat there all evening.

More beach days please 🙏🏻 Have you been to the beach this Summer?

My sunset views. The entire day spent travelling was totally worth it. Fresh sea air in my lungs…

We are all together again. Happy holiday! ☀️ 

Are you travelling around the UK this Summer?

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 7 June 2020. We haven't changed much in our lockdown routine, we haven't driven to far away places (much as we would love to) and we haven't gone for days out anywhere. We are still at home, enjoying the garden and walks that are nearby. I am still a bit anxious to go in a place where there will be a large amount of people. This week we have been for a walk with Nanny & Grandad and my Mumma came over to help me with the roses in the garden. Which has been just lovely. What have you been up to? VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 31 May 2020. We have made it through May during lockdown. Another month in these very unusual circumstances. I am hopeful that by the end of July that things will start to be a little more normal. It would be nice to let the children hug their grandparents again. What do you think? VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 24 May 2020. What a tropical weekend it has been so far? We went for a walk yesterday morning and it was definitely a 4 Seasons in one Day kind of day! (Yes, I love Crowded House). We haven’t really managed to spend a lot of time on our new furniture yet due to the high winds. Hoping to have a nice photo for you next weekend. This one was from our walk.

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 17 May 2020. This photo was from our dog walk yesterday. Daddy went on the kayak and met us at the rivers edge for a picnic, then we walked alongside the river back home. Daddy is super fast in the kayak, the kiddies had to run to keep up! I just love this photo, the sky looks pretty and the colours of nature look fantastic too. VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 10 May 2020. Today is Isla's 8th birthday and we have a special lockdown party surprise for her. We took this photo on VE Day and I love it, our most recent family photo. I feel so bad that we can't have a family BBQ like we normally do for Isla's birthday but I am sure we can do this later in the Summer. Happy Sunday everyone! VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 3 May 2020. I loved this photo, on our nature walk, they told me that this tree was a Birch as it had the white bark. Something they’ve learnt from Minecraft. They have learnt a lot from that game. It’s nice seeing things coming to light. Also, it’s exactly 1 week until little Isla’s birthday, I am prepping for a lockdown birthday. Any ideas are welcome…
